We’d like to ask you a sensitive question—when was the last time you saw the dentist? Because the American Dental Association recommends biannual dental checkups and cleanings, the correct answer to that question is sometime in the last six months. However, there are many people who are simply too afraid to see the dentist. Estimates are that more than 30 percent of adults fall into this category. If you happen to be one of these people, we’d like to make a suggestion—see your dentist in Allen just to talk about sedation dentistry. Dr. Michael Ryan and Dr. Laura Ryan offer three types of sedation. The one that’s right for you will depend on your level of anxiety and what kind of dental procedure you need.
