Get Comfortable & Relaxing Dental Care
Whether you experienced a childhood trauma or were exposed to too many negative media images of dentists, rest assured that you are one of many who experiences anxiety when it comes to dentist visits. We do not want your anxiety to keep you from maintaining healthy teeth, as tooth decay and pain can lead to increased anxiety and other health problems.
We offer several sedation dentistry options, including:
- Oral conscious sedation
- Nitrous oxide (laughing gas)
- IV sedation
Sedation dentistry intravenously administers medication while you are awake, similar to an anti-anxiety pill. Mothers of children with special sensory processing needs appreciate this service, as it not only helps their children to breathe easier but also lifts the hearts of the mothers who otherwise would have had to struggle through watching their child suffer.
Sedation dentistry can also be beneficial for patients who:
- Have a hard time sitting still
- Have a strong gag reflex
- Have a low pain threshold
- Experience anxiety in small spaces
- Anticipate a long time spent in the dental chair
Sometimes we recommend children receive sedation if they are about to undergo a lengthy procedure, though we generally reserve sedation dentistry for older patients. We do an excellent job of making children feel comfortable, so they rarely require any help alleviating their anxieties.
