We want you to be able to enjoy each and every one of your visits to Brick Dental Care. Of course, some people have a harder time relaxing than others. Do you tense up with fear whenever you imagine getting your teeth cleaned? Have you ever chosen to ignore a toothache instead of scheduling an appointment? Dr. Gizachew is used to working with all kinds of patients, and if you call us for an appointment, he can recommend an appropriate form of sedation dentistry from our Brick Township, NJ dentist that will leave you feeling nice and calm throughout your entire appointment.
Severely anxious patients should consider oral conscious sedation for their appointments. The process is quite simple. You’ll be given some medication that you’ll take the night before or at some other point before the appointment. You should be rested and relaxed by the time a trusted friend or family member drives you to our dental office. While you won’t actually be asleep, you’ll be so at ease that you might not even remember the procedure itself later.
When you only need minimal sedation, we’ll recommend nitrous oxide. You’ll breathe in the gas through a special mask throughout your appointment. We can adjust the amount of sedation you receive based on your level of comfort. The gas tends to wear off quickly after your visit is complete. That means unlike with oral conscious sedation, you’ll be awake enough to drive yourself home or return to work once the dental appointment itself is complete.
