Our Team Helps Patients Relax for Their Dental Procedures With Sedation Solutions
- Posted on: Feb 14 2020
Dental anxiety impacts patients of all ages. However, thanks to sedation dentistry, many of these patients can have a more positive experience when they arrive at Deeter Dental. Bismarck and Garrison, ND area patients who are concerned about their next visit are welcome to speak to our team about sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry is the incorporation of sedation into a patient’s dental visit to help them feel relaxed and at ease during their entire appointment. Our practice offers sedation for adults to ensure they make their appointment and are able to obtain the necessary dental work they may need. Sedation can be used for extensive procedures or even simple cleanings based on the patient’s individual levels of anxiety.
Options for sedation
The team of Deeter Dental are pleased to offer two methods of sedation:
- Oral conscious sedation – using a prescription medication, patients can take a pill orally before they are transported to the dental office for their appointment. By the time they arrive, they are at ease and relaxed. Patients can answer questions and follow instructions even when under this medication. The patient is transported back home after their appointment to rest, and may awaken with little to no recollection of their visit at all!
- Nitrous oxide – another option available to our patients is that of nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide is a gas that is odorless and colorless. It can provide almost immediate relaxation when administered through the nose in the dental chair. Patients feel extremely relaxed while staying awake during their procedure. The dental team administers oxygen at the end of treatment to bring the patient back to their normal state of mind, allowing them to transport themselves home.
Keep your cool with sedation dentistry
At Deeter Dental, we want our patients to have options available to them when it comes to addressing their dental anxieties in the chair. With sedation, patients can have a positive experience at the dental office, not a negative one. Contact our team today to book a consultation visit with Drs. Terry, Matt, and Lucas Deeter and discuss sedation as an option for your next visit.
