Do you experience tension and anxiety when visiting the dentist? Are you worried about pain occurring during an upcoming or needed appointment? Riverside Dental Clinic offers sedation dentistry options to put your mind and body at ease.
Sedation services are given to patients who experience a great deal of anxiety or nervousness when coming to the dentist. We want you to be calm and comfortable so that you can get the dental care you need to stay healthy.
If you suffer from nervousness, we may prescribe oral sedation medication that can be taken prior to your dental procedure. This medication will make you feel more at ease during the procedure so you can remain comfortable.
With IV sedation, patients that suffer from a great deal of anxiety can feel completely at ease. This method is so effective that patients even may fall asleep. If the procedure requires general anaesthesia, IV sedation will be used to induce a peaceful pain-free sleep. When you wake up you might feel a bit groggy but you’ll have no memory of the procedure.
When nitrous is used, you’ll feel a great sense of calm and euphoria. Also known as “laughing gas”, this sedation option will make you feel happy and relaxed. You won’t notice any pain during the procedure, and effects of the gas wear off quickly afterwards.
No matter what sedation option you choose, make sure you have someone to drive you home after the procedure. Most sedation options will leave you too groggy afterwards to safely operate a car.
No need to feel anxious in our chairs! Call Riverside Dental Clinic today to discuss your sedation dentistry options.
