No Fear Dentistry in Chesapeake

Are you one of the many people who are afraid to go to the dentist in Chesapeake? You’re not alone! Nearly 75 percent of adults in the U.S. have some anxiety before visiting the dentist, and about 5 to 10% of us are true “dental phobics.”

Some people have had previous bad experiences at a dentist. Others get nervous after hearing stories from other people, or don’t like feeling that they’re helpless and don’t have control of the experience. And let’s not get started on how dentists can be portrayed in the movies and TV!

No matter why you’re nervous about going to the dentist, there’s a solution. If pre-visit anxiety is making you avoid the dentist completely, we can help by prescribing a medication for you to take prior to your visit. Sedation dentistry in Chesapeake will help you relax, and you can either sleep through your appointment, or be awake enough to interact with Dr. Brown and her  team. To help the oral sedation work even better, we can also give you nitrous oxide, more commonly known as laughing gas.

Dr. Tanya Brown continually pursues the most up-to-date education possible, including advanced sedation and anesthesia procedures. When you’re relaxed and comfortable, anesthesia to manage pain will work that much better, which in turn will help you relax even more.

If your fear of the dentist has prevented you from even regular check ups, all you have to do is take the first step and call us at the Center for Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry in Chesapeake. We can talk to you about how sedation dentistry can take the anxiety away and help you have comfortable and relaxed dental visits.

Choose Dental Implants in Chesapeake

Even losing one tooth can be devastating, especially if it’s visible to other people. Age, accidents, and gum disease can all contribute to losing teeth. In fact, nearly 30% of adults have lost all or at least one quarter of their teeth, requiring significant restoration, such as dentures, bridges, or dental implants.

Dental implants are crowns that are fixed to titanium supports that replace the root of the tooth. They’re a superior choice for tooth replacement for several reasons:

  • Improved appearance. Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth.
  • Improved speech. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip.
  • Easier eating. Dental implants allow you to eat your favorite foods with confidence.
  • Improved self-esteem. Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.
  • Durability. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.
  • Convenience. Dental implants eliminate the inconvenience of removing dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.

Dr. Tanya Brown recommends dental implants in Chesapeake whenever possible for tooth replacement. Implants can help prevent the bone deterioration that results from the removal of the tooth’s root and are superior to dentures for your overall dental health.
