I'm nervous about my dental appointment. How can you help?

Many people experience fear or anxiety around visiting the dentist. The important thing is that you don't let it keep you away from the dental care you need.

If you or a loved one experiences dental anxiety, your team at Emery Village Dental can help! We offer several types of dental sedation that can help you relax and feel at ease in the dental chair, whether you're having your teeth cleaned or a tooth replaced.

Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

The mildest form of dental sedation we offer is nitrous oxide, also called laughing gas, which you inhale through a mask worn during your procedure. Nitrous oxide helps you relax quickly, and then it leaves your system quickly once we remove your mask.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation provides a deeper relaxation through a pill you take one hour before your appointment. Due to the nature of the medication we use, this type of sedation requires that you have transportation arranged to and from your appointment.

IV Sedation for Dental Anxiety

IV sedation provides a level of relaxation that is similar to sleeping through your dental procedures. Dr. Joo delivers medication intravenously while monitoring your vitals and heart rate. IV sedation may be helpful for patients with special needs or severe anxiety.
