We Help Patients Relax
If you are someone who feels nervous about the thought of a dental exam, preventive cleaning, or necessary dental treatment, sedation will make your visit completely stress-free! Our sedation dentist will help you enter a relaxed state that will keep your mind off of your appointment, or even let you enter a state of dreaming while our dentist works on your mouth. Many patients just like you come to our office because of our experience using sedation for challenges such as:
- A severe gag reflex
- Inability to sit still
- Difficulty getting numb with a local anesthetic such as Novocaine
- A limited amount of time to complete your dental care
- Sensitive teeth
- Dislike of noises, smells, tastes associated with dental care
- Discomfort with needles and shots
- Fear & embarrassment about your teeth
What Are Your Options for Sedation Dentistry?
We proudly offer the following options to help you relax during your time with us:
Oral Conscious Sedation – This type of sedation is achieved without using needles. Instead, you simply take a prescribed dose of medication about an hour before your appointment. A number of oral agents developed especially for these purposes are safe and have been used for dental procedures for decades.
Inhaled Minimal Sedation – This method has been used in dentistry for over a century and is considered completely safe, even for its use in children. With a mask placed over your nose, you breathe in nitrous oxide – also referred to as “laughing gas.” This classic type of sedation is effective because it relaxes patients quickly, but also wears off rapidly once the mask is removed.
During your initial assessment, our experienced dentist will take the time to inform you of your options and what to expect with each. Then, along with your input, our dentist will determine which option is best for you. We will make sure you’re completely comfortable before beginning treatment – your health is our main priority!
