Sedation Dentistry in Prescott, AZ
Many people in the Prescott area avoid seeing a dentist due to anxiety or fear. Unfortunately, this means that too many people are avoiding general dentistry services that they require for a healthy mouth, and the cosmetic dentistry services they deserve to look and feel their best.
No matter what the source of your dental anxiety, we can help you feel comfortable and relaxed at our professional dental office so you can get the care you need. Contact us to learn how we can help you with these related concerns.
Dr. Jirsa, Dr. Walker, and Dr. Katseanes understand these fears. Our Prescott area sedation and periodontists offer compassionate care and work hard to help every patient feel relaxed and comfortable in our office. Still, some people cannot overcome the discomfort they feel when visiting a dentist. Because of this, we are pleased to offer the option for sedation dentistry, sometimes referred to as “sleep dentistry”, to help eliminate anxiety, and provide a comfortable and relaxing dental experience.
In addition to dental anxiety, people might benefit from sedation dentistry if they have:
- Difficulty getting numb
- A strong gag reflex
- Difficulty sitting still for procedures
- Soreness or stiffness during or after dental visits
These, along with other concerns, are usually related to dental anxiety, but may be independent. Sedation dentistry helps you have a comfortable and positive visit at our dental office.
Our experienced sedation dentists offer two of the most effective and proven safe methods of sedation:
This is done with a pill taken about an hour prior to your procedure. With oral sedation, you will remain awake, but feel completely at ease during your procedure. This option also reduces your gag reflex, making it ideal for patients who suffer from heightened sensitivity.
Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is an inhaling gas that produces feelings of relaxation and euphoria. Like oral sedation, nitrous oxide allows you to remain awake and able to respond to simple commands while reducing anxiety and discomfort. Unlike oral sedation, nitrous oxide works immediately, and wears off quickly, making it better for patients who need to return to work or a demanding family life shortly after their dental treatment.
