Going to the dentist is a big source of stress and fear for many, many patients, and for some, this causes them to avoid routine dental care for years at a time! At South Windsor Dental, we completely feel for these patients, and to help them have the comfortable dental experience they deserve, we can utilize something called relaxation dentistry. With it, we can calm a patient’s nervous mind and protect them from discomfort at the same time, finally taking the worry and the dread out of their dental care.
With this technique, you’ll simply be prescribed a pill to take about an hour before your appointment so that by the time you reach the treatment chair, you will be completely physically and mentally relaxed. You will still be conscious for the entire appointment and able to respond to commands, but you’ll likely have little to no memory of it afterward. When the sedative finally wears off later in the day, it’ll feel like you’ve just woken up from a nice long nap.
Does going to the dentist make you nervous? If so, we’re here to help. Thanks to relaxation dentistry, we can make sure that your dental appointments are always calm, cool, and relaxed. To see how it could help at your next appointment, please contact us today.
