Sedation Dentistry Ann Arbor
Learn More About Sedation:
Many patients have had traumatic experiences in dentistry or have other anxieties about their treatment. At Everwell Dentistry, we strive to meet your individual comfort needs. For our patients with anxiety, sedation dentistry may be the answer. Sedation and anesthesia are critical components to many dental procedures and can help to relieve stress or anxiety about the appointment. We offer a few different sedation options, from nitrous oxide to oral sedatives. These have different effects and are applied separately depending on the situation.
Dental anxiety is so common that it has become a part of our popular culture. We are very understanding and compassionate when it comes to patients who have anxieties about their dental visit. Our goal is to provide our patients with a stress-free and comfortable dental visit. If you are worried or anxious about your upcoming dental visit, let us know in person or give us a call ahead of your procedure or appointment and let us know about your anxiety. We will do our very best to make sure that you receive the proper sedation to make your visit comfortable and stress-free.
Dental SedationNitrous oxide is a valuable sedation tool that allows us to offer our patients a needle-free sedation option. We simply place a mask over your nose and allow you to breathe a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen. This produces a calming effect that most people find enjoyable and relaxing.
If you suffer from pre-visit-anxiety, we can give you an oral sedative that you can take before your appointment, which will take the edge off of your visit from beginning to end. Both of these sedation options require that you bring a friend or family member to chauffeur you home following the appointment.
Is Sedation a Good Idea?Sedation should be considered a tool that helps your overall oral hygiene and health. If you are too worried about your dental appointment and you end up not visiting our office because of it, that hurts your overall oral hygiene. Dental sedation can help those who are too worried about going to the dentist, to have a productive dental visit or procedure, and that should be considered an overall win for your oral health.
Everyone knows that brushing and flossing every day is an important part of keeping your oral hygiene in tip-top condition. What many people tend to forget is that bi-annual dental visit is the other key ingredient to keeping your mouth in great shape. If fear or anxiety is stopping you from coming in for a dental check-up, make sure to ask us about our sedation options, and we will make sure that you have a comfortable experience.
