It is a sad but true fact that many patients avoid receiving the dental care they need due to their fears and/or anxieties about going to the dentist. Indeed, some dental procedures and surgeries do involve varying degrees of pain and discomfort. However, at iSmile Dental, we understand these fears and anxieties, which is why we use every means necessary to make each patient’s dental experience as seamless and pain-free as possible. Depending on the needs and requests of each patient, we offer IV, oral and nitrous oxide sedation options. No matter the procedure(s) you need, our team of dental professionals will make sure you receive the safe and comfortable care you need.
Oral sedation involves prescribed medications that are taken by mouth. In most cases, oral sedation is taken an hour before your treatment. Depending on a variety of factors, patients may experience anything from a mild reduction in anxiety to full sedation. In most instances, oral sedation requires patients to arrange transportation to and from the dental office.
Often referred to as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is a sedation option that is inhaled via a nasal mask. Nitrous sedation often makes patients feel excessively drowsy, though in most instances, they will remain conscious and responsive throughout the duration of their treatment. The effects of nitrous sedation wear off quickly, allowing patients to drive themselves home in most cases.
If you’re one of the millions of people across the country that suffer from dental stress and anxiety, sedation dentistry options can offer a truly transformative experience that removes many of the fears that surround a trip to the dentist’s office. Proper oral health and hygiene is critically important to our overall health, which is why it is never a good idea to avoid or postpone dental treatment on the grounds of irrational dental fears and anxieties. In fact, avoiding dental treatment – or sometimes even routine dental cleanings – can result in serious physical health complications, including an increased risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
Whatever the dental procedure or treatment you require, our team of professionals has a dental sedation option that will make your experience as comfortable and pain-free as possible. Whatever you do, don’t put off a necessary treatment out of fear or anxiety. Give our office a call today, and speak with one of our friendly team members about an effective sedation option that will work for you and your needs. We also offer a variety of payment plans and financing options, so there’s no reason why you can’t get the care and treatment you need!
