Below are ways that we can see to your comfort:

Conscious Sedation
Alternative ways to manage pain and anxiety during the dental appointment

Millions of Americans avoid the dentist. Some had past traumatic dental experiences as children or pain as adults. Far too many of these individuals simply stopped seeing the dentist for routine dental visits. Now their overall health may be at risk. If this sounds like you, we want to help. Whether you have been postponing a simple dental checkup, restorative care or in search of a brand new smile now it is time to take care of yourself and move forward into a healthier future! Modern dentistry offers many alternatives and options to make necessary dental treatment tolerable and even comfortable using sedation dentistry.

 

Inhalation sedation – Nitrous oxide or “laughing gas”. This is the most frequently used sedation method used in dentistry.

 

Oral sedation – “Relaxation dentistry” where a sedative pill is administered before the dental appointment to help with relaxation. Unlike General Anesthesia where the patient is completely unconscious, asleep, and unable to respond, patients under Conscious Sedation, are able to respond to commands and breath on their own.

 

Patient Comfort Measures
TV’s, noise cancelling headphones, soothing warm towels, aromatherapy, lip balm, warm neck wraps, blankets, refreshing beverages and the silver tray!)
