When you think about visiting your local dentist for a visit, do you good things run through your mind or panicked thoughts? If your first reaction is related to sweaty palms and anxiety when someone mentions the dentist, you should consider visiting an office that is sure to put patient comforts first so that you can receive your dental care your smile really needs in a positive, comfortable environment.
There are actually three ways that your sedation dentist in Wharton may be able to help you overcome your dental fear: nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and our dental team’s approach to comfortable dentistry.
Our Office Puts Patient’s Needs First
One of the biggest decisions that you can make when choosing your perfect dentist is to pick an office that caters to your needs—even if you don’t particularly enjoy visiting their practice because of your anxiety or fear. Despite how you may feel about dentistry, your dentist in Wharton should do everything in their power to help you feel relaxed, open, and just like you’re at home.
If you still have a hard time letting go of your dental fear despite comforts like our homey lobby, comfortable dental chairs, coffee and beverage bar, among other things, then you might want to explore your sedation options.
Explore Sedation Dentistry to Get Past Your Dental Anxiety
Are you ready to get the dental care that your smile really needs? Your local dentist offers two forms of sedation to help you look past your dental fear: nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oral conscious sedation.
Nitrous oxide is a very light form of sedation that most patients recognize as laughing gas. It causes a gentle, relaxing feeling, usually leaving people in a laughing fit. Patients remain awake and feel giddy during their dental appointment, completely relieving their dental anxiety. You won’t need an escort to get home after your visit.
Oral conscious sedation is a mild form of sedation dentistry. It’s a small pill that is taken orally an hour before the appointment, making patients feel a bit drowsy. Many times, patients drift off into a gentle sleep while their appointment takes place. By the time your appointment is over, you’ll not only have cleaner, brighter teeth but some patients don’t even remember the dental experience.
Get in Contact with Your Sedation Dentist
Getting the dental care that you need is a simple phone call away. All you have to do is speak to your dentist about what they can do to help you feel comfortable.
