Adults suffering from severe dental anxiety, have spent their life neglecting their teeth. Because of this, many are dissatisfied with their general appearance, including mouth, teeth and face.
Losing teeth by poor oral health, can lead to depression, anxiety, poor quality of life and they can feel trapped in a vicious circle beginning with avoidance of dental care followed by a sense of shame and withdrawal from social intercourse. It is a very difficult situation and people find it very hard to overcome to it.
There are many reasons why some people have dental phobia or anxiety. The most common reasons are:
Fear of pain: This fear usually comes from an early and bad dental experience that was painful or unpleasant. Thanks to the advances in dental procedure, most of them are much less painful or completely painless.
Fear of injection: Much people are terrified by needles, and thinking about one being inserted into their mouth makes them very anxious.
Feeling helpless and loss of control: It’s a very common situation to fear being seated in a dental chair, mouth wide open and unable to see what’s happening in there. With this also comes embarrassment and loss of personal space, many people feel uncomfortable with the closeness and become very self-conscious about the appearance of their smile and possible bad breath.
One of the options to help with the problem is go for sedation.
Sedation is done by a licensed anesthesiologist and uses medications to make you feel relaxed during the procedure. Patients are usually conscious but remaining very relaxed and painless, the patient might fall asleep and will not remember much of the procedure.
When coming to get your Snap in Dentures, sedation is available upon request.
