If visiting the dentist causes you anxiety and fear, you are not alone. Many people avoid the dentist altogether, because they are frightened by some aspect of dental care. However, Davidian Family & Cosmetic Dentistry has solutions for maximizing your comfort and minimizing your fear, so that you can receive the proper maintenance and care for your teeth.
Sedation dentistry can take the fear out of dental care. We offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) as well as conscious sedation. Nitrous oxide is administered through a mask placed on a patient’s nose. Breathing in the gas allows you to relax, and wears off relatively quickly. Nitrous oxide is safe and we able to control the amount of sedation you receive.
Davidian Family & Cosmetic Dentistry also offers conscious sedation. Also known as moderate sedation, conscious sedation is usually administered with an IV, which gives us continual control of the amount of sedation you receive. Though you will feel groggy, conscious sedation offers deep relaxation for patients while also allowing us to communicate without throughout the procedure.
Regular dental check-ups and maintenance is important for the health of your teeth and gums. Do not let fear and anxiety keep you from important dental procedures.
