If you’re among the many Americans who are terrified of the dental chair, we want you to know there is a solution that could help you feel comfortable with dental treatment.
Some dentists practice what is known as sedation dentistry. Each sedation dentist varies in which services they offer. It could be as limited as just using nitrous oxide to relax you, or as deep as IV sedation.
Another popular option is oral conscious sedation. With this you’ll take a pill shortly before your appointment. You’ll still have all your reflexes, but you will need someone to drive you too and from your appointment. Many patient’s are so relaxed they don’t even remember their appointment.
