Patients in the 75605 zip code who are experiencing fears and anxieties associated with visiting their dentist are not alone. A large percentage of Americans, specifically adults, have dental anxieties that often keep them from getting the dental care they need to maintain healthy smiles. Dr. Clint Bruyere is one of many dentists in the area who provide a solution: sedation dentistry.
Sedation dentistry is a method of sedation that allows patients the ability to get through their dental appointment without the nervousness they once felt. Whether it’s from a negative past experience or a fear of pain and discomfort, patients can use oral conscious sedation to get over these problems and seek the assistance they need. Sedation dentistry can be used for simple examinations to complex dental treatments such as smile makeovers through our practice.
Our practice offers oral conscious sedation. This particular method of sedation requires patients to arrange transportation to and from their dental appointment. They take medication by mouth before their appointment so they arrive calm and relaxed. They are able to walk and talk, as they are completely conscious throughout the procedure. They can answer and ask questions and respond to requests by the dentist. Afterward, they rest off the medication at home and awaken with little to no recollection of the appointment.
Oral conscious sedation is readily available for adult patients who want to visit the dentist for appropriate dental work but are uneasy about sitting in the dental treatment and having another individual in their “personal space.” Oral conscious sedation eliminates pain and discomfort and can put patients at ease about having pertinent dental work done to repair and restore their smile, no matter how bad of shape it is in.
Dr. Clint Bruyere and his team are excited to offer sedation dentistry for patients who are ready to tackle their oral health and wellness. Contact his team today to book an appointment to consult with our dental professionals about sedation dentistry. We welcome new and existing patients into our state-of-the-art practice for the care and attention they need to smile with confidence and beauty once again!
