Many people associate dental visits with fear or anxiety due to childhood trauma or memories of painful dental treatment.
For a few people, even the sound of a dentist's drill is enough to trigger an alarmed reaction.
However, many of these people may not be aware that most dental procedures can be performed without pain or discomfort thanks to the modern relaxation and sedation dentistry options.
Even the most nervous of patients can get the treatment they need to maintain proper oral health and achieve a winning smile without unnecessary worry, stress, or pain.
