Put Aside Your Dental Anxiety for Good

Oral sedation helps people with dental anxiety get the treatment they need

Find Courage in Sedation Dentistry

If you suffer from dental anxiety, you’re in good company; up to 20 percent of Americans avoid seeking dental care due to dental anxiety. This includes everything from a simple checkup to multiple tooth extractions or dental implant placement. While dental anxiety is common, it’s also very problematic, because putting off seeing a dental health professional to treat known or unknown conditions can make those conditions worse, eventually causing you more pain, and costing you more money and time in the chair. Sedation dentistry is the solution to your dilemma.

Oral Sedation

Oral Sedation

Depending upon how complex your procedure is, Dr. Blue will prescribe an oral sedative for you to take before your procedure. This will start calming you before you even arrive for your appointment. Because of the soothing effects of this form of sedation dentistry, you will need to have someone else take you to and from your appointment, as you will not be alert enough to safely drive a car. During your visit, you’ll remain awake though not fully lucid, and should be free of pain and fear while we complete your procedure. Local anesthetic will also be used.

Local Anesthetic

Local Anesthetic

Oral sedatives are one of two sedation dentistry options Dr. Blue offers. For less invasive procedures, he uses only a local anesthetic to numb the specific site in your mouth where the procedure is being performed. For this type of anesthetic, you’ll remain fully alert throughout your visit and will be able to operate a vehicle as usual.
