Feel more comfortable and less anxious during your procedure
Do you get anxious about going to the dentist? If you feel fearful or panicky when it’s time to undergo a dental procedure, talk to us about ways to make your visit more comfortable. Dr. Patrick Moriarty offers sedation dentistry so patients can feel more relaxed and get numb easily during dental treatment. We can add sedation to your treatment plan to make those visits more manageable and relatively pain-free.
Why sedation dentistry works
Imagine going to the dentist and not remembering any discomfort, pain and time in the dental chair. That’s what our patients experience with sedation dentistry, a convenient way to minimize fear and anxiety associated with the entire dental experience. We offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oral sedation at our practice. Nitrous oxide allows us to control the depth of sedation and is well-suited for more complex procedures, such as dental implants or gum disease treatment. Oral sedation may be the best way to relieve dental anxiety before a basic procedure.
Benefits of sedation dentistry
Dr. Moriarty is able to provide a variety of dental treatments safely with sedation dentistry. Patients can look forward to the following benefits as a result:
- Amnesia after dental visit
- No sense of smell or taste during treatment
- No anxiety before and during treatment
- No recollection of when sedation was administered
- Minimal pain and discomfort during and after the visit
- No side effects
Sedation dentistry is ideal for patients who usually have a hard time getting numb and feel anxious about the pain they might experience during treatment. It is also valuable to patients who may have been delaying dental treatment because of fear or dental anxiety. Sedation dentistry options allow us to provide dental care to everybody that needs it.
