Relax Through Any Procedure With Wurtzel Family Sedation Dentistry
Do you ever feel anxious about visiting the dentist? Does the thought of a certain procedure cause you extra stress or concern? Do you ever wish there was an easier way to get through an appointment? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might be interested in sedation dentistry.
What is Sedation Dentistry?
At Wurtzel Family Dentistry, your comfort is our top priority. We offer sedation dentistry treatments to help patients who experience dental anxiety or stress. Sedation dentistry refers to a treatment that can be administered before your appointment begins. Sedation dentistry puts patients into a state of deep relaxation and comfort that lasts throughout their entire procedure.
Patients who participate in sedation dentistry are awake enough to answer questions, but find complete anxiety and stress relief. After a sedation dentistry appointment, the effects of the sedation will wear off and patients can continue with their day. At our practice we offer both oral conscious sedation and nitrous oxide.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous oxide sedation uses nitrous oxide gas to relax patients before a procedure begins. Nitrous oxide has been used as a form of dental sedation for decades. Patients who choose nitrous oxide sedation can feel confident that they are choosing a tried and true method that is completely safe and effective. Nitrous oxide wears off so quickly that patients can even drive themselves home.
Oral Conscious Sedation
If you’d like to achieve a slightly deeper level of sedation, you may be interested in oral conscious sedation. Oral conscious sedation utilizes a small pill, or tablet, that you will take prior to your dental appointment. Oral conscious sedation is another tried and true method that is completely safe and proven to work effectively. Patients love oral conscious sedation because it works well and is easy to administer. If you choose oral conscious sedation, you will need to find a loved one to drive you to and from the dental office.
