    MILPITAS, CA, December 20, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- When it comes to dental visits, many people have a natural nervousness; however, for some people, the stress of their upcoming visit is so overwhelming that they can't even step foot in the office. Appointments continue to be cancelled and teeth aren't given the professional care they need. Avoiding the dentist can only make matters worse in the long run. If you find yourself cancelling dental appointments due to anxiety, then fear no more. Milpitas, CA dentist, Dr. Nick Khoury, offers sedation dentistry to calm your nerves and alleviate your stress.

"Too many times I've seen patients say they've delayed going to the dentist because they are scared," says Dr. Khoury, dentist in Milpitas. "I hate to see anyone nervous and stressed over a dental visit. I knew there had to be a way to provide patients with a stress-free dental experience."

Sedation dentistry simply means that either prior to or during a dental procedure, a patient is given a sedative so they can relax during their visit. Sometimes medication may be prescribed before the visit, with the first dose even beginning the night before, if necessary.

"It's important that patients get a good nights rest before a dental procedure," says dentist in Milpitas, CA, Dr. Khoury. "I've heard patients say that they've stayed up all night stressed over their appointment. Prescribing their first dose the night before allows them to be rested and more relaxed for their procedure the next day."

Sedation dentistry comes in a variety of forms, from mild oral sedatives that keep you alert but calm to IV sedation, in which the patient is completely asleep. Based on the dental procedure and the patient, the sedation options will vary. Dr. Khoury, Milpitas, CA dentist, will be happy to sit down with you and discuss your options.

"I believe every patient should get the dental care they need in a safe and comfortable environment. Sedation dentistry has been a lifesaver for many of my patients. They have been very satisfied with the results, and it has made their visits so much easier," says Dr. Khoury, dentist in Milpitas. "Many of them state that they are no longer nervous when they come into the office, and they are more likely to come back for checkups, which keeps their teeth healthier. There's less likely to be serious dental problem when you see your dentist consistently."

If you bite your nails at the thought of the dentist but know you need an exam, don't wait any longer. Contact Dr. Nick Khoury, dentist in Milpitas, CA, at 408) 259-7900, or at, and find out how you can calm your dental fears and get the smile you deserve.
