Dr. Nick Cost Talks about Relieving Dental Anxiety
Dental anxiety is a very real thing. I would estimate probably 80% of the people that walk through our front door have some form of dental anxiety. At our practice, we understand that. And we’re committed to offering the latest in sedation options to make sure that our patients have a comfortable experience. We offer laughing gas sedation and also oral conscious sedation in our practice.
And so, with laughing gas, you come in and put a little nose on, breathe a little air, and just feel super relaxed, and things go great. You can drive yourself to and from the appointment. With oral conscious sedation, you take a pill about an hour before you come. And you have…we can communicate and talk. You’re still awake for the procedure. However, what most patients love is the next day, you have little to no memory that you were even here.
So as long as you have somebody to bring you to your appointments, we can set you up with that. And it’s just a great way to get dentistry done. Patients that undergo sedation, they are… Patients who have dental anxiety, they wouldn’t have it any other way. You can get the smile you’ve always wanted in a very relaxing, comfortable way.
