Does the thought of a visit to the dentist’s office make you a little anxious?

If you suffer from dental anxiety, you are not alone. Nearly 40 million Americans have some level of dental phobia. Luckily for our La Mesa-area patients, Dr. Ben Mandel and his team offer sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry allows our patients to become fully relaxed for the duration of their time in the treatment chair, feeling little or no discomfort.

Many people avoid visiting the dentist for a general dentistry appointment or bi-annual checkup because they associate fear and discomfort with the sights, sounds, and smells of the dentist’s office. Even more patients avoid restorative dental repairs such as dental crowns or creating their dream smile with cosmetic dentistry solutions because of dental anxiety. Patients who suffer from dental anxiety often face a number of issues when they finally make it to the dentist’s office, and may require extensive maintenance or repairs. With sedation dentistry, Dr. Ben Mandel can perform multiple procedures in one comfortable visit while the patient reclines in a state of total relaxation.
