How do you treat patients with dental anxiety?
We approach each patient from a place of compassion and understanding. We know that the role we play in your healthcare is an important one. We strive to make each patient comfortable through effective communication, kindness, and by gaining your confidence. When that just isn’t enough, we do offer sedation dentistry so that you can avoid anxiety during your treatment. It is always our mission to make sure you are comfortable.
For patients who suffer from dental anxiety or who have a hard time getting numb, oral sedation offers a helpful solution to make your treatment less stressful and more comfortable. Sedation dentistry is also useful for patients who want to complete a lot of treatment in one visit. Since you are completely relaxed, your appointment will seem to go more quickly.
Sedation dentistry relaxes you, making your anesthetic more effective and helping to reduce feelings of fear or anxiousness. That way, your appointment can go smoothly and you can just relax back while we take care of you.
Sometimes, patients are so relaxed, they even doze off during treatment. Oral sedation is safe for most healthy patients. We will ask you for an extensive medical history to make sure sedation is safe for you.
