mycharlestondentist.com in Charleston is here to help you overcome your dental anxiety and regain your confidence about visiting the dentist. With mycharlestondentist.com's personalized approach, we offer several ways to assist you in receiving treatment while remaining relaxed:
Intravenous (IV) Sedation
With IV Sedation, your appointment will be a dream and hours in the chair will feel like minutes!
This method of sedation is extremely effective for moderate to severe anxiety. An anti-anxiety medication is administered directly into your bloodstream through an intravenous line to achieve a state of “conscious sedation.” Although you will not be asleep, you will enjoy a heightened state of relaxation—and will have little memory of your procedure afterwards.
Safe, economical and convenient, this type of sedation delivers a more relaxed state than Nitrous Oxide.
Oral sedation is highly effective for mild to moderate anxiety. This type of sedation is administered with a prescribed pill by mouth about one hour before your appointment. This allows you a great state of relaxation, so that you can have a worry-free dental experience at mycharlestondentist.com in Charleston.
Nitrous Oxide-NO2 (Laughing Gas)
This method of anxiety-free dentistry allows you to relax during your treatment, and resume your normal activities after your appointment!
Nitrous oxide is best suited for cases of mild to moderate anxiety and is the most frequently used sedation method. Nitrous oxide is administered through a demand-valve inhaler over your nose that releases gas when you inhale through your nose. You will feel the effects within minutes and these effects are completely gone within minutes of the gas being turned off after your treatment.
During your visit at mycharlestondentist.com in Charleston, we can discuss these options with you and create your personalized treatment plan for a relaxing and worry free dental care experience.
Whether you require a single filling or are looking for a complete smile makeover, anxiety-free dentistry can help you achieve optimum dental health in the most comfortable way possible.
