A surprisingly large number of people in Tulsa, and throughout the U.S., suffer from dental anxiety. Unfortunately, the anxiety that these people face is daunting enough that they completely avoid seeing a dentist altogether. Experts estimate that 30 million to 40 million people avoid professional dental care due to dental anxiety
Fortunately, the dental community has taken many steps to help people who suffer from dental anxiety achieve proper oral health. One such step is the use of sedation dentistry, or the use of sedatives to help patients relax during their dental checkups and receive proper dental care.
