Our Plano TX dental office sees every different kind of patient. We see patients with many dental problems, patients with few dental problems, and of course, fearful patients. Dental fear is a huge problem in this country. In fact, it’s estimated that about 20 million Americans struggle with dental fear. In some cases, fear drives patients away from the dentist altogether.
Skipping your dental appointment will not make your problems go away. The problems in your mouth with only persist. At 1st in Smiles, we take pride in our comfortable treatment and friendly staff. We even offer dental sedation for fearful patients.
Unlike some dental offices, we offer a full range of dental sedation, including IV sedation. IV sedation works instantly and can be easily managed. Patients who use IV sedation have little to no memory of their dental visit and can complete multiple dental problems at once.
I am reminded of one patient who can show other patients just how to overcome their dental anxiety. This patient is middle-aged and has had a long history of bad dental experiences. Not at our office, but when he was much younger. Here is what he has to say about our office.
