Help From our Sedation Dentist
Taking care of your oral health is extremely important, but our Windermere Dentistry team also understands that dental-related anxiety and fear can be powerful emotions. If you’re struggling to remain calm as you try and schedule your next appointment, talk to our staff members about the possibility of undergoing sedation. Sedation dentistry helps take the edge off negative emotions and creates a more relaxed atmosphere for patients in need. These techniques are very safe, and our highly experienced doctors will be sure to prioritize your comfort every step of the way. Contact our Windermere, FL location today to learn more!
- Nitrous Oxide – Also known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is a mild sedative that can help patients relax much more effectively during their appointment. The gas is administered through a mask that fits over the nose, and within a few minutes of breathing it in, the effects should take hold. Unlike other sedation techniques, patients will recover quickly from nitrous oxide and will not require an escort once they leave our practice.
- Oral Conscious Sedation – Like the name implies, oral conscious sedation involves a medication that’s prescribed to the patient before their scheduled appointment. After about 20 minutes, you should begin to feel extremely comfortable and at ease while still remaining conscious enough to respond to our team’s requests. Typically, we pair oral conscious sedation with nitrous oxide to create a stronger effect that leaves you completely calm as we improve your oral health and beauty.
