Are you nervous about visiting your dentist in Ajax?
Dr. Patel and his team make patient comfort one of their priorities. For those who have high levels of anxiety associated with dental visits, Dr. Patel in Ajax offers sedation dentistry (laughing gas and moderate oral sedation) to patients who feel a sedative is needed to help them receive their dental care. Dr. Patel has success in helping once-fearful dental patients achieve healthy, confident smiles while overcoming their fear of dentistry.
Smiles by Dr. Patel in Ajax offers:
- Laughing gas administration using a nose hood: Laughing gas is an inhaled gas that is available to anxious patients. This sedation is administered to relax the patient before dental work starts. It helps put patients at ease and provides stress-free dental treatments. The level of sedation attained by the use of laughing gas is minimal. Thus, patients can drive themselves home after the treatment as recovery is instant.
- Oral Sedation: For patients who prefer a sedative that creates relaxation, oral sedation is an effective relaxation option in the form of a pill. This allows patients to relax before and throughout treatment while providing a quick recovery. Oral sedation also eliminates most memory of the procedure. Patients on oral sedation are closely monitored by Dr. Patel, his trained team members, and the safety equipment used during the procedure.
If you have dental fear or anxiety, you should share your concerns with Dr. Patel. You’ll be treated with the utmost respect and compassion and given options that are right for you.
