We Cater to Cowards! We Treat Phobic Patients! Do NOT Be Embarrassed!
There are a great number of people who are simply afraid to go to the dentist, and therefor delay treatment until they are either in pain or require extensive care – do not worry if this is you.
We can help you. Oral Conscious Sedation is safe and effective, allowing you to finally receive the care you need!
If you are nervous, anxious, or afraid, we can help. We offer both nitrous oxide sedation and oral conscious sedation to help make you relaxed and comfortable during your dental appointment.
Nitrous Oxide is a very safe inhalation agent which is mixed with oxygen and is given via inhalation during treatment. It provides a mild level of sedation and decrease in anxiety. When the procedure is finished, the nitrous oxide is removed and the effect is gone in a matter of minutes, leaving the patient safe to drive themself home. This method is also safe for pediatric patients.
Oral Conscious Sedation is a method of deeper sedation achieved through oral intake of a sedative agent. You are given a pill when you arrive to our office and in a short time, you will be in a state of near-sleep and remain very comfortable throughout the procedure. You will be groggy or tired after so you will not be able to drive yourself home. You will also have very little memory of the procedure.
You’ll be sedated just enough to be unaware of the treatment, as if you were relaxing. You’ll wake up refreshed, with little or no memory of what was accomplished. Because you are completely comfortable, the doctor can do years of dental treatments in as little as one or two visits. The doctor can replace crowns or dentures, restore sore gums to good health, whiten yellow or stained teeth, fix a chipped tooth, and more. People with very busy schedules can get the dental care they need, easily and quickly.
Imagine being able to smile with confidence and chew your food without pain. No wonder so many patients say: “Thank you. Sedation dentistry changed my life.”
