If you have been avoiding the dentist due to anxiety and fear, we are here to welcome you to our Hunt Valley dentist office and offer solutions.
Dental anxiety, or a fear of the dentist, is one of the most common reasons for poor oral health among adults today. At Valley Dental Health, we work one-on-one with patients who experience anxiety to understand your fear and what may cause it, whether it be a previous bad experience or a fear associated with pain, medical settings and other common stressors. We offer dental sedation options to meet your needs and help you restore your dental health without feeling stressed and anxious.
Sedation Dentistry in Hunt Valley
Dental sedation can help you to feel calm, relaxed and confident while fully alert and able to respond to us during your procedure. We offer all types of sedation, including IV sedation for anyone who needs or desires to be “asleep” during treatment. Dr. Rafat is one of few local Baltimore area dentists who are certified and trained in administering IV sedation.
We will meet with you to discuss your medical history, personal concerns and fears before recommending the sedation option(s) most suitable for you. Our goal is to safely enable you to maintain, restore or enhance your smile without feeling stressed or anxious. Good dental health will not only improve your quality of life, but also help to support your overall health and well being.
