Sedation Dentistry.Press Release September 4, 2008
164 Million Hours of Work Are Lost Each Year in the U.S Due to Dental Disease.
National health studies estimate that up to 57% of people in the U.S. don't see the dentist regularly. What is the cost of untreated dental disease - and how can it be fixed? Dr. Andrey Mazo and Dr. Julian Lender from All Dental in Westborough, MA are now offering a solution: oral sedation dentistry.
The Washington Department of Health states that 164 million hours of work are lost each year in the U.S. due to dental disease. These lost wages and the overall effect on the nation's economy runs into the billions of dollars. Additionally, according to a study by Western Reserve University, 51 million school days are lost by students due to tooth pain.
DOCS Education-trained Dr. Andrey Mazo and Dr. Julian Lender have made adult oral sedation dentistry treatment available at (his/her) office to help treat the estimated 30% of the population who avoids dental care due to fear. Many of these people can be safely and effectively treated with the assistance of oral sedatives. Patients who were once anxious and fearful - and put off having their dental work completed - can receive their dental care while they are totally relaxed and comfortable.
Oral sedation dentistry can help reduce the mounting economic costs and repercussions of untreated dental disease. It enables patients to overcome their dental fear and allows them to receive care in the most comfortable and efficient way possible. Additionally, oral sedation enables Dr. Andrey Mazo and Dr. Julian Lender to perform more dentistry in a single visit, meaning that (his/her) patients don't have to return as many times to complete their treatment, saving both time and money!
