Some people may dread going to the dentist due to anxiety or dental fear, but that doesn’t mean they should have to suffer just to get basic dental treatments completed. With the help of sedation options provided by Dr. Friedland and our team, you can get your treatments completed, whether it’s as simple as a dental cleaning or as complex as a full mouth reconstruction. If you aren’t sure if sedation dentistry in Pembroke Pines is right for you, give our dental office a call!
For moderate to severe levels of anxiety, oral conscious sedation offers relief to those struggling with dental treatments. The sedative is taken by mouth several hours before the treatment actually begins. This means by the time you arrive at the dental office, you’ll be relaxed and ready to receive care. However, this means that you’ll need to have a friend or family member drive you to and from the dental office to ensure your safety.
For more mild cases of dental fear or anxiety, nitrous oxide offers quick-acting relief to those with difficultly completing dental treatments. This sedation is inhaled during the process of your treatment, making it easy for Dr. Friedland to control your level of comfort on the fly. You’ll still be able to communicate with the dentist regardless of the sedation you choose. With nitrous oxide, you can easily continue the rest of your day.
