Each year, millions of Americans go without needed dental care due to fear or anxiety about their treatment. This is a common feeling, as studies suggest that as much as 75% of the adult population suffers from some degree of dental fear. Plus, as many as one in 10 Americans completely avoid dental treatment because of their overwhelming dental anxiety. If you are one of these people, you no longer have to fear your dental appointments.
Dr. Robert Harrell at Adult Dentistry of Ballantyne is a certified sedation dentist who regularly helps patients receive the treatment they need without stress, worry or pain. In fact, he is one Charlotte’s leading providers of sedation dentistry. While all forms of sedation are available, Adult Dentistry patients typically opt for oral conscious sedation, which is as easy as swallowing a couple of pills.
State dental boards mandate strict guidelines for the practice of sedation dentistry, and Dr. Harrell is fully licensed and guided by years of experience with hundreds of sedation patients. Sedation is an exploding segment of dental treatment, so it evolves quickly. Adult Dentistry is always up to date with the latest advances in the field.
