Overcome Dental Anxiety with Sedation Dentistry
Do you experience anxiety or fear when it comes to visiting the dentist? If you answered yes, you are not alone! An estimated 93 million Americans have some level of dental fear. For many, dental anxiety and fear are barriers to getting the proper oral care they need for healthy living and a confident smile. Some people are fearful due to traumatic childhood experiences, while others have extensive treatment or sensitive teeth, among other concerns. No matter what is holding you back, relaxing sedation dentistry can help! Dr. Rajiv Motwani offers the sedation dentistry solutions you need to actually enjoy your dental visits, and achieve your best smile yet.
Our Sedation Dentistry Services
Getting the care you need for a healthy, happy smile is life-changing. Our soothing sedation dentistry options will keep you relaxed and right at ease, throughout your entire procedure.
A clear, odorless gas, nitrous oxide is inhaled before and during your treatment. It brings a euphoric sense of calm and relaxation, and carries no aftereffects once the gas is stopped. Nitrous is ideal for mild dental anxiety or fear.
Ideal for more moderate dental anxiety or fear, oral sedation is a prescription sedative pill taken one hour prior to your appointment. The effects are a deeper level of relaxation, and may leave you with little-to-no memory of your procedure. A companion is needed to drive you to and from your visit when using oral sedation.
We use local anesthetic to numb treatment areas by blocking pain receptors, often in combination with sedation dentistry services. Committed to the highest standard of care, we also place local anesthetic through The Wand® Anesthesia for increased patient comfort. Numbness typically wears off after a few hours.
Discover The Wand® Anesthesia
The Wand Anesthesia is computer-assisted technology designed to improve the patient experience when receiving care under local anesthetic. Patients report this approach to be fast-acting and more comfortable than traditional delivery methods of numbing teeth and gums. This computerized equipment controls the amount of anesthetic delivered, giving just the right amount for pain-free care. With The Wand, Dr. Motwani and our dental hygienist can anesthetize a localized area, preventing non-treatment areas from being numb, like the tongue, lips and cheeks.
