Happy Wednesday!!!

Chicago has finally been hit with a cold front and winter has arrived!!

As we come to the end of the year, your dental benefits may be expiring. But there is one thing that is stopping you- your fear to even get your foot in the door!

You should visit your dentist at least twice each year, right?  But people avoid the dentist due to dental fears and anxiety. As a result, these patients put their oral health at risk by avoiding the dentist until a serious problem has developed. And we don’t want that!

Common Dental Phobias

Fear of the unknown

Fear of dental equipment

Sensitive gag reflex

Fear of loud noises

Fear of not being in control


Today, we’ll talk about sedation dentistry so that visiting the dentist doesn’t have to be as scary or uncomfortable.

With sedation dentistry, you’ll feel completely relaxed and at ease during your visit and dental procedures. As a sedation dentist in Lakeview, Sugar Fix Dental Loft offers numerous forms of sedation to help you feel more relaxed.
