Dentophobia, or the fear of dental work, affects countless Americans every year. This fear of visiting the dentist prevents many people from receiving the oral care they need and causes some people to go too long without a professional cleaning or dental exam. Fortunately, the offices of Rifkin & Raanan offers a simple and stress-free solution for dental anxieties. We proudly offer sedation dentistry options for our patients who are uncomfortable with receiving dental work.
Sedation dentistry implores the use of sedatives before or during dental procedures to relax the patient enough to complete the oral work without compromising patient comfort. These methods have been in use for over a century and are safe and efficient. In order to practice sedation dentistry, Dr. Raanan completed specialized training beyond standard dentist school.
When considering sedation dentistry, there are various options and levels of sedation to choose from. Dr. Raanan will assess your level of dental anxiety and choose a comfortable and conservative form of sedation for your procedure.
