Whether it’s due to a traumatic episode as a child, or another family member’s nightmare tales of the dreaded dentist chair, people tend to fear the dentist and don’t go when they should. The real nightmare is what may potentially happen if fear keeps you from the dentist altogether. Whatever the reason, without routine dental care, and avoiding obvious warning signs such as pain in the mouth or gums, you risk losing your teeth. Sedation dentistry and our Jackson Heights dentist give hope to those patients who simply can’t handle regular dental visits.
