Millions of Americans put off their dental care out of fear or anxiety of visiting the dentist. Whether the fear is from a bad past experience or anxiety over a big upcoming treatment, putting off dental care is never a good idea. At Green Dentistry, Dr. Nammy Patel offers our patients soothing sedation dentistry in the comfort of a spa-like and friendly environment. Sedation dentistry eases patient fears by putting them into a calm and relaxed state. While under the effects of sedation dentistry, you are more easily able to receive your treatments and can often undergo multiple treatments or part of a smile makeover, in one sitting.
Patients frequently find that the comforts of sedation dentistry combined with our relaxing office environment and friendly doctor and staff make every visit to Green Dentistry an enjoyable one.
Local anesthesia helps block sensations of pain or discomfort during dental care. Injected at the site of treatment, local anesthetic will numb the surrounding area so patients only feel a mild pressure during treatment. Local anesthetic can be combined with other sedation techniques, like oral sedation dentistry for a calming and painless dental experience.
Administered via a mask worn during your treatments, nitrous oxide is an odorless gas that gives patients a relaxed feeling. Often called “laughing gas,” patients are quickly put under the effects of this sedation dentistry and once dental care is finished and the mask removed, the sedation effects dissipate. We can combine this sedation with local anesthetic for a calming and pain-free treatment plan.
Oral sedation is an advanced and highly effective form of sedation dentistry used to calm nerves and help patients receive the dental care they need. Taken as a pill before treatment, patients are put into a sleep-like state, but still able to respond to Dr. Patel. Many times, patients will have no memory of the treatment being performed after this sedation dentistry option. After treatment, patients will need a reliable source of transportation to take them home.
Our holistic approach to relieve anxiety through Dr. Patel’s calming behavior. Holistic iatrosedation is a sedation dentistry technique involving communication that exists between the patient and Dr. Patel. Through mannerisms, actions and voice, Dr. Patel can relax you without the need of medications.
