We understand that not everyone loves to go to the dentist. We don’t take it personally, though! In fact, many Americans have a genuine fear of the dentist. They feel anxious and stressed at the thought of an upcoming appointment. Do you try to figure out a way to avoid your dental visit? Does the thought of visiting our office make your palms sweat? We care about your comfort and dental health and want you to know we have a solution that can make your next visit with us actually enjoyable. Would you like to know how?
At Star Dental, we help our anxious and stressed patients have a more relaxed and comfortable dental experience with the use of conscious sedation. We offer patients a small dose of sedatives that helps put them at ease and allows us to provide them with beneficial dental treatments.
You can benefit from conscious sedation if you:
- Had a bad dental experience in the past
- Are acutely anxious or fearful of having a dental treatment
- Have a strong gag reflex
- Can’t bear the sights, sounds or smells of a dental office
Conscious sedation is a safe and effective treatment that helps calm and relax you so that we can effectively provide you with dental care. You will be awake during your procedure and able to respond to our questions, but you won’t feel any pain or even remember your time in the chair. The sedative dose we administer meets your individual needs and will slowly fade away after we have completed the treatment. The great news is that you won’t be groggy afterward, but you will have healthier teeth and gums.
Sedation dentistry is a common treatment that is used by patients for all kinds of dental treatments. You don’t have to suffer with dental fear any longer. Please let us know if you think you would benefit from this treatment, or if you have any anxiety or fears when it comes to your dental visits. We are here to help you.
