IV Sedation Dentistry in Sarasota, FL
Dental fears are common. According to some estimates, as many as 75% of American adults have some level of dental fear. While most of these cases are mild and don’t interfere with proper dental care, about 5 to 10% of U.S. adults have fear and anxiety so severe that it’s actually classified as a phobia.
When dental anxiety becomes so bad that it causes you to avoid seeing the dentist for regular preventive care, a vicious cycle is created. Without preventive care, you are likely to develop problems. When a problem occurs, you may put off treatment until the problem becomes severe. At this point, more complex treatment is needed, which only validates the fear of the dentist.
At Sarasota Dental Arts, we want to break this cycle.
