Are you or a family member nervous about going to the dentist, to the point where you’ll cancel an appointment? If so, you may be one of millions of Americans coping with dental anxiety. At Cary Family Dental, we offer sedation dentistry for those patients who need help getting through a procedure.
Sedation dentistry is more than a shot of novocaine. It is a means of relaxing you, and eliminating any dentist-associated stress.
Nitrous oxide, known commonly as laughing gas, may not make you laugh. But it will put you in a state of relaxation. It has been used in dentistry for more than one hundred years, is fast-acting, and has no side effects.
Oral sedation is another options. It has helped countless patients calmly undergo dental treatment. It involves taking a sedative about an hour before your procedure, and has been used safely in various forms since the 1800s. You’ll need to have a ride home afterward.
As of this year, Cary Family Dentistry is offering IV sedation. It involves a sedative that is administered intravenously. It won’t make you sleep, but will put you in a deep, dreamlike state. As with oral sedation, you’ll need someone to drive you home when your procedure is finished.
