Sedation Dentistry An Overview
Drs. Carole and Robin Thoman welcome patients who have been avoiding the dentist and offer personalized care in a compassionate environment. We take the time to speak with you and understand your concerns and to educate you on all aspects of recommended dental care. For many fearful patients, the chance to discuss previous bad experiences at the dentist or to learn more about their dental care can alleviate feelings of stress. We strive to help our patients develop confidence in their smile as well as their ability to keep it healthy through good oral hygiene and routine dental care.
Sedation Dentistry: What are the benefits?
Dental sedation can enable an anxious or fearful patient to receive the dental care they need without feeling stressed. Drs. Carole and Robin Thoman offer sedation dentistry and can work with you to determine the safest option for your needs. Dental sedation, also known as conscious sedation allows the patient to be alert and responsive while feeling somewhat euphoric and stress-free. Most patients do not remember the procedure afterward.
We offer oral sedation and Nitrous Oxide and will discuss your medical history prior to your appointment to ensure both safety and comfort during treatment. Dental sedation can often enable patients to receive multiple dental treatments during one visit, a benefit for those who suffer from dental anxiety and need to restore their dental health after a prolonged lack of dental care.
