Stay Calm and Relaxed During Dental Treatment
We understand that many patients have fears about going to the dentist and may even cancel appointments because of them. If this sounds like you, talk to us about sedation dentistry options. We offer several options to help you feel calm and relaxed during treatment so you experience minimal discomfort throughout your visit. Our goal is to help you get through your treatment plan with as little pain and anxiety as possible.
We offer three types and several levels of sedation to ensure our patients do not feel much during their visit. Your options include:
Involves taking anti-anxiety medication before your visit
You inhale gas through a mask and feel the effects within minutes.
We administer anesthesia intravenously to induce deep relaxation.
Best Candidates for Sedation
If you have a hard time relaxing or do not get numb easily, sedation dentistry might be for you. Sedation is suitable for anyone that feels extremely anxious, fearful, or stressed about going to the dentist. Being sedated can help you feel more calm and less anxious during and after treatment. In most cases, the effects wear off quickly and may even induce amnesia. Since it is best not to delay any type of dental treatment we recommend, sedation dentistry can help you work through your treatment plan with ease.
No More Fear of Dental Visits
It’s never a good idea to neglect your oral health by postponing recommended treatments or skipping dental visits. If you are worried about an upcoming visit or have extreme dental anxiety, talk to us about your options with sedation dentistry.
