It's not uncommon for people to feel anxiety about dental work. For many, it can be an uncomfortable and frightening process.
At Creating Smiles by Dr. Scott Carel, we understand the fears that people have when visiting the dental office. That's why our Oklahoma City practice specializes in sedation dentistry, a method that allows you to get through your dental procedures with no pain or stress.
Why Use Sedation?
Many people experience fear and anxiety at the thought of visiting their dentist. These feelings can come from a variety of sources. In some cases, it is potential embarrassment over the state of their teeth. For others, the very idea of dental tools scraping against their enamel can cause shudders of phantom pain.
Whatever the reason, it is a fact that some people are afraid of the dentist. For some of these people, though, that fear can prevent them from getting the work needed to maintain proper oral health.
With the use of sedation dentistry, it is possible for our team to perform procedures vital to your well-being, all while you are comfortable. You'll be able to sit through your visit free of pain, fear, or anxiety.
Here at Creating Smiles by Dr. Scott Carel, we work hard to make every patient that walks through our door feel comfortable and welcome. Our passion is helping you achieve a beautiful smile through affordable, stress-free dentistry.
When you are sedated for a procedure at our office, we generally use a blend of oral anti-anxiety medication and nitrous (commonly known as laughing gas). This mixture is both safe and effective, leaving you conscious but completely relaxing your mind and body while preventing any discomfort.
The recovery time for these medications is quick, so you won't have to spend the day recovering. Before you know it, you'll be back on your feet and ready to get on with your day.
