Dentistry, unfortunately, has a bad rap. A lot of patients are nervous about going to the dentist. Studies show 17% of the population. In fact, some people are so nervous about going to the dentist, we actually have to put them out to do routine dental work. Almost always when I see this, this has to do with bad prior experiences. Not here I might add. But some of these patients come in and they'd been so traumatized. I actually have a patient who has a Superbowl ring. He's a famous quarterback. I won't tell anybody his name. But he faints when he goes to the dentist. We've taken care of him and he still flies in from the East Coast to have us take care of him. These patients need extra help. And we have cops, fireman, people from all walks of life, and sedation will help these patients overcome these fears and get the necessary work done.
Unfortunately, this gets to become a self fulfilling prophecy. Patients are afraid, they don't want to come in, they're afraid of what they'll find. And as they put their visits, their routine care off, 5 years, 10 years, 15 years, Inevitably they're going to have problems. And inevitably they're going to have some work to catch up to get them back up to speed, and back to being healthy. Sedation is a way these patients can overcome their fears, but also catch up on a lot of backlog of work. Patients typically, when they stay away that long, have a lot of work to have to do to get them back up to being healthy. With sedation, you can get a lot of work done in fewer visits. And that's often very large appeal for these people.
