Dental phobia can be devastating. It has been estimated that 50% of the American population are phobic and don't regularly visit the dentist. Many people avoid their regular check-ups and cleanings, thereby compromising their oral health. In many cases of dental fear, people even avoid the dental office when in extreme pain. Our IV sedation technique safely allows patients the opportunity to reclaim their dental health. Dr. Hirschfield and the entire dental team will listen and address your concerns and help deliver treatment for you to meet your goals comfortably.

Dental anxiety and phobia can develop for many different reasons. It may be due to a previous negative experience, like numbing difficulty, a strong gag reflex, or embarrassment about poor dental health. Whatever the reason, the fear makes it difficult to maintain a healthy smile. Oral health can deteriorate to a critical state, and that is why we are so dedicated to helping dental phobics.

If you've been putting off years of dentistry because of your fears, IV Sedation may be an option for you. How does it work?

A trusted companion will drive you to our office where you will be treated with great care.  Dr. Hirschfield will administer the sedative, you can relax the time away, and we will complete your treatment. After the visit, you will find you won't remember very much, and your smile is now a dazzling one. Then, your companion will take you home and care for you for the next few hours.

If safety is your concern, studies have shown Sedation in dentistry to be safe. The vast majority of patients return to their normal activities the following day, with little to no discomfort.

If you are dental phobic, the key step is contacting us or visiting us for the first time.

We encourage you to bring a companion to support you when you come to our office. Once you have gotten that far, we will give you the help that you need to complete your journey. Give our office a call- change your life. Correct years of dental problems with IV Sedation.
