An estimated 40 million Americans avoid dental care due to fear or anxiety. Our compassionate team wants to understand why you may feel this way. Knowing your concerns (such as a bad experience when you were younger) can guide our approach so you can get the treatment you need while staying comfortable.
Some patients prefer a distraction to get through cleanings or other care. With televisions mounted in our ceilings, you can focus on one of your favorite shows or movies instead. To help you relax, we offer three kinds of dental sedation:
Inhaled sedation (laughing gas) takes effect and wears off quickly. It’s also safe for children who may be nervous about a dental visit.
Oral sedation is delivered as a pill. It takes longer to take effect and to wear off, but it provides similar benefits.
IV sedation is the strongest option. This is excellent for people with severe anxiety or who may be undergoing longer procedures.
Sedation can block you from feeling pain, and in many cases, it can keep you from remembering specifics of your care (which many patients say is their favorite benefit). If you have questions about these options, please ask. We will be happy to answer your questions.
Your oral health and your comfort are top priorities for us. We know that relieving dental anxiety can go a long way toward improving your oral health. In Boise, ID, visit Times Square Dental to ease back into a dental chair. Call 208-343-1981 or contact us online to take your first step.
