We know going to the dentist can be frightening for some individuals. Dental phobia is a common phenomenon that affects millions of Americans each day. Our practice uses sedation dentistry to help our patients feel anxiety-free and relaxed during their treatment.
Benefits of Sedation Dentistry
If you have dental phobia, our team may recommend one of several types of sedation after reviewing your medical history. It provides numerous benefits, including:
- Reduced anxiety and fear
- Enhanced comfort
- Time savings
- Increased cooperation
- Improved numbing effectiveness
- Memory loss and relaxation
- Broad applicability
- Safe and monitored experience
- Positive dental experiences
What Types of Sedation Do We Offer?
The next level of sedation is oral sedation, which does not require needles. Our office can offer several kinds of medication for you to take in the form of a pill. Oral sedation is slightly stronger than nitrous oxide, so a responsible adult must take you to and from the appointment. Our doctors will decide if this form of sedation is right for you based on your medical history.
Nitrous oxide (commonly called laughing gas) has been the primary way doctors have helped relieve patients from anxiety. The gas is administered through a face mask, and you inhale it through your nose. As the anesthetic begins to work, you’ll feel a bit groggy and desensitized. Patients who choose nitrous oxide for sedation can resume normal daily activities when the treatment is finished. We offer this when treating kids
