Dr. Preece is a sedation dentist in Anchorage, Alaska who uses a process that involves the use of medications to enhance patient comfort during a dental procedure. The sedatives are used for relieving stress and anxiety, allowing a dental experience to be agreeable, rather than full of fear.

In the past few years, sedation dentistry has become extremely popular due to the many benefits it offers patients and dentists. For anyone suffering from any type of dental phobia, sedation dentistry provides an option that will allow them to improve their dental health by undergoing the necessary dental procedures.

If patients continue to avoid visiting their Anchorage dentist, they can experience a number of issues, including pain and discomfort in their mouths, periodontal disease and even the loss of teeth. If any dental issues are present, they will not go away or get better without treatment, which is why patients need to seek professional treatment right away. This can help them prevent serious issues down the road.

The majority of patients who suffer from any type of dental phobia typically delay their treatment, or avoid this treatment altogether by distancing themselves from the dental office. With the sedation that is provided, patients will feel free from stress, fear and anxiety and be completely relaxed as the procedure is completed.

Some of the other most appealing benefits offered by sedation dentistry is the elimination of pain, without the need for any type of anesthesia. Now you can enjoy the benefits of this process, allowing you to have great dental health and get the treatment you need, when you need it, eliminating the chance of additional issues.
