At ProActive Dental Studio, we offer sedation services for patients who feel anxious about their next dental appointment.
Nervous about visiting the dentist?
If you get anxious about visiting the dentist, you're not alone. Often, even people who go to the dentist on a regular basis still feel anxious about it.
Fear is one of the biggest reason people avoid dentists. But it doesn't have to be!
If you experience anxiety about dental procedures, we can help. We offer a variety of safe, effective sedation options that will help you feel more at ease during your next dental appointment.
Sedation will help your relax while undergoing dental procedures, which means that you're more likely to get dental care when you need it – and that results in better oral health!
What is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation for dentistry is when we use medication to help ease patients' anxiety before, during and after dental treatment.
Sedation is often recommended for patients who get highly anxious about dental procedures, or who have extensive treatment needs, time constraints, and/or a severe gag reflex.
Oral medication is easily administered in the form of liquid or pills. Oral sedatives can be taken the night before to help you sleep, and taken one hour before your appointment to reduce anxiety leading up to and during any treatment.
Nitrous Oxide, which is also known as laughing gas, is an inhaled gas. Since each person is different, the gas levels can easily be adjusted to your needs during your appointment.
