While Dr. Her’s chairside manner and dedication to customer service is sure to make you feel confident about your care, sometimes it’s not enough to make completing treatment any less stressful. Regardless of how simple it may be, dental care can feel impossible to receive for those suffering from dental anxiety or fear. With the help of our multiple sedation methods, that becomes a worry of the past. Contact his office today to learn more about sedation dentistry!
If you suffer from moderate to severe levels of dental anxiety or feel extremely fearful every time you need to complete treatment, our oral conscious sedation may be the most ideal. This pill is taken orally hours before your visit, giving it time to take effect. By the time you arrive, you’ll be incredibly relaxed and ready to receive your care. Keep in mind that the effects of the sedative take time to wear off, which is why we request that you have a friend or family member drive you to and from the practice.
A more mild form of sedation, nitrous oxide is a gas that is inhaled through a nasal mask throughout treatment. Since the effects of the gas are fast-acting, you can simply show up to your appointment, receive sedation, then leave without having to worry about the side effects. Keep in mind that regardless of the type of sedation you receive, you’ll still be awake to let Dr. Her know about your current comfort levels.
