Sedation Dentistry - Forget You Were Ever Here
Once you have experienced how easy and comfortable anxiety-free sedation dentistry is with Dr. Fernandez-Carol you’ll never be worried about going to the dentist again. Even if you have been avoiding the dentist for a long time and your mouth is in bad shape we promise no judgements or lectures. We will help you regain your dental health comfortably. One small pill helps you “snooze” through your dental appointment. You’ll be sedated just enough to not be aware of the treatment, but deeply relaxed. We offer music with noise-cancelling headphones, blankets and neck pillows. You bring your favorite music and relax during the procedure. You will wake up refreshed with little or no memory of the work accomplished.
Since you are so comfortable we can accomplish extensive amounts of dentistry at one sitting. You will not feel pain and you will not be unconscious, just deeply relaxed. It is very safe, no need for intravenous tubes or needles. No more hiding your smile or putting up with painful teeth or infections in your mouth. You will simply take a small pill prior to your treatment. Even people who are difficult to numb will find that problem eliminated by anxiety-free dentistry a method that will make you relax during treatment and help you gain confidence.
It really works! Sedation Dentistry is for anyone who has had a traumatic dental experience, experiences high fear of the dentist, complex dental problems, limited time or just prefers to be deeply relaxed during treatment. Many patients have put off their dental care for 5 or 10 years because of embarrassment and fear, others due to a lack of time. Now the opportunity is here to have work done comfortably, safely and painlessly. For anxious patients, oral anxiety-free dentistry is a miracle. Many patients say, “Anxiety-free dentistry changed my life”.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous Oxide is Fast Acting and Completely Safe and is one of several options available to significantly reduce your fears and discomfort. The level of sedation can be easily adjusted to custom fit each patient's needs. Breathing nitrous oxide will put a smile on your face from the moment you slip into the dentist's chair. For the apprehensive patient, nitrous oxide can be the key to an enjoyable, comfortable and anxiety-free dental experience. Nitrous oxide or "laughing gas" has a natural calming effect. It allows you to be awake but dreaming. It allows you to remain fully conscious and responsive at all times yet completely relaxed. It is excellent for kids. Many times we don't have to use anesthetic for small cavities, and if we only use nitrous oxide and no other sedative, you can drive home right after because the effect wears off within minutes.
Benefits of nitrous oxide (laughing gas):
- It's effective for mild to moderate anxiety
- Proven safety record
- Offers an analgesic (pain relieving) effect
- It's quick-acting, with few side effects
- You don’t need someone to escort you to and from the office
- You can return to normal activities immediately
- In many cases, you can get ALL of your dental work done in one visit
Relax completly with a euphoric sense of well-being while obtaining the perfect, beautiful smile you've always dreamed of. Nitrous oxide is best suited for cases of mild to moderate anxiety and is the most frequently used sedation method. Patients generally recover quickly, often with little memory of the procedure, only the incredible results.
