Interested in anxiety-free dentistry? You are not alone. Somewhere between 30 and 40 million Americans stay away from the dentist because of the fear or anxiety they experience when they think about dental visits. We all know that visiting the dentist is crucial to promote your oral and overall health, keep you comfortable and pain-free, and keep your body functioning the way that it should. Even with this in mind, for some patients it seems impossible to walk into the dentist’s office, and cancelling appointments and avoiding cleanings and procedures can have adverse effects on their health.
At Synergy Dental Group, We Offer You the Opportunity to Experience Anxiety- Free Dentistry.
Some of our patients opt for sedation dentistry. We offer nitrous oxide to uneasy patients to ensure that their experience will be comfortable and anxiety free. Sedation dentistry is available to you for every kind of visit from cleanings to surgeries.
Our nitrous oxide sedation dentistry option can improve your visit to the dentist. Nitrous oxide, otherwise known as laughing gas, is administered to the patient through a mask placed over the nose. It is a perfectly safe method of sedation. The nitrous oxide is mixed with oxygen and then inhaled through the breathing mask. The patient remains conscious, but the nitrous oxide will put them in a state of total relaxation. You will feel calm throughout your visit, and the effects will wear off before you leave. Our sedation dentistry is always paired with local anesthesia to ensure that you do not experience any discomfort during our visit.
We offer local anesthesia to all of our patients to eliminate as much sensitivity as possible, but for those who need some extra assistance relaxing, sedation dentistry is available to you at Synergy Dental.
General anesthesia (being put to sleep) is available at Synergy Dental Group. If a patient elects to be put to sleep this is performed by a certified anesthesiologist.
