If the thought of going to the dentist has ever made you nervous, you are not alone. Dental anxiety is a common problem for many people, and can prevent them from getting the dental care they need. If you suffer from dental anxiety, we are here to help.
We want every one of our patients to feel relaxed and secure during their dental visits, so we are happy to provide sedation dentistry at our Mesa office.
Sedation is meant to help you overcome nervousness and anxiety you may experience during dental treatments. With dental sedation, we can help you have a pleasant visit and receive the quality care you need.
We offer three different types of proven and safe dental sedation to our patients:
Oral conscious sedation | If you choose oral conscious sedation, our team will give you a special sedative pill and provide you instructions for when you need to take it prior to your treatment. Oral conscious sedation is a fantastic way to feel more relaxed and more comfortable during a dental treatment.
Nitrous oxide | Nitrous oxide is the most popular form of sedation dentistry. We will deliver a relaxing dose of nitrous oxide (commonly known as laughing gas) through a special air delivery system to help our patients feel relaxed and at ease during their treatment.
IV sedation | IV sedation is administered intravenously into your blood stream, inducing a sense of deep relaxation and calm. This method is particularly helpful during longer or more involved dental procedures.
It is our hope that with the help of dental sedation, we can provide the fear-free dental treatments you require. Our team is skilled in administering dental sedation, and we’ll do our very best to make sure you are comfortable and at ease during your visit.
