In this Video Santa Describes Her Sedation Dentistry Experience

Overcoming Dental Fear

6% of people have not seen a dentist in 12 months because of fear of pain

12% to 15% of Americans avoid the dentist because of dental anxiety

As a prosthodontist, Dr. Nargiz Schmidt provides complex procedures such as full mouth reconstructions and dental implants. Often these services can be perceived as scary or make you feel anxious. This can make you apprehensive to move forward with treatment, even though you know it is the best thing for your oral health and overall quality of life. Dr. Schmidt offers numerous types of sedation dentistry to suit each patient’s unique needs and fears. Sedation dentistry offers an escape from anxiety so that you can receive the treatment you need without pain or fear.

Sedation Dentistry Is Available to Suit Every Need

Sedation dentistry can be categorized by different levels, from mild to severe and Dr. Schmidt is a specialist in working with patients with all forms of dental anxiety.  For patients who choose sedation, Dr. Schmidt continues to practice the philosophy of conservative dentistry and provides minimally invasive techniques with a gentle touch. Your visits can be anxiety- and pain-free.

  • Nitrous oxide gives you a temporary feeling of euphoria that lasts only while the treatment is performed so that you can drive yourself to and from your appointment.
  • Oral sedation allows you to feel groggy and relaxed throughout your procedure with the assistance of a prescription pill, although the effects may last for several hours.
  • IV sedation affords you the option to sleep through your entire visit, with no memory of the procedure. Dr. Schmidt works with an anesthesiologist to provide this sedation method.

 

In the book “The Fearless Smile: Overcoming Dental Phobia”, Doctor Schmidt team up with phobia expert and psychologist Dr. Robert H. Reiner to discuss the causes and treatment of dental phobia and tell inspiring true stories of people who have conquered their fear of dentistry through IV sedation dentistry and other behavioral methods.
