If you get an anxious feeling when someone mentions visiting a dental office, you may need some additional assistance before feeling comfortable in a dental chair. At Dental Expressions, one of our highest priorities is making sure that all patients that step in our office receive the health care they deserve in a relaxed, comfortable environment. That’s why we proudly offer sedation dentistry. By visiting an office that’s equipped with a sedation dentist in Kaukauna, you can be confident and trust that our experts will make each appointment a pleasant experience.
What sedation options are available at Dental Expressions?
Both Dr. Robert and Heather Heil—along with the rest of our dental team—truly want each dental experience to leave a positive impact. We work diligently to make sure each patient is relaxed, free of pain, and have pleasant appointments so that they’re more likely to visit the dentist for preventive care rather than only visiting when they absolutely have to. For that reason, we offer two types of sedation for suitable candidates. Take advantage of our expertise and advances in modern medicine with our two sedation options: nitrous oxide sedation and oral conscious sedation.
Nitrous Oxide—better known as laughing gas—is a lighter form of sedation. This is sedative is great for all ages, even the little ones in your family. Our patients are safely administered the sedative through a comfortably fitting face mask by one of our dental professionals. Then, either of our dentists will be able to perform the dental work each patient needs while they’re in a relaxed state. Nitrous Oxide is so mild that we allow our patients to drive home after their dental appointment. It’s truly one of the best options for both the patient and the dentist to work quickly and calmly.
Oral conscious sedation
Oral sedation is usually best for patients needing multiple treatments during a single dental appointment. Oral sedation relieves anxiety with a safe, doctor-prescribed sedative. This helps patients to deeply relax. Your sedation dentist in Kaukauna can determine the correct dosage when you communicate with him openly about your particular level of anxiety during your initial consultation. This also determines your level of consciousness during the appointment. In some cases, patients become so relaxed that they gently drift off into a restful sleep during their procedure. After their appointment, patients tend to recall little to nothing about their dental procedure.
Am I a good candidate for sedation dentistry?
Sedation dentistry is great for patients with dental anxiety or severe dental phobia. Just because you have a fear of visiting the dentist doesn’t mean that your smile can will withstand the neglect. Whether younger or older patients are afraid to sit in the dental chair, we can provide the appropriate sedative to help any patient relax. Sedation is also a viable option for patients with disabilities or special needs that may interfere with their dental work. You may also want to consider visiting Dental Expressions for sedation dentistry if:
- You have a low pain threshold and extensive dental work.
- Can’t sit still in the dentist’s chair.
- Have very sensitive teeth and gums.
- Have a bad gag reflex.
- Need multiple dental treatments to be completed.
