Hello and welcome to another September edition of the Advanced Dental of Las Cruces blog!
Around here, we treat each and every patient just like family. As such, we will take the time to work with you on a personal level to provide you with an individualized treatment plan and to ascertain if there are any stumbling blocks such as dental phobia.
If you are uneasy about going to the dentist, and you let it interfere with the ongoing care you need, it can balloon into a more painful and more costly situation for you to remedy down the road.
That’s why we make it our mission to make everyone feel at ease.
A Modern Office With A Welcoming Atmosphere
We understand that you may have had unfriendly dentists or unpleasant experiences in the past. But we are here to help you work through all that and get the kind of care required to keep you on track.
There won’t be any lectures or unkind remarks aimed at you. We only want to get you headed back in the right direction.
To that end, we will provide you with the sort of professional teeth cleanings that can keep food, tartar and plaque from causing disease and decay.
Plus, our thorough examinations will give you a heads up if there are any emerging causes for concern. Even if you get bad news, it is always better to know before it is too late to take the easy way out. Fillings are always better than root canals and extractions, right?
You will see that our staff is easy to talk to, and they can really help soothe and calm you down before and during your procedure.
Beyond that, we can help you to put your fears to rest with the help of modern sedation dentistry techniques. You will have a couple of options with us, depending on your needs.
Don’t worry! Nitrous Oxide is our basic and most universal sedation dentistry option. The gas is delivered to you through a mask that fits comfortably over your nose. It is a great, safe solution for patients who have a mild level of anxiety.
During your nitrous oxide session, you will remain fully awake, though completely relaxed, and once it is over, the effects wear off fast.
Oral Conscious Sedation
We offer oral sedation as a way to take sedation dentistry further for those who could benefit from it. This method comes in the form of a pill and is used to treat more intense feelings of anxiety.
You will get a prescription to fill ahead of your scheduled visit.
The oral sedation method will allow you to remain awake during your time here, though you may not remember any of dental procedures you experienced.
And you will need to line-up someone to drive you to and from our office. You will be far too relaxed to be in the driver’s seat!
What Are You Waiting For?
We hope you will feel emboldened to take back your health! Contact our Las Cruces dentist’s office today to learn more about dental sedation in New Mexico!
