Woman with hand over mouth due to dental anxiety

Oral surgery can be a little overwhelming and a bit stressful for many patients. For those who deal with dental anxiety or phobia, it can become a seemingly insurmountable object. Many will put off necessary surgery because of an overwhelming and uncontrollable feeling of anxiety that accompanies the idea of a visit to the oral surgeon.

If you are among the 3 out of 4 people who say they experience dental anxiety, let us reassure you that we at the Maxillofacial Surgery Center understand your feelings

Is is possible to not only overcome dental anxiety but to feel relaxed and comfortable during a dental visit? You’ll be relieved to know it is. Sedation dentistry makes it possible.

What is sedation dentistry and how does using sedation dentistry feel? Our blog will give you the answers.

The Solution – Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry involves using various forms of medication that help you relax during treatment. Just as people have varying levels of anxiety, there are different levels of sedation, from “light” to “deep”.

When you are in the care of Dr. Wilson, oral surgery is both a pleasant and safe experience. He is licensed and credentialed in Arizona to offer all levels of anesthesia and sedation dentistry, so patients who are nervous, seeking comfort, or have fears can feel at ease from the beginning to the end of any treatment.

All treatments offered by Dr. Wilson can be performed with sedation.
