No matter how gentle we try to be, we still encounter patients who are terrified of any kind of dental work. Even a simple checkup or the mention of a certain word can make some people tremble with fear. Anxiety or fear of the dentist should not keep you from receiving the care you need and deserve. Please call us to discuss your situation, or just arrange for a friendly and casual meeting to get to know our dentists with the understanding no work will be performed.
Oral hygiene and dental care are essential to your body's health. We want to ensure that you get the treatment you need. It is possible to come to these appointments without the anxiety you would normally feel during a visit.
Sedation is a safe, comfortable way to have your teeth cared for. With sedation dentistry, as it's commonly called, you won't feel any pain or discomfort. A significant number of patients do not even remember some or all of the treatment they've received! However, conscious sedation is not like hospital general anesthesia, which is extreme and unnecessary for our relatively non-invasive dental procedures.
We currently offer oral conscious sedation, in which you're given a pill or pills to take an hour before your appointment, depending on your level of anxiety. Throughout the entire procedure, your heart rate and oxygen levels and vital signs are carefully monitored. Sedation will allow you to comfortably make it through your dental appointment and achieve that new bright smile you have always wanted.
Dr. Jason is currently pursuing rigorous advanced training that will allow him to soon provide IV conscious sedation in office.
