Prescription sedatives can ease dental anxiety

Plenty of people to have anxieties about going to the dentist. Some are turning to sedation to make the visit a bit easier.

Figures show that 20 percent of Americans avoid some trips to the dentist because of a dental phobia.

Neglecting to get that care for your mouth can cause gum disease and a host of other problems.

Some patients are given sedatives to ease their anxiety. The prescription sedative is taken the night before a procedure to guarantee a good night's sleep, so the patient feels relaxed during the procedure the next day.

For your complete dental care needs, schedule an appointment with Dr. Wright at Pueblo West Dental Care.
