The Bearable Dentistry dentists want you to be comfortable in their chairs. They understand that some patients have a real fear or anxiety that is preventing them from going to the dentist. Bearable Dentistry offers an alternative to the anxious patient: Sedation Dentistry. Sometimes referred to as “sleep dentistry”, sedation dentistry may be appropriate for people who have a low pain threshold, trouble sitting still in the chair, extreme sensitivity, a severe gag reflex or just a large amount of dental work to complete in a short time period.
The dentist prescribes a medicine designed to help the patient relax during their dental treatment. There is a certain amount of risk with all medications so the dentist will review your health history and visit with you prior to your sedated visit.
Bearable Dentistry also offers all patients nitrous oxide (laughing gas). Use of nitrous oxide gas can help calm the nerves of many patients. Just ask your Bearable Dentistry dental assistant or hygienist if you think that nitrous oxide might be a good option for you.
