Am I a Candidate for Sedation?
If you have a fear of visiting the dentist, sedation could be a great option for you! Many times, the fear of visiting the dentist can result in teeth problems because we fail to go get our regular check-ups and exams. A simple problem that could have been avoided may someday have to be treated because we didn’t take the necessary steps to protect our teeth.
Rather than being overcome by dental anxiety, consider sedation dentistry. If a procedure is recommended for your teeth, sedation could be an option to make you feel at ease and relaxed throughout the entire process. Knowing you can rest calmly while your smile is being improved is a much better option than avoiding the dentist or trying to make it through an exam with anxiety getting the best of you. The fear of the dentist can become a thing of the past once you discover sedation dentistry!
We offer sedation in pill form or in a syrup. This is a great option for patients who experience great fear and anxiety when visiting the dentist. The majority of fearful patients have seen great results when pairing oral sedation with their appointment. The oral sedation will calm your nerves and put you at ease.
Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, comes in the form of anesthetic gas with oxygen and is administered through a small mask. The nitrous oxide takes effect quickly and leaves you feeling comfortable and calm. This sedation is not meant to put you to sleep, but lets you hear and respond to the dentist. This is another great option to make you feel at ease during your visit. Not sure which sedation is right for you? Call New Horizons Dental today to find out more about sedation dentistry. It could change the way you look at the dentist!
From a simple exam and x-ray to more lengthy procedures, we have sedation options for you. Mild sedation can calm your nerves and fears and make a normal check-up a more pleasant experience. You don’t have to avoid the dentist any longer! Call our office today to find out your options for sedation and let us end your fears and worries!
