Fear and anxiety surrounding the dentist are common in people of all ages. As your dental care professionals, it is our mission to make your care as comfortable as possible. Archbold Family Dental offers several forms of anxiety-reducing management, Calm relaxing music, Nitrous Oxide, and Oral Sedation for our more anxious patients.
Our environmental control techniques include calming music on noise reducing headphones, eye mask, blankets etc.
Nitrous oxide is considered minimal sedation which will make you feel light and comfortable. You will still remain in control and be able to interact with the dental staff and understand what is going on during your procedure. Nitrous Oxide is combined with oxygen and given through a mask and is safe for any age. Nitrous oxide works quickly and you will start feeling the effects in just a few minutes. You will return back to normal shortly after the ask is removed allowing you to return to your normal daily routine.
Oral Sedation is one of the available methods of conscious Sedation dentistry that Archbold Family Dental offers for our more anxious patients. With this form of sedation we require someone bring you to and from your appointment.
Do not let fear stop you from getting proper oral health care. If you suffer from anxiety surrounding dental visits or procedures, give us a call at (419) 374-9407.
