Imagine yourself in a comfortable warm space, mind is at ease, body is loose and relaxed. You calmly close your eyes and enter a dream-like place where you feel safe and tranquil. In what seems like a blink of an eye, you wake with a sense of lightness. Your dentist smiles at you, pleased with the finished work. You take a deep breath and sit up with a refreshed feeling of accomplishment and clarity.
This certainly doesn’t seem like your average visit to the dentist, does it? Well that is probably because you are part of the 75% of the population who has some fear of going to the dentist. The anxiety most people feel about dental procedures is very understandable. The mouth is such a sensitive, personal place, and allowing someone in there with sharp tools seems like the last thing a rational person would want to do. We encourage our patients to share their thoughts with us in order to help address any specific needs or concerns.
Conscious oral sedation could be the perfect remedy for your fear of visiting the dentist. If you choose to take this route, simply arrive an hour or so before your scheduled appointment, swallow a small pill, then just sit back and relax.

Sedation may not be for everyone, but if you feel that your anxiety is stopping you from going to the dentist or proceeding with a procedure for any reason, big or small, then this may just be the miracle solution you have been waiting for. Through the combination of conscious oral sedation and our empathetic doctor, we can help make your next visit quite positive and peaceful, allowing you to walk out of the office with confidence and a healthy new smile!
