Are You Like 40 Million Other Americans?
Are you afraid of the dentist? Surprisingly, many adults have a deep-seated fear about visiting their local practice. It can happen because of the media, discussion about negative dental experiences from friends, or a personally bad experience at the dental office in the past. No matter what the reasoning behind a patient's fear of the dentist's chair is, Dr. Kevin Rykard can help!
Enjoy A Much More Comfortable Experience
Sedation dentistry allows Dr. Rykard the opportunity to put patients at ease and help them have a positive time at the dentist. Oral medication is taken before their visit, which means that you'll need to arrange for transportation to and from the appointment. Patients are awake, conscious, and are able to answer questions and converse with the dentist throughout the procedure. However, due to the amnesic effect of the medication, they'll wake up the following day with no recollection of the entire appointment. This allows Dr. Rykard the opportunity to provide full mouth restorations in just one appointment, saving both patient and dentist time and money.
"Dr. Rykard saved my teeth! I was so afraid of the dentist I had not even had my teeth cleaned in over 10 years. I had multiple traumatic experiences in my past, so I had given up on my teeth. I had gotten a recommendation for Dr. Rykard from a friend of mine to try him for my son, who has autism. My son had never successfully been to a dentist in the past and had a tooth that was broken in half and giving him a lot of pain. After I saw with amazement the use of sedation dentistry on my son, I thought I would give it a try myself. It was so amazing to go to a dentist and not even remember what had happened. Since that first visit I have been back many times, and I have a wonderful set of fully functioning beautiful teeth, as does my son! And we both owe it all to him and his wonderful staff! They take good care of us and they will take good care of you too!"
