There are many people that suffer from dental anxiety or phobia. A lot more than you may realize. Most people are so frightened by visiting a dental office that they will choose not to receive necessary treatment. This means that people are refusing treatment for a cavity, infection or other disease that is causing problems. This is not a good idea at all. Leaving diseases or other infections in your mouth without doing anything about it will allow said diseases or infections to spread. Our Ocean City, MD office wants you to have a wonderful smile, as well as excellent oral health. At Delmarva Sedation Dentistry, we want you to know that there are ways to receive treatment without ever feeling any pain or discomfort. Not only is Dr. Dougherty a licensed IV and Oral Sedation dentist, but he’s also a dental sedation examiner for the Maryland Board of Dental Examiners. He knows how much dental phobia can affect a patient’s psyche, which is why he cares about your particular situation.

Dr. Dougherty is a highly skilled dentist that has studied implantology and is well-equipped to help you through your implant surgery. It is important to replace missing teeth because once the original tooth and root are gone, your jawbone begins to shrink. A dental implant can help stop the shrinkage.
The dental implant is composed of two parts: the implant post or root and the actual implant itself. The post will be attached to your jaw by Dr. Dougherty and allowed to heal. Once it’s healed, then the implants can be attached and your smile will be repaired. Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, in part because they’re attached to your jawbone just like your natural teeth.
If you’re missing teeth, dental implants could be the treatment you’ve been waiting for. We’d love to help you learn just how easy it can be. The team here at Delmarva Sedation Dentistry wants to see you smiling proudly again!
