A Comfort Menu
Not many dentist offices can offer you an actual comfort menu, but we have that available here at Holly Dental Care. Whatever you need to feel comfortable, we can probably provide it for you!
Many of our patients love having a comfortable neck pillow and a warm blanket. That simple comfort of being snuggled into the chair is enough to ease their tension! Others prefer a warm or cold beverage, and still others just want to tune out with music. We want you to feel at home so be sure to ask to see our comfort menu at your next appointment!
Levels of Sedation
Sedation is a great way to achieve a calm and comfortable experience at the dentist office. If the simple creature comforts like blankets and pillows aren’t enough, let’s try something a little stronger.
Ultimately, you need to be comfortable in the chair! If sedation is needed, we have no problem getting that taken care of for you. Let’s take a look at a few sedation options available for you.
You are most familiar with nitrous oxide or laughing gas. This is used in dental offices around the world as a simple and quick way to help someone relax. The patient is still completely conscious and aware but not focused on the procedure itself.
Nitrous oxide is perfect for a patient who has mild fear of the dentist or who is undergoing very minor treatment.
One of the sedation methods growing in popularity is oral conscious sedation. Patients love the ease with which they get sedation. All we do is prescribe a sedative for you to take before your appointment. You’ll have a friend drive you to the office, and you’ll come in already feeling relaxed!
Once you’re in the chair, you will feel at ease and may even fall asleep, but you will still be able to communicate with us as we complete your procedure. Oral conscious sedation is great for patients with moderate anxiety, but it is difficult to adjust once you’re in the chair.
IV sedation is rarely offered in general dental care offices, but we have achieved the extra licensing and certifications to make IV sedation a part of what we can do here at Holly Dental Care. IV sedation is reserved for patients with severe to extreme anxiety or those who are going to experience complex procedures.
IV sedation has great benefits for fearful patients, but we also like it because it is easier for us to adjust the sedation while you are undergoing treatment. This means that you’ll be kept completely comfortable throughout your entire procedure!
If you’re worried about being comfortable at your next dental appointment, give us a call! We can help ease your worries and explain your options.
