Find Out What We Can Do for Your Anxiety
My approach to dental anxiety is to have the patient sit in the chair, or stand, whatever’s comfortable for them, and I’ll sit down and I’ll talk to them and just hear their story of what happened. Then, tell them what we’re going to do to help them get through it. You know, I have a license in conscious sedation and what that does is it gets you so 90-95% of the people just do not remember, and it gets you relaxed. It’s a very good way to have dentistry done. Without seeing it, it seems like people heal up even better because they’re not sitting in the chair so tense with that. So we do that, and we also have a pill—a little small pill we can grind up and put up onto your tongue. That takes a little bit longer to work. And we also have. Well, we can put that on you and get you more relaxed, and we turn that off, the , and then you can drive home after that.
