Overcome Your Dental Anxiety In Holly, Michigan

Hello and welcome to another February edition of the Holly Dental Care blog!

If you are…

…concerned about your oral health

…struggling with a fear of the dentist

…looking for a pain-free dental office in Holly, Michigan to help you get back on-track

Then we can help!

In our office, you will find a comfortable environment staffed by friendly professionals. Everyone here is both caring and compassionate. All we want to do is help you get back on the good road as soon as possible. As such, we will work to remove any obstacles that stand in your way. Because dental anxiety can be such a dangerous condition, we will also gladly provide sedation services to any guest that needs a little extra help relaxing during a procedure.

We can’t wait to see you in-person. Until then, here are some of our current sedation options:

Nitrous Oxide

To put you at ease, we will deliver nitrous oxide to you via a comfortable mask that rests over your nose. You will breathe normally throughout your procedure, and our Holly Dental Care team can regulate the amount of sedation you receive. This works great for anyone with mild anxiety and can be used in conjunction with any of our dental services. Just say N2O!

Oral Sedation

No two patients are ever alike. If you are experiencing a more severe case of dental anxiety, you probably won’t go to the dentist unless something is causing you so much pain that there just is no other option left. That is not the best plan for your continued well-being. That’s why, we want to try and make dental care more accessible by offering oral sedation.

So, what is it? Oral sedation is a prescription sedative that our team will give you, usually about an hour before your appointment is scheduled to take place. Just to put it in perspective, oral sedation is way more intense than nitrous oxide, and will put you at ease the entire time you are here.

You may not even remember why you were ever afraid, and you’ll definitely want to line someone to drive you home. Sounds great, right?

IV Sedation

We take your fears and preferences seriously. That’s why we want you to know that we can take sedation dentistry even further if you want us to. We think that your oral health is far too important not to try to find a way to deliver the care you need. It only makes sense that, if you have an intense aversion to the dentist, you are going to need a little more help letting down your guard. Don’t feel bad, we can give you what is known as IV sedation.

IV sedation is a very direct and powerful method of sedation, and its effects will be felt straightaway. For this technique, a sedative is delivered directly into your bloodstream by way of an intravenous injection. IV sedation will quickly make you feel very relaxed, and able to get through even our most intense procedures.

As such, you will rest easy throughout your time here and remember next to nothing thereafter.
