If you haven’t gone to a dentist for years because just the thought fills you with anxiety, you’re not alone. There are millions of Americans who have never seen a dentist because they’re too afraid. The good news is that sedation techniques while in the dental chair have allowed many people to get the treatment they need.
If you’re searching for a dental practice that gives equal priority to your comfort as much as to your oral health, Capitol Smiles offers the best of both worlds. Our extremely skilled dentist provides a variety of vastly effective calming methods as well as the most up-to-date technology, materials and procedures. Everyone in our office—from the front desk to the support staff to the dentist—creates a welcoming environment for all who step through our doors.
If you avoid dental care because of phobias, fears or misconceptions about treatments, dental sedation may be right up your alley. Before your initial visit, we will scrupulously review your medical history to make sure that the administration will be a good fit. Your sedation is always closely monitored by our certified professional, and it’s a highly effective method for alleviating angst and making patients feel more comfortable during treatment.
Our office offers the options of nitrous oxide (laughing gas), oral sedatives and IV (intravenous) sedation. You will get a deep sense of calm, and your time in the dental chair will seem like only minutes. Throughout your course of care, you’ll be able to respond to verbal cues from our team while feeling completely unaffected the treatment itself. Our sedation techniques are designed to take the edge off your fears, and to help you feel relaxed and ease. You needn’t let anxiety get in the way of maintaining healthy and beautiful teeth!
