At Comfort Dental Spa, we understand that dental fears are a real problem. Many people have dental anxiety from negative past experiences, fear of embarrassment, a sensitive gag reflex, or an aversion to dental office smells and sounds. If these fears are keeping you from getting the dental treatment you need, your health could be suffering. Our experienced Farmington Hills dentist, Dr. Askari offers gentle dentistry options to help patients with anxiety regain their oral health.
Sedation Dentistry in Farmington Hills
One of the easiest ways dental phobic patients can benefit from Comfort Dental Spa is with sedation dentistry. We offer a variety of options depending on your preference and level of comfort. For most patients, the warm, drowsy feeling from nitrous oxide is enough to help them feel completely comfortable, yet totally in control during their dental appointment. As an added benefit, many patients who use nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, can safely drive themselves home after treatment.
Oral Sedation Helps Dental Phobic Patients
For patients who need more help feeling relaxed and safe in the dental chair, we also offer sedation through a pill or IV. For this type of sedation, a companion should escort you to and from our Farmington Hills dental office, or we can arrange a car service prior to treatment. This type of sedation allows you to sleep through your procedure with little to no memory of your appointment. While you are under sedation, our team of experts will closely monitor your vital signs and level of comfort.
Sedation Dentistry can Benefit Busy Patients
Sedation dentistry is not only beneficial for patients with dental anxiety, but also for patients who need several procedures completed in one day. We understand that many of our patients lead busy and stressful lifestyles with little to no time to schedule dental appointments. Under sedation, our patients can benefit from having multiple procedures performed in one sitting, comfortably.
