At Beautiful Dentistry, it is our priority to make sure you receive the best dental care in a calm, relaxing environment. Dr. Sobieraj and the entire dental staff at our Tempe, AZ dentist office are kind and gentle, but we also understand that many people experience anxiety when faced with a dentist appointment.
Quality dental care should never hurt or cause anxiety, which is why we provide sedation dentistry options our patients can trust.
Conscious Oral Sedation
If you suffer from dental anxiety, Dr. Sobieraj may recommend conscious oral sedation. This anti-anxiety medication works by toning down activity in the parts of your brain that cause you to feel anxious or afraid.
Remember, if you take oral sedation, you cannot drive before or after your appointment. Make sure you have a friend or family member transport you to and from your appointment.
Dental anxiety can prevent many patients from visiting the dentist for checkups and much-needed dental work. If dental appointments make you anxious, Dr. Sobieraj can administer laughing gas to help you feel more at ease during your visit.
At our Tempe dentist office, laughing gas is administered using a comfortable flexible mask, allowing you to feel more at ease within minutes. If you are feeling anxious about an upcoming dental treatment, ask about nitrous oxide. Most of our patients are good candidates for this treatment, including our pediatric dental patients.
