Sedation dentistry is often requested by patients who are undergoing treatment. A large number of the population suffers from dental phobia, which makes the thought of going to the dentist a nightmarish scenario. Bear Brook Dental Care does a lot of work surrounding dental phobias and other barriers to provide excellence in dentistry. We are happy to provide our patients with sedation dentistry as part of our drive toward providing treatment to all.
IV Sedation and Oral Conscious Sedation
IV sedation is a great option to help you get through your fear of the dentist’s chair. The sedative is injected directly into the vein and will help you relax during treatment. Many dental phobias are reinforced by bad experiences during treatment. IV sedation helps with nerves and creates a more positive association with treatment.
Oral conscious sedation involves taking medications that help you relax during treatment. This is often a more suitable option for patients who do not like needles or masks around their face. All sedations are provided by a qualified practitioner, so patients are always safe before and during treatment. Bear Brook Dental Care provides excellence in sedation dentistry to ensure that our patients can receive dental care treatments in comfort.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Laughing gas is probably the most recognizable method of sedation dentistry. Nitrous oxide is given in controlled amounts to help patients relax during treatment. In many cases, patients report not remembering anything about treatment. When receiving any sedation dentistry method, consult with Bear Brook Dental Care for advice on getting to and from your appointment.
