For many Oak Island and Bolivia residents, one thing stands in the way of a healthy, beautiful smile – fear of the dentist! Even routine cleanings can be scary for folks with dental phobia. However, at Coastal Cosmetic Family Dentistry we have made it our business to offer you the most comfortable dental experience possible, which is why Dr. Wilharm, Dr. Harrington, Dr. Miller, Dr. Hohl and Dr. Dobransky offer sedation dentistry services. There’s a lot of misinformation floating around, so here are the facts about sedation dentistry.
For millions of Americans, even the thought of visiting the dentist is terrifying. As a result, many people avoid dentists altogether and miss out on a healthy, happy smile. Sedation dentistry is the answer to dental anxiety, aimed at relaxing patients for a comfortable, enjoyable experience.
Sedation dentistry is generally intended for Oak Island and Bolivia residents whose fear of the dentist might prevent them getting the dental care they need. If you suffer from dental anxiety, sedation dentistry might be the perfect solution. It is also great for patients with high tolerances to anesthesia, soreness of the jaw, or strong gag reflexes.
Dr. Wilharm, Dr. Harrington, Dr. Miller, Dr. Hohl and Dr. Dobransky will give you medication before or during your procedure, such as anxiety pills or nitrous oxide (laughing gas). Whatever your preference, the sedatives will help melt away your fears and allow for a pleasant, relaxed experience. Just make sure you have someone to drive you home.
Sedation dentistry does not involve the use of general anesthesia, so you will not be put to sleep during your visit to the dentist. However, the methods and medications used often relax patients so much that they fall asleep on their own.
Many dentists offer sedation dentistry. The best way to find out is to call your dentist. Here at Coastal Cosmetic Family Dentistry, we are committed to providing every one of our patients with premium dental care and a comfortable experience. Dr. Wilharm, Dr. Harrington, Dr. Miller, Dr. Hohl and Dr. Dobransky offer the highest quality sedation dentistry services to make your visits as comfortable as possible.
