Conscious Sedation Available In Fargo
Don’t let fear or anxiety keep you from the healthy, happy smile that you deserve. Sedation dentistry can awaken your smile and even help you look forward to seeing the dentist.
We know that dental pain can be a very serious issue for many people. For some, it can even prevent them from getting the general dentistry care they need. Fortunately, with modern methods and a caring touch, this fear can be overcome.
We at Designer Smiles in Fargo near Moorhead understand your concerns and are ready to help you discover an option that will make you feel comfortable—before and during your visit. We offer sedation dentistry procedures and techniques proven to calm and relax you, including numbing anesthetics, nitrous oxide treatment, NuCalm and oral conscious sedation. These methods improve patient comfort and can reduce the harmful physiological consequences of untreated pain.
Another benefit of dental sedation is that, for many people, several procedures can be performed all at once. If you have multiple cosmetic dental procedures that need to be done, these options can allow you to have them done in just one appointment, saving you the hassle and inconvenience of multiple trips to the dentist.
Local anesthetics can be very effective for reducing pain. The most commonly used is lidocaine, which lasts in the body for about 1.5–2 hours.
Nitrous Oxide Treatment
Nitrous oxide (commonly referred to as “laughing gas”) is painlessly administered through a fitted mask placed over the nose. To ensure that there are no lingering effects, you’ll be given oxygen for a brief period of time at the end of your appointment.
NuCalm is a reliable, non-narcotic way for us to induce an intense state of relaxation. It combines dietary supplements, cranial electrotherapy stimulation, neuroacoustic binaural beat software, and light-blocking glasses to calm brain waves. NuCalm gives a spa-like quality to your visits, providing complete comfort for your mind and body.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation is commonly used in sedation dentistry to induce a state of deep relaxation. Triazolam is a small pill that is a safe, quick-acting sedative with virtually no side effects other than some occasional drowsiness.
Our doctors have been specifically trained to help you choose the sedation method that is right for you. Call us today at 701-566-5063 to schedule an appointment if you are in the Fargo area, from West Fargo to Moorhead!
