Sedation Dentistry Provides Needed Relaxation
At Juno Beach Smiles, we want our patients to always feel relaxed and at ease when they come in for their cosmetic and restorative procedures. However, we know that isn’t always possible. Even when you’re spending time at a modern, welcoming office here by the ocean, impending dental work can still cause feelings of nervousness, anxiety, and even outright fear. Thankfully, Dr. Duane Keuning and Dr. Greg Riley offer some additional help for patients in need: sedation dentistry. These methods are designed to take the edge off your worry and help you reach a genuinely relaxed state of mind as we transform your smile and your wellbeing for the better.
Also known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is administered through a mask that fits over the nose. Within minutes, patients should begin to experience feelings of calm and comfort that last throughout their treatment. Many patients prefer this method because there’s virtually no downtime required – once the mask is removed, the effects wear off just as quickly as they began.
Oral Conscious Sedation
When undergoing oral conscious sedation, patients take a prescribed sedative before their appointment is set to begin. Once the effects have started, you should enter a deep state of relaxation; depending on the strength of the sedative, some patients may not even remember much about their appointment after it’s completed. You will need a trusted escort to accompany you both to and from our Juno Beach office.
Don’t let a fear of dental work hold you back from pursuing a better smile, better self-confidence, and the better life you wholeheartedly deserve. Here in Juno Beach, you’ll always be treated to quality care and plenty of personal, kind attention.
