Can you explain in more detail the types of sedation and what is right for me?

 

I would encourage you go to my sedation tab to read further regarding sedation. Bottom line is there are many different options to help make you more relaxed but the recommended choice is based on your past experiences, the work that needs to be done as well as the amount of work to be done, your medical history. More patients fear going to the dentist because of a bad experience or because they simply don't understand.

 

Having said that, picking a dentist just because "he can sedate you" is not enough. When looking for a dentist, you need to ask yourself several questions:

 

Does he understand my fears and concerns and did he offer me solutions?

Does he have up to date equipment and properly trained staff?

Did he explain everything in a manner that you understand...that is can you make an educated decision based on what he has advised you on?

Was he gentle? If you had a cleaning, was the hygienist gentle?

Was the front desk gentle and receptive to your needs?

 

I believe with a friendly staff and a dentist who takes the time to explain your problems as well as what caused them, offer solutions and alternatives along with the pros and cons, is just as important for helping with anxiety and fear.
