Research shows that nearly 30{dcbe0cd52ce35e2f156887e14605e24111ce99c14f01d3853732956d43020bdd} of people (or more) avoid the dentist because of fear or anxiety. Are you one of these?  Do you experience the following issues?

  • Fear and anxiety related to dental treatment;
  • Fear of needles;
  • Fear of unpleasant sounds or smells;
  • Fear of losing control of your surroundings;
  • Fear of lengthy dental procedures; or
  • Embarrassment of dental conditions

I’m Corbet Locke, a member of the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, and I want to put those fears out of your mind. My Waco dental office caters to nervous patients and offers creative solutions, like oral sedation, to give you peace of mind about dental procedures.

With oral sedation, you’ll take an oral sedative one hour before your appointment and rest comfortably during the appointment.  You will remain alert but have no real connection to what happens. Many patients state they have no memory of the procedure once the sedative subsides.

One of my patients, Sherry, shared her experience after oral sedation in a video on YouTube.  Sherry experienced tremendous anxiety prior to any dental appointment. After oral sedation, she had no memory of the procedure and no longer fears her dental appointments. Watch her testimonial by clicking on the video, or you can go to http://www.youtube.com/CortbetLockeDDS.

Proven safe and effective, oral sedation has ease millions of people’s fears about receiving dental treatments and has enabled them to regain optimal oral health.  I will take a careful case history prior to your sedation to ensure there are no reactions with medications you are currently taking.
