Do you feel uncomfortable at the idea of receiving dental work? For patients who are uneasy about receiving appropriate treatment, these feelings can make undergoing a procedure more difficult. If you feel this way, you may even delay care and cause existing problems to compound. Fortunately, your Newport Beach, CA dentist has experience working with patients who need more involved care to address their anxiety. We offer safe dental sedative options to keep you as comfortable and relaxed as possible. This means that you can receive treatment for your condition on time without feeling stress or discomfort. Through use of various sedatives, we will customize your relief to your specific situation.

When Anxiety Delays Dental Treatment

If you put off receiving restorative dental work due to fear about upcoming treatment, you risk further damage that you could otherwise prevent. A dental filling can treat most cavities when detected early, but as you delay treatment they can progress in size and require dental crowns. Eventually decay can become so severe it requires a full extraction of the tooth. Tell your dentist about your uneasy feelings so we may treat your condition on time and provide a conservative restorative solution.

Relieving The Stress Of Your Dental Treatment

You should feel comfortable at the dentist whether you receive a routine cleaning or a more involved oral health procedure. We know that certain patients experience anxiety about dentistry in general as well as specific more invasive procedures. By discussing your feelings with your dentist ahead of treatment, you allow us to explore sedative options to make you feel more at ease. Do not feel afraid to let us know about stressful experiences you have had in the past. Our personalized approach takes into account your treatment history to provide more positive future care.

Multiple Options For Safe Dental Sedation

With different forms of dental sedation, we can provide a customized level of support to match your specific needs. Nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, can help you undergo certain minor treatments. Often used with cosmetic dentistry, nitrous oxide can keep you calm during a dental crown or teeth whitening procedure. For more involved procedures, we can offer the use of a calming pill. Please note that oral sedation will require another person to drive you home while you recover from its effects. We can also explore intravenous sedation when the use of nitrous oxide or a calming pill is not enough to address your discomfort during treatment.
