How Sedation Can Help
If trips to the dentist make you anxious or nervous, talk to Dr. Oyler about your fear. Dental phobia is more common than most people think, and we have the tools to help you overcome it. Research shows that communication with a dental professional is the first step to restoring your oral health. We can also discuss sedation dentistry options that can guarantee an anxiety-free dental experience.
Sedation Options We Provide
For patients who have severe dental anxiety, or who are undergoing complex procedures, oral conscious sedation offers a powerful solution to reach a more relaxed state. Basically, the patient only has to take a prescribed pill a few hours before their appointment and have someone drive them to and from our office. Although this form of sedation doesn’t put you to sleep, you will likely not be able to remember details from your visit.
For milder cases of dental fear, or for routine procedures, nitrous oxide can provide just the right amount of relaxation. This odorless gas is inhaled through a nasal mask and takes effect in minutes. Then, throughout the visit, we are able to make adjustments as needed for optimal comfort. After we’re finished, the effects of the nitrous oxide wear off quickly, allowing the patient to return to their normal schedule without side effects.
