If anything has kept you from having the healthy, beautiful smile you deserve, chances are fear is at least one of the reasons. Millions of Americans suffer from dental anxiety, which can threaten their oral health and leave them feeling insecure about cosmetic problems with their smile.
Today, our team at 7 O’Clock Dental want to offer you some hope. Thanks to our advanced technology, our warm staff, and our highly-skilled dentist, Dr. Tripp, we can make you feel comfortable enough to get the dental work you need for a healthier, more attractive smile you want.
That’s because we offer oral sedation to fearful patients just like you. It’s a way for you to stay calm and relaxed while you receive treatment in our New Orleans dental office. The benefits you can reap from it are what we’re talking about today!
Oral Sedation Can Improve Your Oral Health
One of the first things to suffer from the effects of your dental anxiety is your oral health. Your fear has probably kept you from regular dental cleanings and exams for months, or even years, at a time.
Why is this a problem? If you’re afraid of going to the dentist for routine checkups, you put the health of your teeth and gums at risk. Dental problems like tooth decay, enamel erosion, cavities, and gum disease, can all take hold in your mouth slowly and without visible symptoms.
That’s one of the reasons it’s so important to see us regularly. Our skilled hygienists are trained and experienced at catching these problems early enough to effectively treat them before they turn into serious health issues.
Thanks to oral sedation, which is medicine administered in pill form shortly before your appointment, you will be awake during treatment but completely relaxed as it’s happening. Our local anesthetic, if necessary, will ensure a painless experience, and the sedation will keep you comfortable.
With a clean, healthy mouth, you can begin to regain confidence about your smile. You’re also in a much better position to consider restorative and cosmetic dentistry, which can give you even more confidence about your pearly whites!
Oral Sedation Can Improve The Appearance Of Your Smile
At this point, you might still be doubtful that oral sedation could be enough to ease your dental anxiety. If you feel nervous about a dental cleaning and exam, chances are, you can’t imagine feeling comfortable enough to endure other types of procedures.
But that’s the beauty of sedation dentistry. First, though, consider what flaws and imperfections in your smile do to your level of confidence.
Your physical wellness is important, but so is your emotional health. If you’re insecure about your smile’s appearance, those negative feelings will follow you through all of life’s experiences.
You might avoid social situations. You probably don’t feel confident enough to pursue professional advancement at work. Maybe a flawed smile keeps you from a romantic relationship.
Restorative and cosmetic dentistry can change that. You’d be surprised at the ways your smile can be visually improved by natural-looking restorations like dental crowns, or how simple it is to beautify your smile with a simple teeth whitening treatment.
Our sedation option, advanced technology, and warm, caring team of professionals all work together to help you have a comfortable, positive experience in our New Orleans dental office.
When you’ve received the treatment you need for a healthy, beautiful smile, your renewed sense of self-confidence can allow you to enjoy all the experiences you’ve let yourself miss out of because of dental anxiety.

You may have spent years staying away from the dentist because of fear. As a result, you could be dealing with all sorts of dental problems. Maybe you’re even experiencing physical pain on some level such as tender gums or a toothache.
