Does the idea of dentistry cause you to feel anxious and afraid? You are not alone. Dental fear is a very common phobia. Many people have had dental experiences in their childhood that have left emotional scars that are difficult to overcome. Sedation dentistry is a wonderful option to help you achieve a healthy, beautiful smile again.
At Cherry Valley Dental, we offer many options to help you overcome your fear of dentistry. Our compassionate, gentle team is here to help you feel comfortable from the very first visit. Join us for an easy new patient experience where we will take it slow and explain every step of the process. We will start by taking some photographs and digital x-rays of your teeth. Next, we will take a look at your teeth together and talk with you about your goals for your oral health. Dr. Etemadi will create a customized treatment plan for you.
Many patients do very well with digital entertainment or music during treatment to distract them from the sounds of dentistry. Others benefit from the relaxing effect of breathing Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) to take the edge off of their apprehension.
For a deeper state of relaxation, we offer an oral medication to calm the nerves. This is a great option for patients who would like to have multiple procedures completed simultaneously. Most people sleep through the procedure and have very little memory of the experience. The medication is extremely safe and easy to take.
Dr. Etemadi is a an experienced sedation dentist. We understand how you feel. We can help you through it.
