At Go Natural Dentistry, we want our patients to feel comfortable about their visit. We know that many patients avoid the dentist because they have a fear of pain and discomfort. Dr. Yolanda Cintron and her team of professionals understand this and therefore provide sedation methods, which can be used to put patients at ease in the dental chair.
In our practice, we provide many methods of sedation, including nitrous oxide sedation, oral conscious sedation, and IV sedation.
Nitrous oxide is a gas that can be administered to patients to make them feel almost immediately relaxed in our care. Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide can make patients feel as though they have few cares in the world but are still conscious and able to follow directions. Some patients may even fall asleep if they are relaxed enough. Patients are given oxygen before they leave the dental office, which allows them to become fully alert and able to drive themselves back to work, school, or home.
Oral Conscious Sedation
A special medication can be given to the patient making them feel relaxed and peaceful. Oral conscious sedation requires individuals to arrange transportation before and after their procedure. If necessary, patients are coherent and able to communicate during their dental visit. The next day the patient feels rested and refreshed.
Go Natural Dentistry also offers IV sedation for individuals who have extreme anxieties and fears about the dentist, or for those who will be undergoing very long procedures. Patients must speak to Dr. Yolanda Cintron about this particular type of sedation, as it requires more monitoring of the patient during the procedure than the other methods.
We know and understand that some people suffer from dental anxiety. At our practice, we offer sedation dentistry for anxious patients. Sedation dentistry allows patients who normally experience anxiety to feel comfortable during their procedure. With sedation dentistry, you won't have to hold back from treatment due to dental anxiety again. Our patients love it.
