Studies show that 20% of the population suffers from dental phobia. Many people who suffer with dental anxiety avoid going to the dentist which can result in neglecting their oral health. One of the main reasons people avoid going to the dentist is the fear of pain. People who fear the dentist can eliminate this concern with IV sedation.

Sedation dentistry is the process of administering medication to patients to help them relax through their dental procedure. It is used to make people feel during their treatments.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are prosthetics made of titanium alloy that replace the root of the tooth and support a prosthesis. Implants are suitable for patients who have lost one, several, or all of their teeth. These prosthetics, once anchored to a healthy bone, provide reliable stability for the patient’s new teeth. Dental implants contribute towards improving your physical appearance and ability to chew.
