How Sedation Dentistry Can Save Your Holiday Smile [BLOG]

sedation_2 | Tieken Smiles Dentistry

As exciting and joyous as the holidays can be, they can definitely open the door for added stress. You have a long shopping list to take care of, recipes to perfect, and parties or other special events to attend.

It’s fun, of course, but it’s also a lot to manage on top of your daily responsibilities. That’s why you don’t need to aggravate things with worry and anxiety because you’re embarrassed about your teeth and gums being in bad shape.

If dental fear has kept you from a healthy, beautiful smile, today’s blog is just what you needed! That’s because our team at Tieken Smiles is sharing two ways sedation dentistry in our League City, TX dental office can help save your holiday smile this year!

Sedation Dentistry: A Healthier Holiday Smile

Fearing the dentist is not at all uncommon. In fact, millions of Americans suffer from some level of dental anxiety. Although everyone has different reasons for their fear of dental care, too many will let it stand in the way of routine cleanings and exams. This can put your oral and overall health at risk.

We don’t want anyone’s health to be threaten by dental fear. It’s one of the reasons our team at Tieken Smiles goes above and beyond in helping you feel calm and comfortable when you visit us.

Sedation dentistry is a huge part of that effort. It can put you into the right state of relaxation so our skilled hygienists can give your teeth and gums a deep cleaning to eradicate plaque and tartar buildup and one of our dentists to thoroughly exam your mouth for current or potential oral health problems.

And yes, sedation dentistry can even be powerful enough to help you endure restorative treatment to get your oral health back on track, no matter how long you’ve stayed away from the dental chair.

Sedation Dentistry: A Prettier Holiday Smile

Good health isn’t limited to physical wellness. It’s also about your state of mind. When you feel good about your appearance, you feel more secure and confident to pursue the life you want.

It can begin with a more attractive smile. But if you’re afraid of the dentist to the point where you can barely make it to regular checkups, you’re certainly not likely to pursue cosmetic dental treatment. The last thing you want to be is social when you’re embarrassed about flaws and imperfections in your smile.

This is another way sedation dentistry can improve your life, especially when it comes to the inevitable stream of special events around the holidays!

As the season moves along, you get closer and closer to New Year’s and a list of resolutions. You might be interested in dating again. Or maybe you’ve been thinking about throwing your hat in the ring for an upcoming promotion at work. Whatever your goals and dreams, a beautiful smile can give you the courage it takes to pursue them.

Sedation dentistry can help you feel calm and relaxed so you can get the cosmetic dentistry you might need to make that happen.

Your Sedation Dentistry Options

At Tieken Smiles, we know that everyone’s needs are different. That’s why we offer three different sedation options so you can choose the right method to help you overcome your level of dental anxiety.

You could opt for:

-Nitrous Oxide For Mild Anxiety

-Oral Sedation For Moderate Anxiety

-IV Sedation For Severe Anxiety

Dr. Tieken can help you choose the one that’s best for you so you can feel as comfortable as possible in our League City, TX dental office.

Tieken Smiles Can Help You!

A healthy, beautiful smile can’t be achieved with good oral hygiene alone. It happens with a collaborative effort between you and high-quality, professional dental care like you’ll find at Tieken Smiles.

But our caring team knows that’s much easier said than done for many patients. Dental anxiety can be a paralyzing fear that keeps you from a healthy mouth and a confident, beautiful smile. That’s why we’re dedicated to your comfort in our League City, TX dental office.

Let us help you enter the holiday season in good health with a smile that looks as great as you feel with our sedation dentistry options. Call Tieken Smiles at 281-942-6615 or fill out our convenient online form to schedule an appointment.
