Afraid Of The Dentist? Sedation Dentistry Can Help

Afraid of the Dentist? Your Derry Sedation Dentist Can HelpIf you experience severe anxiety when undergoing (or even thinking about) dental treatment, sedation dentistry from Vanguard Dental Group in Derry NH may be just what you need.

Sedation dentistry is available in several forms. It is completely safe, and very effective for people coping with dental anxiety and dental phobia.

Though it may sound impossible, sedation dentistry allows you to actually relax during dental visits. In addition, healing times for oral surgery and extensive cosmetic dentistry procedures are often shorter if the patient is sedated during treatment.

At Vanguard Dental Group in Derry NH, we have two options:

  • Nitrous oxide. Better known as laughing gas  – but it won’t necessarily make you laugh. It is very effective in alleviating anxiety. It works quickly, wears off quickly, and has been used in dentistry for more than one hundred years.
  • Conscious sedation. This involves taking a prescribed sedative before your appointment. It does not make you sleep (hence the name) but puts you in a deeply relaxed state. You will need a ride to and from our office.

To find out more about sedation dentistry and whether it’s right for you, call Vanguard Dental Group in Derry NH. We also offer pediatric dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.
