Are You Afraid To Go To The Dentist?
Our goal is to help you get the dental treatment you need while minimizing any emotional trauma.
Sedation dentistry is commonly used during such routine procedures as teeth cleaning and checkups. By using special dentist-supplied sedatives, anxious patients can get the necessary dental treatment they require. When taken, these sedatives don’t put you to sleep but eliminate your anxiety – so you only have a comfortable and relaxing experience while at the dentist.
Ask yourself these questions:
1) Do you suffer from a high amount of anxiety or stress when going to the dentist? 2) Does this anxiety/stress cause you to avoid seeing your dentist altogether?
If this sounds like you, then you may be a candidate for sedation dentistry. We have been treating people, like you, who have an extreme dental fear and experience a high level of anxiety – no matter what the reason – when visiting their dentist since the beginning.
While under sedation, you will be in a deeply relaxed state and will be responsive when spoken to. Your vital signs are monitored throughout the procedure while your dentist completes his work. At the end of the treatment, you’ll have little or no memory of what was accomplished.
Safe, Easy and Effective!
What kinds of sedatives are available?
The most popular types of dental sedatives are nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation. Different levels of sedation can be utilized depending on an individual’s need. Before administering any type of sedative, the dentist must fully analyze the medical history of the patient, taking note of any current medications and medical conditions.
