Do You Avoid the Dentist Office?

If you suffer from dental anxiety and fear, or even severe dental phobia, you are not alone. We understand the debilitating nature of this situation and invite you to experience the life-changing benefits of sedation dentistry in Cambridge and Easton, MD.

By incorporating sedation dentistry into our practice, we have been able to help countless patients find relief from their oral conditions and the dental anxiety or fear that once kept them from visiting the dentist. For many of our patients, sedation dentistry doesn’t just provide a deep level of calm and relaxation during their appointment, it helps them conquer their fears and take charge of their oral health!

We provide sedation dentistry most often for patients with dental anxiety, but its benefits go beyond helping fearful patients feel calm. Sedation dentistry can also help those with a sensitive gag reflect, hypersensitive teeth, or a difficulty sitting still for long periods of time. In addition, the deep level of relaxation and increased patient compliance helps us complete multiple procedures in a single appointment. For patients in any of these situations, we offer a comprehensive selection of sedation dentistry options and are certified to administer IV sedation.

The Benefits of IV Sedation Dentistry

Of all our sedation dentistry solutions, IV sedation is perhaps the most advantageous. IV sedation provides the deepest level of conscious relaxation, a “sleep” mode that allows patients to remain responsive but have little or no memory of the procedure. Because IV sedation is administered intravenously, it takes effect immediately and can be personalized throughout the appointment to an optimal level of comfort and relaxation for each individual patient. Due to the nature of its personalization, IV sedation is a predictable method that is safe and effective when administered by our certified dentist.

Local Anesthetic

Local anesthetic is a numbing agent used to block sensations of pain at the treatment site. It can be used alone or in conjunction with other forms of sedation and commonly takes a few hours to wear off.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is taken in pill form a few hours prior to the appointment. It aids in relaxation and pain management for patients with moderate dental anxiety.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas,” is administered through a mask worn over the nose, putting patients in a euphoric state. This sedation has no side effects.

General Anesthetic

General anesthetic is available for the most severe dental phobias or extensive surgical procedures. Patients are completely unconscious during treatment.
