Does the idea of going to the dentist fill you with fear and send chills down your spine? If the answer is yes, then you are not alone. Thousands of Americans feel an overbearing sense of dread when they make a dental appointment. The thought of having strange tools clean their teeth and gums is enough to cause an incredible amount of anxiety and stress. There is a solution for the anxiety and a way to relieve the stress. Cranbrook Dental Care, located in Bloomfield Hills, MI, offers methods of sedation, which provides a comfortable experience for those who usually experience fright.
A Relaxing Experience
Sedation dentistry is the best way to overcome any anxiety experienced during a dental appointment. Dr. Banda, a masterful dentist with years of experience, and his phenomenal team of seasoned experts, want to ensure that every patient, both new and returning, has a comfortable experience. We understand that our tools may seem alien and the procedures can induce stress, but our sedation techniques can remove the fear from the equation. We will simply give you a treatment to either relax your mind and body. In some cases, our sedation can cause patients to sleep, so they wake after the procedure is over. It makes the whole process very straightforward.
Types of Sedation
We offer two types of sedation. Both will alleviate anxiety, but we can apply one or the other, depending on a patient’s preferences. Our sedation types include the following:
- Oral Conscious Sedation: Our doctors can prescribe an anxiolytic, or anti-anxiety, medication. One to two hours before your dental appointment, you will take the pill, so its effects start to take hold before you enter our office. During the procedure, we will also apply nitrous oxide, increasing the effect of the medication. We suggest having someone drive you to and from the appointment if you undergo oral conscious sedation.
- IV Sedation: While this type is usually used for oral surgeries or longer procedures, this type of sedation can alleviate more severe cases of stress and anxiety. We will apply medication via an IV drip, which will cause a state of relaxation, or sleep, within minutes. Again, we suggest having a ride prepared for your appointment.
