Well, you’re not alone! Nearly 12 million people avoid dentistry out of fear. You know the feeling – you’re at the dentist, and your heart starts to race just thinking about sitting in the chair. You think there is something wrong with you. Most people that feel this way have had a painful dental experience in the past. Why would you want to have that painful experience again? It’s a natural response to avoid what hurts, so we never lecture or put anyone down for their fear. Our rule is 100% respect and no judgment or guilt.
Does this sound like you? Have you been avoiding the dentist because you’re afraid? We have the answer for you! If you dislike dental office sounds and smells, dread sitting in the chair for hours or multiple visits, have problems getting numb, staying numb or with gagging, have teeth so sensitive that the dental exam ‘pick’ is painful… or you’re simply afraid of the needle, then Dr. Jorgensen’s Sedation Dentistry Method is designed just for you.
Deanna Jessee, a Utah resident, says “I’ve always had bad teeth, and I thought I would just go to my grave with them. I couldn’t go through with all the work that needed to be done. Well, when I found out I could sleep through it, I decided to try. I want to tell you how much I appreciate you and what you have done for me. My husband and daughter call it “the miracle.”
How does it work? You decide how sleepy you want to be. If you need help relaxing, a small pill taken before your appointment will help you feel comfortable and calm. If you want to be completely asleep, we offer IV sedation for a deeper effect. With both methods, you are able to “dream” through the visit, stay virtually pain free, and wake up to a healthy mouth and beautiful new smile. Patients often say that it was their easiest dental visit they’ve ever had with minimal to no memory of treatment, and 4 or 5 hours seemed like only minutes.
Dr. Jorgensen’s Sedation Dentistry Method combines “sleep” dentistry with a full range of modern dental techniques to eliminate unhealthy gum infections, bad breath, repair teeth using strong, life-like porcelains and replace missing teeth and eliminate dentures with high tech dental implants for maximum comfort and the ultimate in convenience.
