If you have anxiety or are fearful of visiting your family dentist, you are not alone. Many people avoid visiting the dentist because of a "dental phobia or anxiety." If this sounds like you, don't worry, we can help!
At TruCare Dental, we provide options that allow you and your family to manage anxiety, nervousness and increase comfort so you can relax during any general or cosmetic dental procedure.
Why You Should Consider Dental Sedation:
- Have a fear of dental work
- Have trouble getting numb
- Uncomfortable dental experiences in the past
- Procedures requiring longer appointments
- More complicated dental procedures
- Fear of needles and shots
- oral sedation
- iv sedation
N2O, also know as laughing gas, is inhaled and helps your body relax during your dental procedure. It remains the most popular form of dental sedation.
With oral sedation, you will experience a deep relaxation but still remain conscious. You will be prescribed a sedative by your doctor which you will take before arriving at the office for your scheduled procedure. Patients must make arrangements for a family member or friend to drive them to and from their dental appointment.
IV Sedation is administered intravenously for lengthier procedures, such as dental implants or wisdom teeth removal. For many patients, IV Sedation may help them manage discomfort, anxiety, reduce inflammation and nervousness the best. Patients must make arrangements for a family member or friend to drive them to and from their dental appointment.
So while dental anxiety is a common problem for many patients, you no longer need to be scared to visit the dentist anymore. Our dental sedation can be used during almost any procedure and can help increase your comfort so you can get the treatment you need.
