In some people, fear of the dentist is go great it can be classified as a phobia. Such people avoid the dentist outright. This seems logical enough: if there’s something you don’t like, don’t do it. The trouble is, it puts your dental health at risk.
At Distinctive Dental Services, patient comfort is our number one goal. Don’t let fear keep you from the dental health care you deserve. We have helped many nervous patients undergo treatment with no troubles.
How do we calm your fears and gain your trust?
During the initial exam and consultation, we explain the various options and the recommended treatment plan. We will answer all of your questions and take all the time you need.
This includes a discussion about pain control. We numb you before any procedure, of course. But sedation dentistry takes it to a higher level. We have two options:
- Nitrous oxide. Commonly known as laughing gas, nitrous has been used in dentistry for more than a centure. It is very effective, placing you in a relaxed, even euphoric state of mind. It works quickly and wears off quickly.
- Oral conscious sedation. This involves taking a prescribed sedative before your appointment. As the name implies, you’ll remain conscious. But you will be in a deeply relaxed state. Because of this, you will need someone to drive you to and from our office.
At Distinctive Dental Services in Lake Jackson, we use sedation dentistry with great success on patients who have always feared dentist appointments. We offer a wide range of general dentistry services. Schedule an appointment with us today.
