What if i had dental phobia?

Submitted by admin on August 8, 2014

Do you offer sedation for dental procedures? Would you recommend it for people with phobias?

During orthodontic treatment, you often attend every 6 weeks during an average 18-month treatment. If you had a dental phobia, orthodontic treatment would probably not be a good option until you felt comfortable with seeing your dentist in the first instance for routine check-ups. Once you were comfortable with attending your regular family dentist, then we would recommend being seen by an orthodontist to assess your bite and concerns.
