Adults and children who have not been introduced properly - or at all to a good, professional, and comforting dental team may have a hard time going to the dentist. This is in part due to anxiety and fear of not knowing what to expect.
Sedation is recommended for patients undergoing long, complex, or invasive procedures. However, dental sedation can be the best option for an extremely nervous patient, as well. Our team uses laughing gas to help our patients relax. Laughing gas is a gentle sedation method administered through the nose and allows the patient to breathe in the gas. The gas puts patients in a state of calm, allowing the dentist to do all dental work without causing any discomfort or anxiety for the patient.
If a patient, old or young, tends to experience severe nervousness due to this being a very first visit or perhaps it has been many years since a previous traumatic experience, we as dental experts will make it our priority to make them as comfortable as possible before any treatment is started.
As far as young children are concerned, our staff is highly trained in calming techniques that may not require any sedatives. During the initial visit, we will get to know each child and introduce them to the dental team while making it a fun and educational experience.
No matter the treatment or procedure you need, you can rest easy knowing that we will do everything we can to help you relax in the dentist’s chair. Are you worried about feeling pain? We can make you comfortable and numb thanks to the latest local anesthesia techniques. Your safety and comfort are our highest priority, and every aspect of your care will be discussed with you in detail prior to treatment.
