Boosting Comfort with Personalized Sedation
The key to maintaining good oral health is to visit your dentist regularly for routine dental care. However, for many children and adults, sticking to that schedule is more difficult than it is for others. Dental anxiety, fear, and phobia are common and often cause patients to hesitate or skip their dental appointments altogether. This leaves their smiles vulnerable to conditions that grow worse over time, like tooth decay and gum disease, leading to the need for more extensive treatment later. At our office, we offer a variety of customizable dental sedation options, including oral conscious sedation that combines nitrous oxide with an appropriate dose of anti-anxiety meds for optimal relaxation. While the effects of sedation often wear off quickly, you may still feel woozy following your treatment and should plan to have a responsible adult drive you home from your appointment.
