At OnCall Dental in Fresno CA, we know that a dental emergency can feel like the end of the world. When you visit us, on top of pain, discomfort, and shock, there’s also the added anxiety of the procedure itself.
The last thing a patient wants when they’re in pain is to subject themselves to potentially uncomfortable dentistry right afterwards. If you are letting dental anxiety prevent you from getting the pain management you need, our sedation options might be the best choice for you.
Our team has put together a small primer on all the sedation dentistry we offer, so you can rest easy knowing that your dental emergency will be dealt with calmly and peacefully.
Sedation Dentistry in Fresno
- Anesthesia: The most basic numbing option in any practice, local anesthetics ensure that, after a small pinprick of pain, you will be comfortably numb for the entirety of your emergency dental visit.
- Conscious Sedation: This involves taking a pill before your appointment. Your dentist will provide the proper dose of anti-anxiety medication so you can be relaxed, safe, and at-ease. Someone will have to drive you to and from the procedure.
- Nitrous Oxide: You might have heard people call this ‘laughing gas’ and it’s aptly named! It puts you in a calm and relaxed state. You might even feel giddy! It’s a strange feeling to associate with an emergency, but it beats stress!
An emergency doesn’t need to be more chaotic than it already is.
