I just met a nice lady. The first thing she said to me was “I am petrified to go to the dentist!” We always take time to get to know our patients before we get “clinical”. So we just sat and chatted for awhile. It is amazing what you can learn about people when you just take the time! I learned that she loved to fish (as I do!), and that she spends her free time caring for her 2 young grandchildren. Matter a fact, we just spent more time talking about fishing than we did dentistry!
Many millions of Americans are in the same situation as this patient. That is one of the reasons that we have been certified in Conscious Sedation. Amazing that you can take some medication right here in our office, and be totally relaxed through your dental procedure. This medication will not put you to sleep, but many people become som relaxed that they do sleep! People have been known to put off dental treatment for years because of a bad experience as a child. One of the great things about Conscious Sedation is that most times, the patient has little to no memory of the appointment. We often times can do alot of work in single appointments, and correct years of neglect. Whether it is performing a deep cleaning, cosmetic porcelain veneers, or a full mouth rehabilitation, often times Conscious Sedation is just the ticket! Ask us how it may be right for you!
