Sedation Relaxation at My Rivertown Dentist

added on: October 23, 2022
My Rivertown Dentist in Madison

Relaxing and seeing your dentist in Madison, IN, for some people, don’t go hand and hand. Dental anxiety or phobia of having your teeth cleaned is a real thing. According to U.S researchers, anywhere between 50 to 80 percent of adults will admit to some degree of dental anxiety. 

Their study focused on the “Prevalence of Dental Anxiety in Dental Practice Settings,” which is a bigger way of saying how many people are too nervous about getting the care they need to protect their oral health. This means more than 20 percent of anxious people put off their appointments, while another nine to 15 percent don’t do dental checkups — ever. Under the expert guidance of Dr. Ashley Lee, we can help you see and, more importantly, feel what it’s like to be genuinely relaxed at the dentist — no matter what.

She’s got special, advanced education in oral conscious sedation that you need to read more about what sets our Madison dental office apart from the rest.
