For people who have issues with dental anxiety, it can be hard to acknowledge warning signs of poor oral health, even when they start to intrude on their quality of life. At our Riverside, CA dentist’s office, we can actually make care easier for you to arrange if you have these feelings of unease. Sedation dentistry offers important relief for those patients who have discomfort at the thought of restorative dental work. In addition to making more involved procedures easier, we can work with you to feel more comfortable in the dentist’s chair in order to make preventive services easier to arrange.

Dental Anxiety Can Make It Harder For People To Arrange Important Services

Even if you think something might be seriously wrong with your oral health, it can be hard to reach out and let a dentist know about your concerns when you have dental anxiety. This is a real issue, one that our practice takes seriously, and we can help you manage your negative feelings around treatment. One way to do this is to provide sedation during your care. This can help those who have anxious feelings about dental work in general, but it can also be beneficial for those who need to undergo longer or more involved restorative dental procedures.

We Can Help You Manage Different Levels Of Unease During Treatment

Depending on the treatment you need, your past experience with care, and other factors that influence your comfort in the dentist’s chair, we can recommend different degrees of sedation. Nitrous oxide is a gas that we can administer continuously as you receive treatment. The effects of this gas wear off quickly, so it will be easier to return to your scheduled day. If you are someone who could benefit from something stronger, we can discuss the use of an oral sedative. This option offers a deeper sense of relaxation, but the lingering effects can make it necessary for you to arrange a ride to and from care.
