Clint Bruyere, DDS in Longview, Texas, is here to help you get the care you need if you have been putting off important dental appointments because of dental fear or anxiety. We offer sedation dentistry to help you sit through all your treatments while completely relaxed. Visiting our sedation dentist, Dr. Clint Bruyere, will change your past experiences and make you look forward to future visits.
Anxiety-free dentistry is for anyone who feels tense about visiting a dentist. Usually, most people develop a fear of the dentist because of negative dental experiences in the past. Furthermore, patients with a strong gag reflex or who don’t like the sound of drills and smells in the clinic can have dental anxiety. Whatever the source of your dental fear, sedation dentistry can improve your dental experience.
Dentists also recommend painless dentistry for patients with overly-sensitive teeth or who want multiple treatments done at once. Sedation dentistry can make anyone’s dental visit relaxed and stress-free. Try sedation dentistry, and your dental experience will never be the same.
Several sedation options exist, but our office offers oral conscious sedation. This treatment involves taking an oral pill about an hour before your dental procedure. We can adjust your dosage depending on the level of your anxiety. It would be best if you had an adult accompany you because the sedation effects alter your driving ability.
By the time you arrive for treatment, the pill’s effects will have started taking place. Once you sit in the dental chair, you will be awake but very relaxed. Some patients fall asleep, but a slight nudge is enough to awaken them to respond to the dentist’s instructions.
Oral conscious sedation is ideal for mild to moderate dental fear. It’s also suitable for lengthy procedures because patients rarely notice the passage of time.
If you cancel your last dental appointment because of dental fear, we urge you to dial (903) 708-6116 to book an appointment with Clint Bruyere, DDS. We combine a friendly environment with sedation dentistry for a relaxed dental treatment experience.
