Yes! We understand that some of our patients have fear and anxiety related to the dentist, and we want to make sure that they have access to high quality dental care just like everybody else. In addition to basic relaxation options such as heated massage chairs and televisions to help distract you, Dr. Delwiche is skilled in the use of both nitrous oxide and oral sedation.
Sedation dentistry is an excellent choice if you suffer from dental anxiety. You will remain conscious during the entire procedure; the gentle sedation options we offer simply relax you and make even long procedures seem shorter. You will feel very relaxed and calm and may not even remember the procedures afterwards but will be fully awake and able to communicate with the staff if you need to.
Dr. Delwiche will work with you to decide what sedation techniques will work best for you. We can even use a combination of oral sedation and nitrous oxide if necessary. Remember, oral sedation will leave you groggy for a while after your appointment, and you will need transportation to and from our office.
To find out if sedation dentistry is right for you, please don't hesitate to give us a call!
