Fear and anxiety can be a common barrier for many patients getting the care they need. Here at Tomasik Family Dental we want you to fear no more!
In addition to other comfort services, through extensive training, we are able to offer the following sedation options:
- Nitrous Oxide: “Laughing Gas” as it is often called is great for nearly every patient looking to take the edge off and help pass the time. Many patients report feeling more relaxed and less fearful during their dental visit. The nitrous is out of your system very quickly at the end of the appointment so most adult patients are able to drive themselves home as well. It is a very safe option for kids as well- combined with watching cartoons on our TVs can really set them at ease.
- Oral Sedation: We can prescribe you a pill to take before your dental appointment for a slightly deeper level of sedation. This is a very safe option for moderately anxious patients.
- Moderate (IV) Sedation: If you are needing dental work done and have moderate to severe levels of anxiety this may be the perfect option for you. This is considered ‘conscious’ sedation but most patients have no memory of the treatment being performed. This is also ideal for longer or surgical procedures (implants, wisdom teeth extraction).
- General Anesthesia: We work with board certified anesthesiologists to administer general anesthesia right in our office! This allows us to treat the most severely anxious children and adults safely and with maximum patient comfort. We have had patients describe it as ” falling asleep and waking up with all of their dental work all of a sudden done” Without this option, many of our patients have told us they would have never had their dental work done!
