Many people fear going to the dentist. Both adults and children alike often find the thought of visiting the dentist sends shivers up their spine, and they have to fight the urge to call and cancel their appointment. Luckily for dental patients today, there are options to help people calm their dental anxiety and make visiting the dentist a more pleasant experience, including sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry will ease dental anxiety and give the patient a relaxing, stress-free appointment.
Laughing gas has been used for a number of years to help people relax before and during different medical procedures. Often, many people find that their anxiety before an appointment is actually worse than the experience itself. For these patients, laughing gas is an effective treatment to help them calm down before any dental work begins. Some patients require a bit more to help them get through their dental appointment.
Intravenous conscious sedation is used to ease any pain associated with the dental treatment or cleaning. Patients are kept awake and aware, but they are relieved of any discomfort that may result while at the dentist office. Dr. Patel at Family & Cosmetic Dental Care specialize in sedation dentistry and welcomes patients, young and old, with dental phobias or any other conditions that make it difficult to receive regular dental care.
Patients are treated as individuals, and all individuals are different. Perhaps you are an adult who can’t explain your dental phobia, or perhaps you are a teen who had a traumatic dental experience as a young child. If you are looking for a more pleasant dental experience, you can trust Dr. Patel of Family & Cosmetic Dental Care. Sedation dentistry will ease dental anxiety so please give us a call for a consultation. We are currently accepting new patients, and we want to make you a patient for life.
