Choose Relaxing Care
Before you begin your journey back to routine dental care, you should know that patience is important. Fear of the dentist doesn’t disappear in one appointment.
It’s also easier when you are working with our compassionate professionals who want to support you however we can.
We’ve also learned that addressing our patients’ physical comfort can help them relax mentally. That’s why we offer you a complimentary beverage when you come to our office. It’s why we have warm blankets and soft pillows.
It’s also the reason we have installed televisions. This way you can focus your attention on one of your favorite shows while we care for your smile.
As well as our comfort amenities work for many patients, we also know that some patients will need something more. Dental sedation has helped people get the oral care they need for more than 150 years. Our understanding of how to use the service has come a long way as part of modern dental care.
At our office in Huntsville, AL, we’ve observed the many benefits sedation can provide. It’s an excellent choice for anyone who:
- Worries that a treatment could be painful
- Gags easily
- Has problems getting numb
- Is undergoing oral surgery or other complex procedures
Sedation can allow you to experience pain-free and worry-free dental visits.
Inhaled sedation, a.k.a. laughing gas, is great for people who have mild anxiety. It works quickly, so you can get in and out of the chair to receive a cleaning or other care.
Oral conscious sedation is better for patients with moderate to severe anxiety. With this option, you take medication prior to your appointment. It helps you relax and remain calm to complete your treatment. You should arrange for someone else to bring you to and from your appointment if you choose oral sedation since its effects can last for a few hours.
Over the years, we’ve witnessed how our sedation options have allowed many individuals to improve and maintain their oral health. For some of them, sedation is part of their regular routine. For other patients, sedation is no longer needed because of the relationships they have built with our team.
