Did you know that according to recent studies, nearly 30% of Americans are fearful of going to the dentist! In fact, many anxious patients have not been to the dentist for years, and are fearful of dental treatment. They struggle with anxiety about dental care, and put off essential dental treatment that can easily address tooth and gum pain, and brighten their smile. Although modern sedation dentistry has arrived to address these fears, many still put off seeing their dentist.
“Sedation Dentistry Relieves Discomfort and Relaxes You.”
Why is this? For many this fear begins at an early age, due to some traumatic experience. As a result, visiting the dentist is avoided at all costs, and eventually dental health deteriorates. Inevitably, when the pain becomes so great, the individual gives in and finally schedules an appointment. But by that time, it’s not unusual that extensive dental work is required – requiring more time at the dentist, and much more expense.

How Does Sedation Dentistry Work?
In terms of medication, we prescribe an anxiolytic such as lorazepam (valium) to relax you during your appointment. We also use nitrous oxide (laughing gas) which can be used in combination with valium or by itself. We have also incorporated another less traditional feature to make your visit more relaxing – a personal TV in each operatory with up to date movies, sitcoms, and comedy specials. Music and humor adds that extra touch, and can make your visit that much more pleasant.
