If you are anxious or fearful of the dentist, rest assured that you are not alone. Many patients feel just as uneasy as you do. The most important thing is that you still come in for treatment. Failing to do so can make your susceptible to tooth decay, gum disease and other oral health concerns. For adults that need a little assistance relaxing with treatment, minimal sedation may be just the key.
No matter what the reason behind your stress we are happy to make your visit as relaxing as possible. Minimal sedation can be used during elaborate procedures or during routine cleanings and examinations. Minimal sedation is an oral medication that helps you to relax and forget many aspects of your dental treatment. Due to the sedative, you will need to arrange transportation home from treatment, as you will be unable to safely drive.
It is important to understand that sedation dentistry is not anesthesia and you will be awake and responsive during the entire process. Contact our office for more information today.
