One of the greatest advances in dental technology is undoubtedly the marvel of sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry gives you, the patient, the best possible experience no matter what the treatment is you need. Dental anxiety is real, and you are not alone! Many people fear having treatments done because they are anxious about any pain that might be involved. The good news is, sedation dentistry can give you a painless dental treatment so you can create the smile you have always wanted, and Dr. Anne Nicholas is proud to be able to provide sedation dentistry for our patients!
How Sedation Dentistry Helps You
-Painless dental care: From simple procedures to complex dental treatments, sedation dentistry can make you feel comfortable and relaxed.
-Shorter treatment time: Sedation dentistry can make you forget the dental instruments working in your mouth, including lessening the need for your gag reflex to kick in. Just relax in your chair and let us take care of your smile.
-Sedation level tailored to you: Whether you are having a root canal treatment done or just a routine dental cleaning and exam, you don’t have to worry about feeling a thing. Our oral sedation can keep you feeling relaxed, comfortable and anxiety-free if you are having a tooth extracted or a dental implant or dental filling placed. Whatever the level of sedation required, Dr. Nicholas and her experienced dental team of specialists in Palm Desert, CA, have you covered!
-A positive experience vs trauma: Some patients can feel traumatized by their dental treatment if they are allowed to feel pain. Sedation dentistry takes the pain away so your experience can be a positive one and you look forward to your next time in the chair, instead of dreading it and putting off much needed dental care. This means you can achieve your best oral health because you aren’t cutting corners when it comes to getting treatments done in a timely way. Remember, treating dental problems in their early stages is the most effective, least costly, and least invasive to treat!
Don’t Delay Needed Dental Treatment and Benefits
With Dr. Anne Nicholas, our gentle dentist, at the helm, you will never again need to fear having dental work done! Being properly sedated means you won’t even remember your time in the dental chair. You’ll be relaxed, comfortable and snoozing. You will arrive home with whoever brought you to your appointment so all you need to do is relax and leave Dr. Nicholas to her dental expertise while we restore your smile.
Another benefit to sedation dentistry is that you can have more work done in a shorter time (meaning fewer visits). Dr. Nicholas and our team can perform multiple treatments in just one or two visits to our dental office! You can have crowns replaced or dentures and bridges placed. Teeth can be whitened and gum issues resolved. Proper sedation means you can have needed dental work performed even if you are a typical busy person.
Dental work is crucial to ensure you can speak and chew your food with ease. Our conscious sedation method allows you to be conscious during your treatment while feeling relaxed and anxiety-free without the risks of general anesthesia. You simply take a pill one hour before your dental appointment. When you get here, we will escort you into the comfort room, cover you with a warm blanket, and monitor your vital signs and give you additional medication. Your treatment will begin when you are comfortable and relaxed. After your treatment is done, we will notify your designated driver to come and get you and take you home safely. Sidenote: you will want to make sure someone stays with you for the remainder of the day.
