At Aspen Ridge Dental in Casper, we make a conscious effort to help our patients feel comfortable. If you’re among the many who are nervous about dental work, sedation dentistry can help.
Millions of people would rather do just about anything other than sit in a dentist’s chair for an hour or so, even for something as straightforward as a checkup. For some, the solution is to skip the dentist completely. This is a bad idea, though, because it puts your dental health at risk.
By now, there is well-established link between your dental health and your general health. Regular checkups not only keep your teeth and gums in good shape. They can reveal systemic health issues before they get serious.
Sedation dentistry can give you enough relaxation to sit through an appointment. We have three types:
- Nitrous Oxide. Nitrous is better known as laughing gas. It may or may not make you laugh, but it will relax you. It is safe, takes effect quickly, and wears off quickly.
- Oral conscious sedation. This involves taking a prescribed sedative an hour or so before the appointment. This too will put you in a deeply relaxed state. You are required to have someone will have to drive you to and from our office.
- IV Sedation. As the name suggests, this is administered intravenously. You won’t sleep with this on, either, but will be in a deeply relaxed state. You’ll need an escort for a ride here and back.
At Aspen Ridge Dental in Casper we want you to be comfortable, and sedation dentistry has provided that comfort for many patients. People in Riverton and Douglas have benefited from our complete family dentistry and other services. Schedule an appointment with us today!
