    TORONTO, ON, January 18, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Millions of people have dental fear or anxiety. If you are among one of them, you probably spend less time in the dental chair and more time dealing with dental issues.

Many people believe at-home oral hygiene care is all they need, but a dental exam can reveal more. Your dentist can notice dental issues such as tooth decay, worn enamel and gum disease. If you don't get annual exams, you run the risk of developing a dental problem. If you have a dental issue, you will need dental treatment to save your oral health, and more importantly, your tooth.

"A dental cleaning and exam makes some people feel uneasy, so imagine what patients feel like when they need to undergo a dental treatment/procedure. There are varying degrees of dental anxiety, and there is one solution for all of them-general sedation," explains Dr. Andrew Syriopoulos, Toronto, ON dentist. "To help relieve a patient's dental fear, three members of our team can assist with dental sedation."

At Danforth Neighbourhood Dental Centre, Toronto dentists, Drs. Gino Gizzarelli, Patricia Lam and Jenn Nguyen, are certified in anesthetic techniques. Dr. Gizzarelli is a certified specialist in dental anesthesia, and Drs. Lam is certified and experienced in administering oral sedation and nitrous oxide. Dr. Nguyen can also administer nitrous oxide.

If you can't overcome your dental anxiety and need something to help you relax, you need to talk to your dentist before the day of your appointment. At that time, you and your dentist can discuss sedation treatment.

A sedative's main purpose is to keep patients in a calm state. There are two kinds of sedatives: intravenous (IV) sedation and inhalation sedation. At Danforth Neighbourhood Dental Centre, you can choose to get your sedation administered through an IV or a special mask. Most patients are awake during treatment, but they don't register it. For deep sedation, you would be in a controlled unconscious state. With certified dentists administering a sedative, you will wonder why you were even worried in the first place. It's a pain-free, stress-free dental experience!
