Combat Your Fears With Sedation Dentistry
Are you tired of…
…not confronting the reality of your oral health situation?
…being haunted by bad dental experiences from the past?
…not having a dentist you can trust to put your fears to rest?
Then rest assured, at Historic Triangle Dental Care of Williamsburg, VA, we have a compassionate staff equipped with all the tools you will need to put your health back on the good road! This includes newly expanded sedation dentistry techniques.
Oral Exams And Professional Teeth Cleanings
Think about it: no matter how intense your oral hygiene practices are at home, a large part of the work it takes to keep your mouth fresh and disease-free is necessarily accomplished at the dentist’s office. It makes sense, really. This is because we have all the advanced technology and training at our disposal that can make your life easier! This is especially true of our new and improved location.
Even if you only come in once every six months, our professional cleaning techniques can take care of all of the tartar, plaque and bacteria that is positioned to cause trouble in your mouth.
Plus, when you are here for your thorough dental exam we can alert you to any emerging issues such as cancer, periodontal disease, and cavities.
That’s why coming to the dentist is a non-negotiable!
Still, we know that it is easier said than done when you are in the midst of dental anxiety or dental phobia. This is a dangerous condition that arises for a variety of reasons. We have found that it can actually do a lot of damage to your health if not addressed. This is why we offer sedation dentistry at Historic Triangle Dental Care.
Sedation Dentistry Will Make It Easy To Get Treatment
We do have some good news for you! You won’t have to despair any longer about needing treatment while lacking courage. In our practice, we provide patients who are suffering from mild to moderate fear of the dentist either nitrous oxide sedation or an oral conscious sedation treatment.
Nitrous oxide is familiar to many as laughing gas, and it is administered comfortably via a mask.
So, what does oral conscious sedation involve?
This is a prescription sedative that you can take about an hour before your dental appointment. Just so you know: this is a powerful pill, so you will want to recruit a friend or family member to deliver you to and from your procedure.
Your appropriately prescribed sedative will kick-in fast and will last for several hours making you feel totally at ease while you are visiting our practice. It is possible that you will float off to sleep, and even if you don’t sleep, you may have no memory of your dental treatments once they have been completed.
That doesn’t sound so bad, right?
Then, come see what sedation dentistry can do for you!
