Sedation Dentistry

We Can Help those with Any Level of Dental Anxiety

As many as 40 million people avoid going to the dentist from anxiety or fear. Skipping appointments puts the health of the smile at risk, as routine appointments help to remove harmful plaque and tartar from the teeth and address any concerns before they get worse. If treatment has been put off for some time, more extensive work may be needed, causing additional concern. Because we believe every patient deserves to get the dental care they need, at Traverse Dental we offer different levels of sedation for each level of anxiety, and is available for most of our treatments. Dental fear and anxiety may stem from any of the following:

  • A Negative Past Experience
  • Fear of the Dental Drill
  • Fear of Needles
  • Fear of Pain or the Unknown
  • Anxiety from Feeling Out of Control
