It can be frustrating if your dental anxiety isn’t taken seriously. At Carolina Bright Smiles, we understand how real a fear of the dentist can be. So our dentists offer Hillsborough sedation options to help you relax while you’re in our patient chair. Sedation dentistry makes it possible to get the care you need to keep your smile in great condition.
Because every situation is different, we offer three kinds of safe dental sedation:
- Inhaled Sedation – After a few deep breaths, inhaled sedation makes you feel light and happy. Your dentist will place a small mask over your nose for you to inhale the gas. This light sedation wears off quickly, so you’ll be able to drive yourself home if you’d like.
- Oral Sedation – You’ll take a single dose of prescription medication before your visit, so you’ll arrive relaxed and stay that way. Oral sedation makes time pass quickly and softens memories of your treatment. You’ll likely be groggy after your procedure, so you will need a ride home.
- IV Sedation – You’ll be in a deeply relaxed state after we intravenously administer medication. We can easily adjust the amount you receive during your procedure if you need more to stay relaxed.
In addition to sedation dentistry, our dentists are skilled in minimizing your discomfort, and our friendly team goes out of their way to make you feel at home. To schedule a stress-free appointment, call 919-644-7400.
Getting Numb Is Painless With Sting-Free Anesthesia
If you’re anxious about receiving local anesthesia, you don’t need to be here. We use a pain-free local anesthesia system from North Carolina company Anutra Medical. They’ve figured out a way to take the sting out of the numbing process. We’re proud to offer it as part of our pain-free dentistry policy.
Don’t let dental anxiety be the reason your smile falls into disrepair. We’ll ease your anxiety with Hillsborough sedation options.
