Dentistry for Anxious Patients

Do you suffer from a high amount of anxiety or stress when going to the dentist?

Does this anxiety/stress cause you to avoid seeing your dentist altogether?

If this sounds like you, then you may be a candidate for sedation dentistry. We specialize in treating people, like you, who have an extreme dental fear and experience a high level of anxiety - no matter what the reason - when visiting their dentist.

Sedation dentistry involves the administration of a drug to help you relax during your visit to the dental office. There are numerous methods used to achieve sedation. These range from nitrous oxide or “laughing gas”, oral medicines or pills, to medicine administered intravenously or “I.V.”

At Carmichael Healthcare our focus is on I.V. sedation. We feel that this method helps our patients consistently reach the level of relaxation required to complete their appointment. As an added side effect of the medication used, most people have little to no memory of the dental appointment.

We have helped many people overcome their dental fears and anxiety. You may be a candidate for sedation if you have experienced one of the following:

  • Fear or anxiety about dental treatment
  • Strong gag reflex
  • Extensive dental problems requiring long or difficult treatments
  • You have difficulty taking time off for work and need to do as much as possible per visit
  • Previous bad experience

Sedation Dentistry has given people the opportunity to achieve previous unattainable levels of dental health. If your fear or anxiety has been preventing you from going to the dentist, call or e-mail to arrange a complimentary consultation.
