Dental fear and anxiety can strike both children and adults of any age. However, this nervous feeling shouldn’t keep patients from getting their regular treatments with a quality dental staff. Patients in the areas of Longview, Texas and Hallsville, TX are encouraged to work with a practice that offers sedation options during treatment.
Many dental offices provide some sort of dental sedation for anxious patients during treatment. Dr. Clint Bruyere works with patients with mild to moderate anxieties by providing oral conscious sedation. Oral conscious sedation is achieved with a prescription sedative that is given to patients prior to their appointment. They are transported for their dental visit and arrive calm and relaxed. Patients can follow directions, speak with the dentist, and can ask and answer questions as they are fully conscious throughout their treatment. Once they arrive home and rest, they often awaken with little to no recollection of the appointment—but their dental work completed!
Oral conscious sedation is a popular choice for patients because it is:
With the use of oral conscious sedation, patients can have a variety of procedures performed. Oral conscious sedation can be used for a simple checkup with a physical examination, x-rays, and cleanings, or may be used when patients are undergoing more extensive procedures such as the placement of dental implants. Our staff does not judge. We know how difficult it can be for patients to overcome their fears of the dental chair. We encourage patients to ask about sedation solutions for their next visit.
