NERVOUS ABOUT YOUR DENTAL VISIT? ARCH CITY DENTAL OFFERS SEDATION DENTISTRY
Are you apprehensive about dental treatment? Have you avoided going to the dentist because of your fears and anxiety? You are not alone. The American Academy of General Dentistry estimates that about 40 million Americans avoid dental treatment because of their fear and anxiety. Our trained team at Arch City Dental is dedicated to helping you overcome those fears. Maintaining good oral health is extremely important, and our sedation dentistry options can help you conquer your dental fears. To accommodate your specific needs, we offer Oral Conscious Sedation, Nitrous Oxide or IV sedation.
ORAL CONSCIOUS SEDATION
Sometimes referred to as “relaxation” or “anxiety-free” dentistry, Oral Conscious Sedation is as easy as swallowing a pill. You will be able to communicate and respond to the dentist while receiving treatment in a safe, relaxed and stress-free environment. For more information on Oral Conscious Sedation click here
For extremely anxious individuals, we offer nitrous oxide as an option to make you more comfortable during select procedures. Nitrous oxide should make you feel calmer, while remaining conscious, and will wear off soon after treatment has ended. There is an additional charge for nitrous oxide that is often not covered by insurances.
IV sedation is considered a moderate form of dental sedation and is delivered intravenously. This produces an effect much sooner and allows the dentist to adjust the level of sedation as needed during the procedure. Recovery time for both oral and IV sedation takes a little longer and you will need an escort to drive you home.
If apprehension about getting your dental work done and it is interfering with your oral health, sedation dentistry could be the answer for you. Give us a call or come in for a free consultation and discuss your fears with our team, we will help you choose the right form of sedation just for you.
