Sedation Dentistry & Dental Anxiety
Does the thought of a visit to the dentist's office fill you with fear? If you suffer from dental anxiety, you are not alone. Nearly 40 million Americans have some level of dental phobia. Luckily for our Hayward, CA-area patients, Dr. Wilson Leung works with sedation dentistry specialist Dr when necessary. Sedation dentistry allows our patients to become fully relaxed for the duration of their time in the treatment chair, feeling little or no discomfort.
Many people avoid visiting the dentist for a general dentistry appointment or bi-annual checkup because they associate fear and discomfort with the sights, sounds, and smells of the dentist's office. Even more patients avoid restorative dental repairs such as dental crowns or creating their dream smile with cosmetic dentistry solutions because of dental anxiety. Patients who suffer from dental anxiety often face a number of issues when they finally make it to the dentist's office, and may require extensive maintenance or repairs. Multiple dental procedures can be accomplish during one visit.
What to Expect with Sedation Dentistry
Patients who undergo sedation before a dental procedure are not actually asleep and are able to respond to questions from the treating Dr when necessary. Patients are monitored by a member of the the Sedation Dentistry specialist team to ensure that their sedation is successful and also make sure that they experience little or no discomfort. Please consult with the Sedation Dentistry Specialist Dr for further details.
