Patients who avoid scheduling dental visits because of anxiety may not be getting the care they need. Thankfully, with sedation dentistry, those who may have been too anxious or uncomfortable to sit through a dental procedure in the past can look forward to a pleasant visit to South Shore Dental. Using nitrous oxide, oral, or oral conscious sedation, patients can rest easy while Dr. Stutman delivers care that will improve the health of their smiles.
Different Levels of Sedation for Different Levels of Anxiety
Using oral medication, we can help patients with different levels of anxiety. For patients who want to be heavily sedated, we can prescribe a pill that will literally put them to sleep for their procedure.
For patients who are less anxious, oral conscious sedation allows them to relax without falling asleep. We can even supplement your oral conscious medication with nitrous oxide, to make your experience with us even more relaxing.
To prepare for your procedure, simply take your prescribed medication before showing up for your appointment. Then, once the medication has begun to relax you, we can begin. Because the effects of sedation dentistry are long-lasting, we can perform longer procedures, meaning less time away from your normal schedule.
