How Can Sedation Dentistry Help Me?
While the main purpose of sedation or comfort dentistry is to soothe dental anxiety, there are other purposes too! You might enjoy sedation dentistry if you experience:
- Frequent gagging at dental appointments.
- Severe tooth or gum sensitivity.
- Difficulty holding your tongue in place.
- Fear or anxiety surrounding dentists.
If any of these problems apply to you, let us know before your next appointment! We are always happy to help our patients feel comfortable in our Chaska office!
Dental Anxiety Treatment
Sedation dentistry can help you get through a single dental appointment, but it can also help you come to appreciate and even enjoy your visits with us!
Every time you take advantage of sedation dentistry at West Lakes Dentistry, you’ll be teaching your mind and body that our office is a safe place. The relaxed feeling you’ll get with our sedation options will allow you to get the care you need without stress.
Eventually, you’ll begin to associate our office with those feelings of relaxation and comfort and you won’t even need sedation dentistry anymore!
What Kind of Sedation Options Are There?
Talk with one of our dentists about your anxiety. We make it easy! You don’t even have to call, just fill out our contact form and we’ll get back to you soon! We’ll ask a few questions to get a better idea of your situation and prescribe one of two sedation options.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Do you struggle to even make it to your dental appointments without having a panic attack? Oral conscious sedation is perfect for you! This sedation option works in three simple steps:
- Before your appointment, you’ll take a prescription pill that will make you feel relaxed and a little sleepy.
- At your appointment, we’ll perform whatever treatment you need and you won’t feel a thing. You’ll be conscious enough to answer questions, but will be otherwise relaxed.
- After the appointment, you’ll be drowsy enough to need a ride home and likely won’t remember much of the appointment.
If you aim to get rid of your dental anxiety, nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is the way to go! Nitrous oxide is administered during your appointment through a nasal mask. It’s a gas that makes you feel comfortable, relaxed, and happy.
Once your appointment is over, we’ll remove the mask and you’ll be able to perk right up within a couple of minutes. You’ll even be able to drive yourself home!
Nitrous oxide can turn your dental experience into a positive one! Start training your brain to see dental visits in a positive light!
