It’s impossible to maintain good oral health without seeing your dentist regularly. But we are mindful of the anxiety that many experience concerning dental appointments.
Whether it’s the fear of needles, the environment, or the tools that are used, there may be something that is deterring you from seeing your dentist.
At Seaport Family Dentistry, we believe that a dental appointment should be a non-stressful event for everyone! That’s why we make a continuous effort to be accommodating to all of our patients.
Removing the Fear from Dental Work
Both Dr. Tinsley and Dr. Derenzy offer sedation as an option for patients, and Dr. Tinsley also incorporates sedation with wisdom tooth extraction.
If you would rather relax and eliminate the pain and anxiety from your dental procedure, schedule an appointment with us today to determine whether sedation is the right option for you!
How Sedation Works
First, you will need to come in for an initial consultation with one of our doctors to discuss the best solution for you. Following this consultation, the doctor will give you a treatment plan, go over the cost of treatment, provide a folder for you to take home and have you fill out your health history.
Next, you will need to schedule a second appointment within a few days prior to your treatment. During this appointment, we will take your blood pressure, provide you with prescriptions for conscious sedation, and answer any questions you may have. Please note that the person responsible for driving you to and from treatment will need to be present at this appointment.
On the day of treatment, you will feel worry free. We will seat you and cover you with a comfy blanket. Our highly skilled assistants will get you comfortable and help you further relax with nitrous oxide.
Once your dental work is completed, you will be able to rest and recover – one step closer to your perfect smile!
