Millions of Americans avoid the dentist because of fear and anxiety, preventing them from receiving the dental care they need. Routine visits to the dentist are very important for the health of not just your mouth, but your body. Tooth decay, plaque build up, and gum disease are all linked to serious health risks like heart disease and diabetes.
Visiting the dentist doesn’t have to be painful or stressful. At the Clearwater dental office of Dr. Radosavljevic, patients are welcomed personally upon arrival and treated with care and compassion throughout their visit. Dr. Radosavljevic has made patient comfort a focus of her practice and offers a range of options to help patients feel comfortable and relaxed during treatment including sedation dentistry.
Sedation dentistry is one way that we help patients feel calm during treatment. Using nitrous oxide sedation, patients are awake, yet relaxed, allowing them to undergo procedures that would make them otherwise apprehensive.
Sedation dentistry is safe and effective. It works by calming the nerves that transmit fear and anxiety. Sedation dentistry is administered under strict guidance of Dr. Radosavljevic and patients are closely monitored during treatment. Though patients are fully awake during the procedure, they often say they felt like they slept through treatment.
We believe that patients should be an active participant in their oral health. We take time to listen to the goals and concerns of each patient and explain their treatment options as well as the details of the procedure. Having a knowledge or understanding of the treatment helps many patients to feel more relaxed and calm.
Our staff will make sure that you have complete pre- and post-treatment instructions so that you know exactly what to expect before, during and after your procedure.
