Sedation During Smile Care

While there are important benefits to smile care, many people experience anxieties around treatment that make arranging care more difficult. At our Seattle, WA dentist’s office, we can help by providing sedation during smile care! With nitrous oxide and oral sedatives, we are able to help patients who need to book longer and more involved restorative services, and we can support those who experience serious discomfort during any kinds of appointments. Remember that delaying services can lead to more significant problems, which means you can find yourself in need of a more involved procedure by putting off the care that was initially recommended.

Has Anxiety Around Dental Work Impacted Your Life?

When anxieties around smile care influence your commitment to caring for your teeth, you can have a more difficult time protecting yourself against cavities, gum disease, and other issues. Even with a diligent smile care routine that you follow at home, you can miss problems in their early stages, which can lead to more significant troubles. If you already have symptoms of poor oral health, restorative dental work can be necessary in order to both put a stop to pain and prevent the issue from worsening! Fortunately, for patients who experience dental anxiety and those who want to remain comfortable during a more involved procedure, sedation options are available!

Reviewing Your Different Options For Sedation

Through the use of dental sedation, our practice is ready to help patients feel more comfortable in the course of treatment. You can have nitrous oxide administered throughout a service to keep you at ease. The effects of this gas can keep you in a conscious, relaxed state, and they can fade quickly enough to prevent issues from affecting you after your appointment. We can also recommend that you take an oral sedative. The stronger effect can be beneficial for those in need of more advanced care, as well as those who have higher levels of anxiety, but the lingering influence of this approach makes it necessary for patients to seek help securing a ride home.

The Trouble With Delaying Smile Care

The longer it takes you to do something about a potential problem, the more likely you are to experience complications that actually change the kind of treatment that you need. Remember that we can prioritize your comfort during restorative dental work, and we can also take care to preserve your appearance!
