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
