Are You Nervous or Fearful
About Your Dental Visit?
You Won’t Be Anymore!
You may be one of the many who stay away from dental offices because of the fear and anxiety from a dentist’s drills, needles, and treatments that take too long. But now, you can say goodbye to such an anxious experience as we offer you conscious sedation dentistry. It is easy and effective. One hour before your appointment you take a pill we have previously given you. When you arrive for your appointment, you will feel quite relaxed. As you sit in the dental chair, progressively you will reach a deeper level of sedation where you are still conscious and able to answer questions asked by the doctor. Throughout your treatment, you are monitored. When your procedure is completed, someone will need to drive you home and in just an hour, you will be back to your normal alertness.
Your level of sedation is less than what is required for surgery. This alternative is for fearful patients – not just fear of dentistry but fear of being unconscious and letting go of control. But conscious sedation lets you be aware of what’s happening without the anxiety or fear of treatment.
We also offer this type of sedation for those who cannot get numb with anesthesia or for those who do not have time for repeated visits to the dentist and would like more work done in a longer appointment. Another alternative for some patients is nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to take care of problems in just one visit!
