Picture the following scenario: You are stretched out in a chair at the dentist office, holding a remote as you try to tune into your favorite radio station. A dental assistant clips a paper bib around your neck. Someone switches on a bright overhead light and you see latex-gloved hands moving toward your open mouth. You close your eyes.
How does this feel? Does your heart start to race? Are your palms sweaty?
If so, you may be a good candidate for sedation dentistry. Oral sedation benefits nervous dental patients every day. Moderate sedation helps with all types of dental care such as root canals, dental implants, and wisdom teeth removal.
If you are considering extensive restorative or cosmetic dental work, conscious sedation may allow your dentist to complete multiple procedures in a single visit while you remain calm.
Don’t let fear prevent you from getting the dental treatment you need. Schedule a visit with Drs. Vicki Frey to learn about conscious sedation dentistry.
