At John G. Fletcher, DMD, we keep pace with the most advanced approaches to patient care and comfort. We strive to make dental visits both stress-free and better suited to meet your specific lifestyle and needs. For patients who experience significant dental anxiety, we offer options in dental sedation to help mitigate any anxiety or discomfort a patient may experience throughout the course of care. With the compassionate, gentle treatment of a 85282 sedation dentist, patients can maintain excellent oral health without any added stress or delay.
If you struggle with dental anxiety, just the thought of visiting the dentist can cause intense negative feelings. Dental anxiety can make it difficult to keep up with preventive checkups as well as seek care when you need it most. This hesitation can be so significant as to take a toll on both your oral health and overall wellbeing. As a 85282 sedation dentist, we recognize that every patient is unique and for some people the mere thought of sitting in the dental chair is immensely challenging. Depending on a patients needs and preferences, we offer two methods of conscious sedation. Nitrous oxide sedation, also called laughing gas, is administered through a mask, worn over your nose, helping you feel calm throughout treatment and wearing off quickly once treatment is complete. Oral sedation involves taking a prescription medication before your appointment, which helps you relax by the time treatment begins. With oral sedation you will need an escort to accompany you home after treatment. Both forms of sedation alleviate worry and discomfort, can make a lengthy procedure feel like its over in just minutes and help eliminate negative associations with the dentist’s chair. A positive experience with sedation dentistry can make your next visit to the dentist much easier.
There is no reason to let dental anxiety get in the way of receiving the quality dental care you deserve. At John G. Fletcher, DMD, our 85282 sedation dentist tailors treatment to accommodate your individual needs. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
