Feeling anxious about going to the dentist? You’re not alone. Being afraid of the dentist can be embarrassing and painful. For some patients, this fear is so strong that they avoid dental procedures altogether. Here at Dynamic Dental Solutions, we want to make your dental experience as comfortable as possible. That’s why we offer two different sedation options for patients who need it. Read on to learn how dental sedation can help you stay calm during your procedure.
Who Uses Dental Sedation
Many different types of people get dental sedation. Both children and adults deal with dental anxiety, and there is a type of sedation for every age group. Sedation can also be used during a wide variety of procedures and there are different types of sedation available at different price points. Don’t ever feel embarrassed to ask for sedation!
Nitrous Oxide (also known as laughing gas) is the most common type of dental sedation. It’s used for both adults and children and is very safe. Because nitrous oxide wears off quickly, patients will be able to use this sedation during their dental procedure and still be able to drive themselves home.
We also offer Triazolam for oral conscious sedation. This sedative is usually used during oral surgery. If you are using this drug, you’ll need to bring someone to drive you home after your procedure. It’s still very safe, but it affects your body for a longer period of time than nitrous oxide does.
Don’t let fear keep you out of the dentist’s chair. Call Dynamic Dental Solutions today to talk about dental sedation for your next procedure.
