Many people experience dental anxiety before and during dental procedures. It's okay to feel nervous or even fearful when anticipating an appointment. We understand that our patients aren't all the same. We have many methods available to provide you with a relaxed, comfortable dental experience.
A common form of sedation used in dentistry is intravenous moderate sedation. While sedation dentistry makes the procedure more tolerable for you, you will still require the use of dental anesthetic.
Anxiety prevents 50% of the population from getting even basic dental care. Moderate sedation is a tool available to you to get the treatment you need in a less stressful situation. The use of moderate sedation helps to remove any barrier that stands as an obstacle to a healthier you.
Moderate IV Sedation
Sometimes anxiety about dental treatment keeps treatment from being completed. If you like the option of nearly falling asleep during treatment and waking up at the end, then moderate IV sedation might be a good option for you.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Laughing gas, an inhalation sedative, brings one of the safest and easiest sedation techniques to nearly any procedure. Patients from young to old may benefit from the use of this gas to relieve stress and anxiety over dental treatment.
