Obtain comfortable dental care without apprehension
Dental anxiety is a typical problem, and it should not be embarrassing. Our team at Foster Dental Care in Blue Springs, Missouri, enjoys assisting patients in overcoming their fears so that they can get the beautiful smiles they desire – and deserve. Our team will always spend time explaining the treatment and techniques to be used before your visit so you know exactly what to anticipate. However, we know that easing fears with sedation dentistry can help patients feel more comfortable obtaining the dental care they need. We are pleased to offer oral conscious sedation to ease your nervousness.
Understanding oral conscious sedation
Oral conscious sedation is a way to help you feel less anxious as you receive dental care. It is a medication obtained from the pharmacy before your dental visit and taken approximately one hour before arriving for your appointment. As the medication begins to take effect, you will start to relax. You may be aware of your surroundings, but the medication can make it difficult to remember anything that occurred at your appointment later. Although this is a safe medication, we encourage patients seeking this type of sedation to arrange transportation or have someone escort them home after their visit because they might not be able to drive themselves safely.
How sedation dentistry is used to complete necessary dental work
Receiving oral sedation dentistry will keep the patient calm and will help our team create beautiful smiles in the Blue Springs area! In fact, we work with many patients who have a complete smile makeover or full mouth reconstruction and maybe spend extended time in the dental chair for several procedures at once. Some patients who have more severe anxiety about visiting the dentist, even for simple cleaning and evaluation, may also benefit from sedation dentistry.
