Dental anxiety is a very common problem. Even people who work at dental offices experience dental phobia!
Cheryl is a Love Your Smile Today team member who worked with us for over a year before she built up the nerve to get in the chair for a dental cleaning. She’d had traumatic experiences in the past, and the team at Love Your Smile Today did a great job making her feel at home and putting her at ease.
Introducing Nitrous Oxide and Oral Conscious Sedation
There are two types of sedation used at Love Your Smile Today: Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas and Oral Conscious Sedation.
Sedation dentistry is popular because most sedatives can be taken by mouth, meaning no injections, no anxiety and no pain. Most sedatives allow the patient to stay awake during the procedure. Nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation, for example, only work to calm anxiety throughout the dental visit. Whatever the form of sedative, it is essential to be accompanied by a caregiver. Sometimes, Dr. Randy Singh, Dr. Marty Sekand, Dr. Ken Jandoo or Dr. Steven Schneider will prescribe sedatives to be provided the night before the dental visit, which means that driving to or from the appointment is not advisable. We invite you to join the millions of people just like you and experience Sedation Dentistry’s relaxed, easy state where dentistry can be accomplished in just a few visits, in the most comfortable way possible.
