Imagine the following: You are stretched out in a dental chair at the start of a checkup. As a dental assistant wraps a paper bib around your neck and clicks on a bright overhead light, your heart tense up, and your heart begins to pound. If sounds like you, sedation dentistry from Steven T. Cutbirth DDS in Waco can help.
Millions of people experience heightened stress levels when they go to the dentist. Sometimes it’s so intense, people skip the dentist altogether. This is a coping mechanism that psychologists call “avoidence.” The problem with it, of course, is that it puts your dental health at risk.
We offer IV sedation. It does not put you completely asleep, but it does induce a greatly relaxed feeling. You are perfectly safe, but won’t be very aware of what is going on around you.
Unlike other forms of sedation dentistry, IV sedation is administered intravenously. Dr. Cutbirth is one of the few dentists in Texas who is certified to adminster this procedure.
Don’t let anxiety put your dental health at risk! Sedation dentistry from Dr. Steven T. Cutbirth DDS in Waco will get you easily through any procedure. We practice holistic dentistry. Call to schedule an appointment with us today!
