Nov. 29, 2014 - PRLog -- Apple Valley, MN, November 28, 2014 - In movies and in television, dental phobia is often portrayed as a behavior of quirky, odd individuals. However, estimates indicate that nearly 75 percent of Americans have a measure of fear when it comes to having dental procedures completed. Of those, between five and 10 percent have severe anxiety.

Dakota Dental, a full-service Apple Valley dental clinic offering distinctive dentistry, understands how unnerving dental services can be for those with dental phobias. Whether the anxiety is caused by perceived threats or by post-traumatic stress from a terrible experience, Dakota Dental works to provide a peaceful, pleasant experience for those with dentist dread.

Patients at Dakota Dental are never shamed for their dental phobias or for skipping dental appointments in the past due to these fears. From first contact with Dakota Dental, patients recognize the Apple Valley dentists offer a different kind of dentistry. The friendly staff immediately put people at ease. The waiting area, featuring comfortable furnishings and an aviary, invites patients to relax. And the professional, caring family dentists understand fears and work to make dental care experiences as positive as possible.

One of the “tools” in the Dakota Dental general dentists’ tool bag is sedation dentistry. By judiciously employing a combination of medications, patients can relax while their pain is blocked. Further, the medication is timed to wear off quickly after the appointment, allowing patients to return to their daily activities sooner.

With significant experience and knowledge of sedation medication and techniques – including both oral and intravenous (IV) – the Dakota Dental dentists have found sedation dentistry a highly effective method for addressing dental phobia.
