The fear of going to the dentist is one of the most common fears, often stemming from a bad experience at a dentist’s office during childhood. Of course, dentistry practices and procedures have improved greatly in the last several years, and many procedures that were once very painful are now only mildly uncomfortable. However, many people still experience significant fear and anxiety when they even think of going to the dentist.
The problem occurs when patients allow their fear to cause them to avoid going to the dentist. Many patients put off going to the dentist until they develop a serious, painful condition that could have been avoided. Some patients will even endure great amounts of pain because they cannot bring themselves to make a dental appointment. Oral sedation can help patients overcome dental anxiety and get the treatment they need.
Dr. Riaz Rayek and his staff at Smiles at Fairfax Corner want their patients to be able to relax and get the dental care they need. Dr. Rayek is a member of the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS) and is very experienced at helping patients overcome their anxiety.
