DENTAL ANXIETY AND SEDATION DENTISTRY
Almost everyone has some level of anxiety about going to the dentist and some patients have more anxiety than others. Fortunately, Dr. Luminita Markham is trained and certified in providing sedation dentistry. The rest of this page discusses the cycle of dental anxiety and how Dr. Luminita Markham can help you. If you would like to learn more about sedation dentistry specifically, we encourage you to read this page on our site.
DENTAL ANXIETY CAN BE A DAMAGING CYCLE
Dental anxiety is a factor that unfortunately keeps many patients away from the dentist and as such, dental problems that would have been small and easily fixable, are now larger problems. Treatment that would normally require a single visit, now requires multiple visits and thus, a patient’s dental anxiety only increases upon hearing this information.
AN ADDED BENEFIT OF BEING OUR PATIENT
The good news for patients with anxiety is that, not only are we able to provide sedation, but Dr. Luminita Markham has the training and experience necessary to treat patients with complex dental needs who stayed away from the dentist because they were afraid. And because Dr. Luminita Markham also works with her husband, board-certified orthodontist, Dr. David Markham and Dr. Richard Jackson, board-certified oral surgeon, patients in our practice who have complex treatment needs have many experts who can work together to provide the appropriate dental care.
REDUCE TREATMENT TIME
We understand that people are in this difficult situation and Dr. Luminita Markham can help. And while all dental care cannot be performed in one appointment, sedation dentistry gives us the advantage of being able to schedule longer appointments where we can accomplish more treatment per visit than we otherwise would be for a patient with dental anxiety.
