If the sound of the dentist drill is keeping you out of the office, call and schedule an appointment with Schaefer Dental. Schaefer Dental are the experts when it comes to Laser Dentistry and can help you overcome your fear of the dentist.
According to Colgate, millions of people all over the world suffer from some sort of dental fear ranging from mild anxiety to dental phobia.
Many people avoid the dentist because of past experiences or a loss of control in the dentist chair. Lying prone with someone standing over you can make you feel uncomfortable, even more so if you suffer from dental phobia. Some patients say that they fear the dentist because of the horror stories told by parents or other family members while others may avoid the dentist because of an indirect experience or a movie they saw.
Up to 75 percent of Americans admit to having some sort of nervousness before seeing the dentist with as many as 15 percent suffering from a genuine dental phobia.
Unfortunately, dental problems do not go away on their own and will only get worse. However, Laser dentistry can change the way you feel about the dentist helping you overcome your fear.
Laser Dentistry can be used for a variety of restorative and cosmetic dental procedures.
The advanced dental lasers used by Dr. Schaefer and his team can actually penetrate the enamel in order to clear out the decay and the bacteria. With laser dentistry, you can skip the painful drilling once and for all.
Laser dentistry can also be used for gum disease therapy as the beam cuts away the diseased gum tissue eliminating the bacteria, plaque, and tartar that resides in the pockets between your teeth and gums.
Dr. Schaefer often uses laser dentistry for cosmetic dentistry procedures including gum reshaping. Laser dentistry for gummy smiles also cuts down on the recovery time.
If you have been neglecting much needed dental care or have avoided cosmetic dental procedures out of fear, call or click and schedule an appointment with Dr. Schaefer who can determine if you are a good candidate for Laser Dentistry.
