For some people, routine dental work in at a dental office is not an option. Adults, children, and special needs patients may need pharmacological assistance. We understand that for some, going to the dentist is a scary event. It’s okay! You aren’t alone. Lots of people feel the same way. Luckily, there are several options for you and your family.
At Forest Family Dentistry, we offer several mind-easing aids for routine to complex dental work. After a thorough examination, the dentist may offer you or a loved one, one of these options:
- Nitrous Oxide Sedation
- Oral Sedation (Valium an Halcion are most commonly prescribed)
- Natural Relaxation techniques from our neighbors at AOMA medicine and BodyBusiness include: message, acupuncture, and diaphragmatic breathing.
Discuss your health needs with your dentist to determine which is best for you and your family.
