Comfort First Dentistry
The five most terrifying words in the English language should not be “You’re going to the dentist.” Still, as many as 75% of American adults suffer from some degree of dental fear. This fear can be severe enough to cause people to delay seeing the dentist, allowing a small problem time to swell into a much bigger problem. Of course, having bigger problems makes a dental visit more unpleasant, feeding the cycle of fear and avoidance.
Sit back & relax
If you are one of the millions of Americans who suffer from fear of visiting the dentist you don’t have to suffer or forgo dental visits anymore. Comfort First dentistry allows patients who are nervous, uncomfortable, or unable to sit still during a dental cleaning or procedure to comfortably have those procedures done.
We provide light sedation with nitrous oxide to make you comfortable and make your experience of visiting the dentist as simple as taking a short nap. If needed, we can even give any shots of needed numbing or pain relief medication while you are sedated, making a fear of needles no reason to delay care.
For patients who have complicated medical conditions that make it difficult for them to sit still for a cleaning or for a filling, or when a young child needs extra attention to their teeth, sedation dentistry may be an option that allows these patients to get their work done sooner rather than later providing optimal results.
If you’re one of the many people who dread going to the dentist, sedation dentistry might be the solution you’ve been looking for. Sedation dentistry is a technique used by dentists to help patients feel relaxed and comfortable during dental procedures. It involves the use of medication to calm the nerves and reduce anxiety. This can make a huge difference for patients who experience dental anxiety, have a low pain threshold, or require lengthy procedures. Here are some of the benefits of sedation dentistry:
Improved comfort and relaxation
Sedation dentistry can help patients feel more relaxed and comfortable during dental procedures.
Patients who experience dental anxiety can benefit greatly from sedation dentistry, which can help calm their nerves and reduce anxiety levels.
Sedation dentistry is generally considered safe when administered by a qualified dentist.
Faster treatment times
Because patients are more relaxed and comfortable during sedation dentistry, procedures may be completed more quickly.
Sedation dentistry can help reduce pain levels during and after dental procedures, making them more tolerable for patients.
