Oral Conscious Dental Sedation
If you experience moderate to severe levels of anxiety while visiting the dentist, oral conscious sedation can make it significantly easier to get into a comfortable state of mind. Oral conscious sedation is administered through prescribed medication, typically taken several hours prior to your appointment. For this reason, it’s necessary that you have a friend or family member drive you to and from our dental office. Most people don’t even remember their treatment by the time they finish because they achieve such a deep state of relaxation.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry
Those with mild levels of anxiety will find nitrous oxide, also known as “laughing gas,” to be an ideal option for treatment. Administered through a nasal mask, nitrous oxide makes you feel incredibly relaxed in a very short period of time while still remaining awake and aware of what’s going on around you. Once your treatment is complete, the result will wear off just as quickly as Dr. Giron provided it. This makes it easy to resume your normal routine without any inconvenient downtime!
It may sound surprising coming from a dental office, but most patients who come to our dental office say that they feel like they’re taking a break from their day! This is because ABQ Wholistic Dentistry puts comfort as a higher priority than most other dental office. During your treatment, we can provide you neck pillows, blankets, and even aromatherapy to make your experience all the more relaxing. Routine dental care is necessary, but comfort shouldn’t be a trade-off!
