At Wayne Dental Care, we understand the importance of helping patients feel relaxed and comfortable during dental procedures. Nearly 50% of the population feel nervous or uncomfortable with going to the dentist. Often, fearful patients forgo their semi-annual visits simply to avoid getting the dental care that can ultimately help them maintain a healthy smile.
The Sedation Experience
With Oral Conscious Sedation, a pill is taken one-hour before your appointment to help you relax or sleep through your visit. With this type of sedation, we can often complete all your dentistry in one visit. The pill stays in your system for several hours after the appointment, so there are few complaints of pain after procedures are completed.
How You May Feel
Most patients remember nothing about their treatment, but a few might remember some details from the end of the appointment when we are getting them ready to go home. If you opt for sedation, you will need someone to bring you to our office on the day of your sedation appointment AND take you home afterwards.
Wayne Dental Care offers oral sedation and nitrous oxide to alleviate any anxiety you may feel during your visit. If you feel either of these options are necessary for your dental care, contact our office to learn more about our sedation dentistry.
