At Vida Dental, we understand that sedation dentistry is not always about preventing patients from experiencing pain during treatment. Patients with dental phobias will feel much more relaxed when sedation is used during even minimally invasive treatments. With sedation, you will feel comfortable during treatment and will not feel any pain while you are in the dentist’s chair.
Our team will discuss your concerns with you and agree on the type of sedation dentistry that is best suited to you. As part of our drive to ensure all our patients receive regular checkups and treatments, we invite you to discuss any fears you may have about receiving dental treatments. We have a wealth of experiencing in helping patients overcome dental phobias or a severe gag reflex.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation will not put you to sleep, but it will help you relax during treatment. This type of sedation works well for patients who experience mild to moderate anxiety when visiting the dentist. You can speak to our team during your first visit about oral conscious sedation. We can provide you with all the information you need to decide if this sedation method will make your visit to the dentist a more comfortable experience.
Otherwise known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a gas that will make you drowsy during your treatment. Most patients report that they do not remember anything from their treatment. Psychological fears are largely based on triggers. By using nitrous oxide, Vida Dental can eliminate those triggers and make you feel much more confident about attending dental appointments.
