Don’t Dread Your Next Dental Visit
If you get nervous before a dental visit you’re not alone. Many people feel anxious even at the thought of the dentist. There are now several sedation methods that can be used to help make you feel more relaxed and make your visit far more comfortable.
The dentists at Phoenixville Dental will talk you through your options and help you make a decision about which sedation method is best for you. Our dentists are certified, practiced, and skilled at administering sedation. The treatment is safe and you will be closely monitored throughout the process. Like all medical procedures that require oral or IV sedation, it is required that you have a friend or family member transport you to and from your appointment.
How Sedation Works
At Phoenixville Dental, we use nitrous oxide (laughing gas) mixed with oxygen to help people who suffer from dental anxiety, have difficulty getting numb, or tend to have an extreme gag reflex. Nitrous oxide is a mild form of sedation that wears off within just a few minutes after stopping the flow of gas. You inhale the gas during treatment, feel more relaxed, and can still respond to verbal and physical stimulation.
The dentists at Phoenixville Dental want you to have a pleasant, relaxed experience. If you would like to get a better understanding of your sedation dentistry options, please call our office at (610) 933-3717 and we will be happy to answer your questions or to schedule an appointment.
