Many people avoid going to the dentist because of fear, anxiety, or nervousness. This can be very dangerous to your oral health and to your overall well being. If you are not visiting a dentist regularly for hygiene visits, it could result in greater health issues down the road. Allow Dr. Ana Cluff to put your mind at rest with sedation dentistry.
Sedation Dentistry to Put You at Ease
Sedation dentistry can help relax your mind and body to make the dental process seem much more inviting and safe. Some of the options we offer in sedation dentistry are:
Laughing Gas | Dental patients who want to feel relaxed and calm during treatments often choose laughing gas sedation. Laughing gas is a safe and effective way to reduce anxiety. The gas is administered by placing a small mask on your face that mixes with oxygen to release the gas in the air you breathe in. This is a mild form of sedation and can be used on children. You can even drive home safely after your visit!
Oral Conscious Sedation | Being able to interact with the dentist and staff is important when you’re having a procedure done. When using oral conscious sedation, you are still able to respond to questions while this sedation helps you to stay calm and collected. It takes a while to wear off, and you should arrange for a ride home, but oral conscious sedation is a popular and easy-to-administer sedation choice.
