People often avoid dental work. We tend shy away from the potential for pain, and generally fear the unknown. Some even find dental treatments physically difficult to complete, as they suffer from severe muscle tension or an overactive gag reflex.
Fairchance Dental Arts will guide you through every step of this journey. Your dental process need not be a nerve-wracking mystery. To meet your needs, we not only answer every question you have about your treatment, but we offer sedation dentistry as a means of easing your anxiety.
What Does Sedation Dentistry Mean?
Sedation dentistry is one of the easiest and most effective ways to deal with many of the common causes of dental anxiety. Simply put, it is dental work done while you are medically relaxed.
You will not be unconscious. Sedation relaxes your muscle tension, but it does not put you out. Nor does it replace anesthetics and other necessary parts of the treatment. It simply makes the treatment easier for you.
Options We Offer
- While an IV sedative will take effect much more quickly than any other form, many people are too uncomfortable with needles for this to be viable in a dental setting. This makes oral sedation a great solution. It’s safe, it’s effective, and best of all, it’s completely needle-free.
- Inhalation sedation uses nitrous oxide, or laughing gas. It works much faster than an oral sedative, but also involves no needles.
Why Choose Sedation?
There are a number of advantages to sedation dentistry
Shortened chair time | Sedation allows dental work to be completed in fewer sessions. This is more efficient for us and more convenient for you.
The anxiolytic effect | An anxiolytic actively reduces anxiety. In fact, nitrous oxides has been used for this exact purpose since the late 1800s.
Speedy recovery time | The body is able to recover very efficiently from our sedative methods.You’ll even be able to drive yourself home from an appointment afterward.
