64% of People suffer from Dental Anxiety

Many people avoid the dentists due to dental fear. Often people will avoid the dentist for years. Years of dental neglect, embarrassment or pain will eventually bring people back to the dentist. Sedation dentistry is a great option for those who are not able to tolerate the dentist due to fear or any other reason. Sedation dentistry will allow someone to sleep comfortably under dental anesthesia or a dental sedative  while years of dentistry can get done.

Sleep Dentist Reviews

I’m a huge baby when it comes to going to the dentist but I found the Maryland Sedation Dentist and all of that changed (not really – they just know how to treat a 28yo baby lol). I started treatment with Dr. Adams 5-6 years ago. She’s cute and an amazing dentist (who knew that possible?). Her staff is extremely pleasant and make you fell warm.

I am not usually too nervous about medical procedures, but I cannot stand needles in my mouth. Since I had been dodging the dentist for a few years, I had a laundry list of dental work I needed done. Dr. Adams completed all my work in one sedation dentist visit. I really do not remember anything other than getting the IV inserted. I can’t thank the staff enough for making my experience so easy and comfortable.
