We recognize that one of the most common reasons people avoid dental visits is anxiety. Whether it’s the distinctive smells and sounds, injections, or sitting in the dental chair, dental anxiety prevents many people from seeking the essential dental care they need.
At Briarwood Dental, we take every step to soothe your worries so that you can feel confident about taking care of your oral health. From a caring team who puts your needs first to comforting sedation dentistry, we’ll do everything we can to ensure you have a stress-free experience.
Sedation dentistry helps millions of people get the oral health care they wouldn’t otherwise be able to tolerate. We offer several types of sedation for your comfort:
- Nitrous oxide (laughing gas)
- Oral conscious sedation
- IV (intravenous) sedation
Members of our team are trained in dental sedation safety and can administer nitrous oxide and oral sedation. These types of sedation will help you relax, but they won’t knock you out. If you prefer to “check out,” we are also certified to safely administer IV sedation at our dental office.
Please don’t put off dental treatment because of anxiety. We understand your concerns and want you to get the care you need to maintain a healthy smile. If you would like to schedule an appointment to learn more about sedation dentistry, please call Briarwood Dental to arrange a dental appointment.
