Your sedation dentist in Annapolis, MD is very gentle but also understands dental phobia and anxiety. We never want to see you forego dental care for these reasons, which is why we offer sedation dentistry.
Sedation dentistry in our dental office relies on one or more options to produce the desired level of relaxation. Your dentist may opt for one option or two depending on your need.
Nitrous oxide is a calming gas administered through a nasal mask. It produces feelings of relaxation and disconnection. These effects wear off as soon as your sedation dentist in Annapolis, MD removes the mask, making it okay for you to drive home from your appointment safely.
Oral sedation is a pill you take approximately one hour before your dental procedure. It allows you to follow directions from your dentist, but you may forget the majority of your procedure. You will need a friend or family member to drive you to and from your dental appointment.
Your dentist can combine these methods for ultimate relaxation and treatment ease, but the first step is a chat—and possible medical history conversation—with your dentist. We want to make sure we choose the best option for you.
