SAN ANTONIO, TX, June 06, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Dentophobia, or a fear of dentists, affects a significant portion of the American population. People who possess this cumbersome phobia find even a routine examination to be incredibly stressful. A more intensive procedure, like having a cavity filled, is simply out of the question for these people. If you have dentophobia, you have probably found yourself in the throes of a mild panic attack before the dentist even comes into the exam room.

Many people with dentophobia have admitted that irrational fear and anxiety about being in a dental exam chair is keeping them from visiting a dentist regularly. Ironically, people who do not see a dentist at least twice a year are usually the ones who need professional dental care the most.

Silver Oaks Dentistry has a solution for dentophobia that will help ease people's worries and allow them to keep their teeth clean and healthy at the same time: Sedation dentistry is now available to San Antonio patients who wish to overcome their anxiety about going to the dentist.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

San Antonio dentist Emanuel F. Dehelean is highly trained in sedation dentistry practices, which are utilized to help nervous patients feel calm and secure during their visits. Many dental procedures he performs at his San Antonio facilities can be completed with the help of sedation dentistry, including:

- Dental implants
- Crown work
- Tooth extraction
- Filling cavities
- Gum therapies
- Tooth whitening
- Professional hygiene visits
- Root canals

While under sedation, patients are not unconscious, but rather, calm and comfortable as Silver Oaks Dentistry's highly trained staff monitors their vital signs. Patients are never left alone.

Consider Sedation Dentistry

Obviously, personal comfort level should be the deciding factor when it comes to deciding whether or not a person should undergo sedation dentistry, but even if for people who are naturally at home in the dental exam chair, there may be another reason to take advantage of sedation dentistry services. Sedation is a viable option not only for patients with anxiety about dental procedures, but also for people who:

- Have a history of traumatic dental experiences
- Have difficulty getting numb
- Have very sensitive teeth
- Have a need to have more dentistry completed in fewer visits
- Have a bad gag reflex
- Are afraid of needles (no IVs needed for oral sedation!)
- Are embarrassed about the amount of dental work that may be required
- Are claustrophobic

Silver Oaks Dentistry is dedicated to ensuring all patients receive the highest quality care possible and maximizing their comfort. If you'd like the dentist's chair to feel more like your recliner at home, then call their San Antonio offices at (210) 656-4699 to schedule your next visit today!
