Dental phobia is a real phenomenon that keeps millions of people from getting the dental care they need, and at Meadowbrook Dentistry, this breaks our hearts. If you’re the type of person who has avoided going to the dentist for years because of anxiety or fear, sedation dentistry can help finally remove that barrier to you getting the smile you deserve. We offer multiple options that can help even the most anxious patients.
With nitrous oxide sedation, all a patient has to do is breathe in a colorless, odorless gas through a small mask to achieve a feeling of floaty happiness in the chair.
Or, we can prescribe oral conscious sedation, in which a patient simply takes a sedative before they come to see us so their appointment quickly flies by.
For someone with more acute dental fear, we can use powerful and fast acting IV sedation. We even offer general anesthesia for those patients who could benefit from simply sleeping through their entire appointment.
No matter what you need to feel comfortable in the chair, we’re ready to provide it, and you’ll be amazed at how soothing going to the dentist can really be. To learn more about sedation and see how we can use it at your next appointment, contact us today.
