We’ll Put Your Fears To Rest With Sedation Dentistry
Welcome to our Williamsburg, Virginia dentistry blog! Has it been awhile since you last darkened the door of a dentist’s office? That’s alright. Around here, we take dental anxiety seriously, but we won’t take your aversion to us personally!
You can rest assured that, at Historic Triangle Dental Care, we have a kind and caring staff that is equipped with the latest training and technology aimed at optimizing your oral health all through life. This includes our newly expanded sedation dentistry methods that can, quite literally, put your fears to rest.
Thorough Exams And Teeth Cleanings
Consider this: regardless of how awesome your oral hygiene practices are in between dental checkups, much of the effort it takes to keep your mouth clean and your smile looking great can only be completed at the dentist’s office.
It should come as no surprise that having a good dentist in your life is important. This is because we have all the latest and greatest tools at our disposal that can make you healthier and happier in the long run!
We think that you will be particularly impressed by our new and improved location!
In any event, our professional teeth cleaning techniques can eradicate any lingering food particles, tartar, plaque and bacteria that is waiting to cause problems in your mouth.
Moreover, when you get regular dental exams, we will be able to tip you off to any developing causes for concern such as cancer, gum disease, and tooth decay.
When things are detected early, it means easier (and less costly) treatments for you.
That said, we know that it is no easy task to sufficiently work through your dental anxiety or dental phobia long enough to pick up the phone and make an appointment.
Unaddressed fear of the dentist can cause real trouble for you over time. This is precisely why we offer sedation dentistry at Historic Triangle Dental Care. We think you will appreciate the options available to you.
Dental Sedation Makes Treatment More Accessible
With us on your side, you won’t have to worry any longer about needing dental treatment and not having the courage to act. We provide patients who are suffering from mild to moderate dental anxiety either nitrous oxide sedation, or an oral conscious sedation treatment.
Nitrous oxide is known to many as laughing gas, for its happiness-inducing qualities. It is administered comfortably via a mask, and can be adjusted to suit your needs over the course of any given procedure.
Oral conscious sedation is our way of kicking it up a notch, in terms of putting your fears to rest.
This method involves 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 line-up a friend to drive you to and from your procedure.
The good news is that your sedative will take hold quickly and the effects will last for several hours making you feel completely at ease while you are visiting our Williamsburg office. It is likely that you will drift off to sleep, but even if you don’t snooze through your procedure, you may have no memory whatsoever of your dental treatments once they are finished.
That sounds pretty good, right? Then, why not take the next step?
