Known as sedation dentistry or sleep dentistry, oral medications are administered in pill form prior to your appointment, leaving you alert and able to respond to questions while feeling calm with the emotional anxiety and stress caused by your dental phobia greatly reduced. A member of the DOCS Sedation Care network, Dr. Jill B. Smith’s, DMD practice provides oral conscious sedation, relaxation techniques and nitrous oxide and has received certifications and training as well as facility licenses and permits to provide this wonderful service to Dental Health.
According to Columbia University College of Dental Medicine Blog post, “People with dental phobia also may suffer from poorer health in general, and even lower life expectancy. This is because poor oral health has been found to be related to some life-threatening conditions, such as heart disease and lung infections.”
