Sedation Dentistry in Reno, NV
Do You Suffer From Dental Anxiety or Dental Fear?
If you ever get nervous just thinking about going to the dentist, you’re not alone. Dental anxiety and fear of going to the dentist is very common. It has been estimated that 9% to 15% of Americans avoid seeing the dentist because of anxiety and fear. Some factors that contribute to this may that you’re scared the visit might hurt, you have medical conditions that cause more pain or discomfort, or you haven’t been in a while and not sure what the dentist will find.
Has dental anxiety made you put off getting the dental care you need for years? What if you could finally receive all of the treatment while sleeping- free of fear and pain?
What is Sedation Dentistry or Sleep Dentistry?
The medicine puts you in a light state of sedation and you sleep thru your dental appointment. Once you arrive, you are allowed to rest comfortably in a warm, quiet room under a cozy blanket. During the appointment, we will closely monitor you to ensure your safety.
Sedation dentistry allows complex dental treatments that often require six or more appointments to be done in as little as one visit.
All while you sleep.
When you awaken your dental treatment will be complete. For your safety, we require that you have someone to drive you to and from your appointment. They must stay in our office the entire time of your appointment.
