Why are we sometimes more willing to watch a horror movie or pay good money to walk through a haunted house, even if it scares us, yet we’re not willing to do the same when it comes to our health?
Fear of the dentist affects millions of people, and before it controls you, your friends at Carolina Bright Smiles want to help you face it, overcome it, and finally take back your dental health!
Overcome Fear & Build Confidence With Dental Sedation!
We use an advanced numbing technique to ensure your procedures are pain-free. But sometimes, patients need more help feeling calm, comfortable, and relaxed.
For that, we offer three different types of dental sedation in Hillsborough to suit your needs:
*Take The Edge Off With Inhaled Sedation*
This is laughing gas, which you’ve probably heard of before.
It’s safe for all ages, and it starts working immediately and wears off right away, so you’re able to drive yourself to and from your appointment.
Laughing gas is great if you just need something to take the edge off while you receive shorter, or simpler treatments.
*Feel Calm & Comfortable With Oral Sedation*
If you have a stronger physical reaction to visiting the dentist, laughing gas may not be enough to help calm your nerves.
For that, you can try oral sedation. It’s a prescription medication that you would take before your appointment so that by the time your treatment begins, you’re more relaxed and comfortable.
This method would require you to arrange transportation to and from our practice because you’ll be too groggy to drive.
*Reach Deeper Relaxation With IV Sedation*
This is the strongest option available, and not every dentist has the training and certification to offer it.
But your Hillsborough dentist can!
Dr. Garrett can closely monitor your level of sedation throughout your procedure, and adjust it if necessary, so that you are so deeply relaxed, you won’t care what’s going on around you. You’ll be able to let go of your fear and anxiety and get the treatment you need to restore your dental health.
Like the oral sedative option, you would need someone to drive you to and from your appointment.
Experience A Stress-Free Dental Appointment!
Halloween is the perfect time to think about your fears and the extent to which you might be letting them control you.
Fear of the dentist is really common, and it’s leaving too many people unhealthy and unhappy because of a lack of routine dental care.
