Millions of Americans struggle with dental fear, ranging from mild anxiety to severe paranoia. There are many potential causes, and sometimes it is a combination of factors. These may include:
Dental sedation is safe for most people. However, as with any medication, there are some risks. Because your safety and wellbeing are always our top priorities, we will thoroughly review and discuss your medical history before recommending sedation.
It is very important that you provide complete information about existing medical conditions, known allergies, and any medication (prescription or over-the-counter) that you are taking. This information allows us to choose the right sedative medication, avoiding potential adverse effects such as allergies and drug interactions.
Once we have determined that you are a suitable candidate for sedation, we will help you choose the best option for you. Inhaled nitrous oxide is an excellent choice for people who only need mild relaxation, and those who don’t want lingering after-effects. It is administered after you arrive at our office, and the effects fade away quickly, making it possible for you to drive yourself to the appointment and back home.
Oral sedation is a bit stronger than nitrous, and it is generally taken in advance, so that the medication is fully active by the time treatment begins. It is an appropriate choice for patients who are nervous leading up to the appointment, as well as those who want stronger relaxation without a needle.
IV sedation is generally the most powerful option, and it is excellent for patients who want maximum relaxation. It is also popular among patients who want greater control over their level of sedation, because dosage can be adjusted during treatment.
We understand that dental anxiety is complex, and it is difficult to overcome. While sedation is a great benefit to nervous patients, it takes more than that to truly help you relax. That is why we customize care to each person’s unique needs. We encourage you to tell us what makes you uncomfortable, and how we can help.
Our standard of care includes:
You don’t have to face dental anxiety alone. We are with you every step of the way. When you choose Go Natural Dentistry, you don’t just have a new dentist, you have a new dental home. Let us help you smile. Call (855) 381-6001 for a consultation.
