Fear of having work done in the dental office has, for the longest time, kept many people away from coming to the dentist for regular checkups and necessary procedures! If you are among those that are afraid, do not be ashamed. Look no further than Dr. Phillip Greer's office, Sweet Water Dentistry, in Fairhope, AL. We offer two different kinds of sedationL nitrous to help calm and relax you, as well as oral sedation.
With nitrous, an assistant will place a mask over your nose and will turn on the nitrous and oxygen. This will be inhaled through the nose and will relieve you of your anxiety while your dental procedure is being done. After your procedure has finished, you will be placed on only oxygen, to reduce risk of nausea or vomiting from the nitrous.
If you would like a stronger type of sedation, we now offer oral sedation. With this type of sedation, you will be prescribed a sedation pill that you will take one hour before your procedure, only under the dentist's supervision. Your vital signs will be monitored and recorded before and after. This sedation does not put you to sleep for your procedure, but it is normal to become tired and fall asleep. You will need to arrange for someone to pick you up from this appointment if you choose this type of sedation.
If you are afraid of the dentist, and you are interested in looking into getting more information about sedation options to alleviate some anxiety about coming to the dentist, please do not hesitate to call us at Sweet Water Dentistry in Fairhope, AL. We look forward to meeting you and seeing your smile in our office soon!
