Weninger Dentistry offers dentist sedation options to provide you with a relaxing and anxiety-free experience so you can receive the dental care you need. Our staff understands that fear of dental treatment is a serious concern. We work to alleviate patient anxiety using a caring and respectful approach to safe and effective dental sedation including conscious sedation dentistry.
- Oral Sedation Dentistry – this type of dentist sedation involves the use of nitrous oxide or oral medication to help control anxiety
- IV Sedation Dentistry – for this kind of dentist sedation the patient is given medications to control anxiety through an IV line, directly into the venous circulation
Though fear and anxiety are often thought to be the same, there is a distinct difference. Fear tends to be a short-lived phenomenon that is alleviated once the threat or danger is gone. Anxiety tends to be a more emotional response, learned from personal negative experiences or through the stories of others. Fear and anxiety cause the sympathetic nervous system to respond with the “Fight or Flight” reaction, leading to overwhelming apprehension. Dental sedation offers a medically-based way to deal with the very real problems of both fear and anxiety.
Whatever type of dental procedures you require, the Weninger team will help you determine your best dental sedation option for thorough treatment with little or no discomfort. We will guide you in selecting an affordable treatment plan that meets your goals for improved oral health, comfort, and appearance. Contact us today to set up an appointment.
