Sedation Dentistry  Wilmington, NC

Sedation Dentistry

If going to the dentist makes you feel uncomfortable or if you’re having trouble with dental anxiety, you might want to consider sedation as an option. Other reasons you may be considering sedation include needing more complicated procedures that take more time. When your mind and body are more calm and at ease with sedation, it enables your dentist to complete the procedure faster – getting you in and out faster too!

    We offer two types of sedation here at Coast Pines Dental: nitrous oxide and oral sedation. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a safe and effective form of mild sedation that is inhaled through a mask placed over your nose. Oral sedation involves taking a prescribed medication prior to your appointment to help you feel relaxed during the procedure.

    Both types of sedation we provide here at Coast Pines Dental are mild and allow you to remain conscious and able to respond to your dentist during your appointment. With sedative options available, patients are able to have a more relaxing experience in the dental chair. Putting off dental visits can lead to more damaging problems further down the road causing chronic diseases and irreversible tooth decay or loss. Don’t let dental anxiety lead you to avoid going to the dentist all together.

    If you suffer from dental anxiety, don’t let that be the reason you skip the dentist any longer! Ask about our sedation options for a more relaxing visit. Coast Pines Dental cares for your comfort – Call today!
