It can be frustrating when your dental anxiety isn’t taken seriously. Just one bad experience at the dentist can make you afraid of ever going back again. At Carolina Bright Smiles, we understand how real a fear of the dentist can be. So, our Hillsborough, NC dentist offers you sedation options to help you relax while in the dental chair. Sedation dentistry can make it possible to get the dental care you need to keep your smile in great condition.
In addition to sedation options, our dentists – Dr. Hampton, Dr. King, and Dr. Garrett – are skilled in minimizing your discomfort, and our friendly team of dental professionals will go out of their way to make you feel at home.
To schedule your appointment, call 919-296-0409.
Anutra Medical Painless Local Anesthesia
Local North Carolina company Anutra Medical offers a pain-free local anesthesia system. They’ve figured out a way to take the sting out of the numbing process. It’s now available at Carolina Bright Smiles, and we’re proud to offer it as part of our pain-free dentistry policy.
If you’re feeling anxious about your upcoming dental procedure, our dentists can prescribe you Valium®. You’ll take a single dose before your visit so you’ll be nice and relaxed by the time we begin your treatment. Oral sedation will make the time pass quickly and soften your memories of your treatment. You’ll need a ride home following your appointment just in case the effects of sedation have not worn off.
After a few deep breaths, nitrous oxide will make you feel light and happy. It’s often called “laughing gas” because it can put you in a good mood. Your dentist will place a small mask over your nose for you to inhale the gas. Nitrous oxide wears off quickly, so you’ll be able to get back to your day following your appointment.
Don’t let dental anxiety be the reason your smile falls into disrepair. Our Hillsborough, NC dentist can help with our sedation options! Schedule your appointment at Carolina Bright Smiles by filling out our online form or calling us at 919-296-0409.
