Oral Surgery: When You Don’t Like Needles

We know that when you discover you need oral surgery for your smile but you’re someone who does not like or has a phobia of needles, you may think your ability to receive the care you need is going to be out of the question. Certainly there will be some type of injection or other required instrument that is too far outside of your comfort zone, you assume, so you feel you should probably just walk away. Fantastic news: You are not alone in your feelings! In addition to being in very good company with other like-minded individuals, you are also under our care and we understand the anxiety you’re feeling. Let us explain how we can help!

We’ll Discuss Everything Beforehand

When you aren’t thrilled at the idea of oral surgery because anything to do with needles causes you serious anxiety, then it’s time to come in to have a conversation with us. We know that there are details that come up that we may need to work around with patients, which is more common than you might think. Does this mean we aren’t going to need to make incisions or use certain instruments? No! It means that we will work with you, so that what you experience is a calm journey free of trauma.

Sedation Will Blur The Details

Remember that when you come in for oral surgery and receive dental sedation, it doesn’t just make you calm. It also blurs the details. Have you ever watched a video of someone who has just come out of oral surgery and sedation? They are often convinced they’ve been sleeping. Of course, you will be conscious during your procedure. However, the details may be a bit fuzzy or nonexistent because of the way sedation works. The result? You won’t notice or remember the procedure, the instruments, etc.
