Dental anxiety is the anxiety many people feel about going to see their dentist. It can be caused be a fear of experiencing pain, either because of a previous negative experience, or from hearing others share their stories of bad experiences. Some people are afraid receiving injections or that the injection won’t work properly. Some people fear the side effect of anesthesia, and many have a fear of not being in control while they are sitting through a procedure, feeling vulnerable and helpless.
With children, dental anxiety can also happen. At St. George Kids Dental we are happy to provide sedation dentistry to help your child relax during treatment. We are pleased to offer IV sedation at our practice to help your child feel comfortable during their procedure. We administer the medication intravenously which allows us to control the dosages as needed, and because it begins to work very quickly.
