It’s not uncommon to feel nervous in the dentist’s chair. In fact, most patients have felt uneasy on some level during a dental visit. For some, however, an appointment is unpleasant and causes a great deal of anxiety and fear. Have you been putting off visiting the dentist due to stress or fear? Sedation dentistry may be the option for you. Dimension Dentistry is pleased to offer sedation dentistry options for anxious patients to help them get the dental care they need.
If you feel anxious about visiting the dentist, Nucalm may be what you need! Dimension Dentistry is pleased to provide this natural and drug-free option to anxious patients requiring a little more relaxation and calm at their dental appointment.
NuCalm is a safe, proven system aimed at quickly and effectively relaxing you, without using narcotics or controlled substances. NuCalm naturally brings your body to the first stage of sleep; you will feel the same way you feel just as you are about to fall asleep, and you will feel this way for your entire appointment.
NuCalm uses four components that work together to bring the body to a deep state of calm. Administered as soon as you sit in the dental chair, NuCalm takes about 3 minutes to administer and takes effect in 3-5 minutes.
If you feel anxious about visiting the dentist, nitrous oxide sedation might be the solution. This safe and effective agent offers light sedation to manage your pain and anxiety, allowing you to receive the treatment you may have been putting off.
Nitrous Oxide, commonly referred to as laughing gas, is light sedation administered by breathing in a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen. It is administered through the use of a small mask that fits over your nose. It is an effective means of managing pain and anxiety in dentistry. It helps patients remain relaxed and comfortable during dental treatment.
Oral sedation provides moderate sedation for anxious patients. It is administered in our office by taking medication placed under your tongue immediately before treatment. The amount of medication given will depend on your body mass, the dental procedure, the length of your appointment, and your comfort level. This medication is strong enough to make patients feel sleepy and relaxed, helping alleviate the stress and anxiety associated with undergoing dental work.
