Did you know … A lot of people don’t look forward to going to the dentist. Are you, or someone you love, one of the 15% of people who experience dread when it comes to their appointment at their dentist?
Dental fear can be due to a previous bad experience, challenging developmental or anxiety disorders, an intellectual disability, or simply fear of the unknown. No matter the cause, at Smile Studio Dentistry of Baltimore, our caring and compassionate team is extremely dedicated to ensuring you get the care you want and need … and we understand that for many, dental anxiety or fear is not something you can “talk down.”
That’s why oral sedation, also known as “conscious sedation,” has proven so successful. At our Baltimore office, we are happy to make the experience in our chair less intimidating with this form of sedation dentistry.
How it works … Oral sedation is a pill that is taken in advance of your appointment to produce a calming effect. It minimizes fear and reduces memory of the dental care you receive. You’ll need someone to bring you to your dental appointment and take you home.
With sedation dentistry, we help you sit back, relax, and sometimes even forget you’re at the dentist at all. Safe for children and adults, it’s an extremely effective way to dispel fear.
Our Long-time compassionate team will also help you feel at ease. With many years of training, dentistry experience, and working closely with our patients – people just like you! – to achieve their smile goals, all of us at Smile Studio Dentistry of Baltimore are exceptional in our individual roles. From the moment you walk in our front door and are greeted by our friendly reception team, to the time treatment is completed, you’ll be in good hands every step of the way!
Since 1976, we’ve worked hard to earn the trust of our patients and we treat everyone like close friends and family. When you come to us for your dental care, we will always ensure you’re comfortable and listen to your concerns … because we know just how much a pleasant, attentive, anxiety-free experience means to you.
