Sometimes when it comes to any type of medical appointment, you can get a little nervous.
At Shining Smiles, we understand that while visiting the dentist probably isn’t your favorite thing to do, it’s important to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
If you (or your child, wife, husband, etc.) have a fear of going to the dentist, then there is one thing that can help — sedation dentistry.
What is sedation dentistry?
When it comes to sedation dentistry, there are three primary types of sedation that are used in dental offices:
- Oral sedation
- IV sedation
- Nitrous oxide (also known as “laughing gas”)
Depending on what procedure you are having, we’ll determine which is best suited to meet your needs.
How does it help?
If you have a genuine fear of the dentist, then it’s likely you experience anywhere from a mild level of discomfort to a full-blown panic attack. Sedation dentistry is safe, administered by professionals, and simply helps you to relax during the procedure.
It will put your mind at ease and also help our team do our jobs so that we keep your mouth healthy for years to come.
