Sedation: Why Step-By-Step Is Best!

Even though you might recognize wholly and completely that dental sedation can be the very beneficial solution you need, that doesn’t mean you are having an easy experience. Of course, this can cause you some serious frustration. It might even cause you to choose to disregard your plans for coming in to learn more and to receive care. So, how to avoid getting a little scared and running in the opposite direction? We suggest: Take steps.

First, Focus On The Initial Step

Don’t think about the preventive dental care, restorative treatments, or anything else you will receive in the future when you’re first getting started in learning about dental sedation. Instead, think only about this first step. Call our team, set up the date and time that works for you to learn about sedation, and come in. That’s all you need to do. It’s not a commitment to anything more in the future.

Next, Focus On The Next Step

Now, you’ve come in to meet with us. You find out that we really are a nice bunch and you have a very solid handle on your dental sedation choices. We have probably already agreed on what will work best for you. Think it over and remind yourself that when you’re ready, we offer sedation and comfortable care.

Then, Continue Your Steps

When you’re ready, you will benefit from coming in for a checkup and a cleaning. This will allow us to learn all about your smile and you can enjoy a nice, relaxing visit, become accustomed to dental sedation, and then go home. After your experience, you may take additional steps (like further preventive care or addressing any restorative needs) when necessary. It’s much more relaxing this way!
