Sedation Dentistry at Mill Creek Family Dentistry Eases Fear and Anxiety By Brian Rutherford, DDS

added on: July 24, 2012

Are you afraid of going to the dentist? You’re not alone. But avoiding the dentist due to fear puts more than your teeth at risk. It puts your health at risk, too. Why? Because your oral health directly affects your overall health.

Why take risks? Sedation dentistry offered in my Mill Creek dental practice can ease your anxieties and help you have a healthy smile. To meet your needs, two treatment options are offered: Oral Conscious Sedation and Nitrous Oxide.

With Oral conscious sedation, you take a prescribed medication prior to your appointment. By the time you arrive at the office, you’ll feel completely relaxed and calm.

Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas) is administered when you get to the treatment room through a mask worn over your nose. In only a minute, you’ll be completely relaxed.

Both methods of sedation dentistry are safe, effective and ideal for the patient who:

• has anxiety or fear
• has difficulty getting numb
• has sensitive teeth
• has a sensitive gag reflex
• hates the sound of the drill or thought of needles
• needs several dental treatments completed in a short time.

If fear has kept you from the dentist, call my Mill Creek dental office and ask about sedation dentistry today. It will definitely change the way you feel about going to the dentist.
