Are dental fears keeping you from having a healthy mouth?
Are you afraid of going to the dentist?
Has it been a long time since your last dental appointment due to fear?
Do you have pain or broken teeth that you know should be dealt with but just can't bring yourself to act?
Are you immune to traditional methods of numbing techniques?
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions then conscious oral sedation may be for you.
Who Benefits from Conscious Sedation?
- Anyone who has fear and anxiety about dental treatment of any kind.
- Anyone who has put off dental care for years because of dental anxieties.
- Anyone who wants to have all their dental care completed in one or two visits.
- Anyone who wants to be treated in a relaxed, caring, and comfortable environment.
What To Expect
Once you arrive and are comfortably seated, we will provide you with an oral sedative. This pill is crushed into a fine powder and then placed beneath your tongue where it is absorbed quickly. In less than an hour you will be deeply relaxed and snoozing like a baby. Once you are ready to proceed (and never before) we will begin treatment. We never begin work until you are completely ready. Treatment then proceeds while you sleep. You'll be sedated just enough to be unaware of the treatment, as if you were asleep. We can perform a wide range of dental procedures in a single visit.
Upon completion of your dental treatment under conscious sedation, you will feel relaxed with little or no memory of the procedure. We will have been in contact with your companion and informed them of the pick-up time.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: There are a great many people who are genuinely afraid of dental treatment. That fear originates from a variety of sources - everyone has their own unique set of circumstances. I have absolutely never encountered more courageous individuals than those who find a way to overcome those deep-seated fears and come in to the dental office for the treatment they truly need.
Ladies and gentlemen - that is real courage.
We have helped many individuals with their struggle to find a way to restore health and comfort in their mouths. Without exception, dental phobic patients feel a great sense of accomplishment and relief following treatment. They come away feeling proud of themselves for what they have accomplished.
