Experience our Gentle Approach to Dentistry with Sedation Dentistry
It’s been years since you last saw a dentist. Every time your dental appointment is due, you draw up a list of excuses just to avoid the appointment. You have neglected your dental health for so long that until recently, your toothache has become unbearable. Now you are seriously contemplating seeing a dentist, but you still have a bundle of nerves about it. Does that sound like you?
If you dread going to the dentist, you have dental anxiety like 9-15 % of Americans. Luckily, you don’t have to put off dental appointments again. At I-Rise Dental, we offer oral conscious sedation for a pleasant experience in our dental office.
Redefining dentistry with Oral Conscious Sedation
There are numerous sedation options for patients with fear of the dentist. Patients with mild anxiety can benefit from nitrous oxide (laughing) administered through a mask. Moreover, patients with severe dental phobia may need IV sedation, which sends them into a deep sleep.
At I-Rise Dental, Dr. Anu Mohan uses oral conscious sedation. This sedation involves taking a prescription pill an hour or so before your dental appointment. The level of sedation can be altered by varying the dosage. Either way, you will need to be picked by a pre-identified family member or friend, from our dental office after the treatment.
Oral sedation gives you a deep relaxation to allow the dentist to work on you effortlessly. While some patients usually nap, they are easily woken up with a slight nudge to respond to the dentist’s instructions. Furthermore, oral sedation makes you less aware of the passage of time. You can undergo long procedures like dental implants with ease..
Benefits of oral sedation
Painless dentistry helps in calming your nerves to help you get the dental care you deserve. We prefer oral sedation dentistry because it is:
- Easy to administer
- Suitable for patients who fear needles
- Versatile to use for different dental procedures
- Reduces chair fatigue for lengthy procedures
