Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry works great for those who suffer from dental anxiety. You simply take a pill prior to treatment and then relax throughout your dental appointment. Dental anesthetics are more effective when the body is relaxed and you feeling more at ease during treatment.

Caring for More than Just Your Teeth and Gums

At Healthy Smiles Dental, we care about you as a person. We care about your fears and anxieties, and we want to give you an enjoyable dental experience.

If you tend to feel anxious when you schedule a dental appointment, confide your fears in our team. We understand these fears and we know how to work with them. It is entirely possible to feel comfortable in the dental chair.

Causes of Dental Anxiety

Dental anxiety is surprisingly common. Some of the factors that may cause dental fears include:

  • A poor dental experience in the past
  • Sensitive teeth
  • A strong gag reflex

Some patients have postponed needed dental work because of their dental phobia. There is no judgment at Healthy Smiles Dental. We want to work with you to get your oral health back on track.

No More Delaying Dental Visits!

As you know, the sooner you address dental problems, the better off you will be! Avoid discomfort and pricey dental procedures by keeping up with your oral health needs.

Whether or not you have been delaying your dental visits, we can help you regain total health with sedation dentistry. Dental sedation will greatly increase your tolerance and allow us to perform more than one treatment at a time. Your visit will feel short, and you will leave feeling like you had a nice nap.

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

Patients who choose sedation dentistry can enjoy benefits like:

  • The ability to complete more dental procedures in one visit
  • Relief from stress and anxiety
  • A more comfortable and pain-free experience in the dental chair
  • Reduced gag reflex
  • Minimized memory of sights, smells, and sounds of the dental chair
  • Complete safety during the procedure

Patients remain conscious during their procedure but in a state of total relaxation.

Oral Conscious Sedation at Healthy Smiles Dental

If you believe you may be a candidate for sedation dentistry, don’t hesitate to ask our team. Dr. Thiessen can prescribe an oral sedative to be taken shortly before your dental treatment. Be sure to arrange for someone to drive you to and from your appointment.
