If you’re one of the many people who are afraid of the dentist, you may be looking for ways to make your dental visits more relaxed and comfortable. Dental sedation is one option that can help reduce anxiety and make treatments more tolerable. At Danbury Dental Care Dental practice, we offer several types of sedation to help our patients get the most out of their treatments.
Dental sedation can help reduce anxiety and make treatments more tolerable
Dental sedation can help reduce anxiety and make treatments more tolerable, especially for those who have a fear of needles or dental procedures. Our Essex Dentists offer different types of Sedation, so it’s important to discuss your options with your dentist beforehand. Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, is often used for short procedures such as fillings or teeth cleaning. Oral sedatives are another option that can be taken before appointment time. For longer procedures like root canals, intravenous (IV) sedation may be recommended.
Some of the sedation options we offer include nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and IV conscious sedation.
Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a safe and effective way to help relieve anxiety during dental procedures. Oral conscious sedation is a pill that you take before your appointment which helps you to feel more relaxed during your visit. IV Conscious Sedation is administered through a small cannula and can help provide deeper levels of relaxation for more complex procedures.
