Dental Fear: We Offer Lots Of Options

worrydontworrysignIf you are experiencing dental fear, you might not really know where to begin when it comes to finding a way to manage your anxiety and take care of your oral health. We understand the subtle nuances of what you are going through, which can make even the initial steps of setting up care quite difficult. To help you become more familiar with your options, so you can think it over without feeling forced into action, we offer you some surprisingly helpful solutions.

A Rundown On Our Sedation Choices

First things first, we encourage you to think forward toward the future. When you do, in fact, find the motivation necessary to come in for your visit, you will be able to quickly feel extremely relaxed. This is because we offer dental sedation to address your dental fear! Of course, we provide multiple options, so you can receive the level of sedation that you are comfortable with (or so that you may try different options until you find one that perfectly suits your needs). Sedation types include the following:

  • Nitrous oxide (AKA: Laughing gas)
  • Oral sedation
  • Oral sedation plus nitrous oxide
  • IV sedation
