People who suffer from dental anxiety may take comfort in the fact that they aren’t alone, and that sedation dentistry from Aspen Ridge Dental in Caspar WY can get them through their appointment.
As many as twenty percent of Americans cope with dental anxiety, and even phobia. It’s enough to make them cancel teeth cleaning and checkups, or prevent making an appointment in the first place.
This puts their dental health at serious risk. Even with regular brushing and flossing, it is essential to see the dentist twice a year. A toothbrush and floss simply can’t do it all.
At Aspen Ridge Dental, we want to help anxious patients overcome, or at least manage, their anxiety so they can withstand twice-yearly checkups and cleanings. Preventive dentistry is the most effective way to protect teeth and gums.
An option that has been the answer for millions is sedation dentistry. We provide several types. Nitrous oxide, commonly called laughing gas, has been used in dentistry for more than one hundred years, and is highly effective. It may not make you laugh, but it will put you at ease.
Oral conscious sedation is another option. You’ll take a sedative about an hour before your appointment. It is safe and effective and has virtually no side effects, and will relax you throughout your procedure.
Finally, we offer IV sedation. As the name says, it is administered intravenously and will make you unaware of what is going on around you.
With oral conscious sedation and IV sedation, you’ll need a ride home afterward.
If you haven’t had a dental exam lately due to dental anxiety, please call Aspen Ridge Dental to schedule a consultation. We’ll see whether you’d a good fit with sedation dentistry. We also provide family and cosmetic dentistry.
