It is common for Shrewsbury area patients to feel uneasy about visiting their dentist. For years, patients of all ages have been hesitant about the dental chair, often associating these visits with pain, scary sounds, and the smells that accompany any medical facility. However, Dr. Stanley Levenson has methods available to put patients at ease and allow them to enjoy a positive experience with their dentist. He offers painless dental care in the Shrewsbury area for new and existing patients.
Is there such a thing as "painless dental care?" Yes! Dr. Stanley Levenson knows that the anticipation of pain is the primary reason patients are fearful about visiting the dentist. This is why he has gone through the training and certification needed to offer oral conscious sedation.
Oral conscious sedation is a sedative method that allows patients to feel at ease before and during their appointment. Patients take a single pill that can help them relax. These patients are told to arrange transportation to and from their visit since they are not allowed to drive a vehicle. Oral conscious sedation may also make some patients sleepy so it is important to have someone there to help get you back home after the appointment.
Dr. Stanley Levenson is a member of DOCS (Doctors for Oral Conscious Sedation) and is qualified to provide this sedative method with any treatments in his practice. Some patients who are extremely fearful of the dental office may even use oral conscious sedation for their cleanings and examinations to help them overcome the anxieties they often feel around the dental office. In time, many patients are able to feel much more comfortable with the team and dentist and eliminate oral conscious sedation altogether. This is a wonderful first step for anyone who wants to take charge of their dental health but have negative associations with the dental office.
Dr. Stanley Levenson is here to offer patients a variety of treatments to improve their dental health and the aesthetics of their smile, and encourages all patients in the Shrewsbury and Worcester areas to contact his dental facility to book their initial consultation appointment with his team of professionals.
