Dr. Alexander loves to offer his patients worry-free dentistry. For patients who feel anxious about sitting in the dentist’s chair, we provide a way to feel completely calm and relaxed throughout appointments. We want our patients to be comfortable while making their smiles healthier and more beautiful.
To accommodate our patients, we offer sedation dentistry methods, including oral conscious sedation and Laughing Gas.
Oral Conscious Sedation
If you are nervous about visiting the dentist, Dr. Alexander can provide you with oral sedatives that will help you remain at ease throughout any procedure. After a consultation with him, Dr. Alexander will recommend to you which oral sedative you should take and when you should take it.
Most patients take the sedative about an hour before their appointment. This method of sedation dentistry works like its name suggests. You will remain conscious throughout your visit. You will be completely relaxed, even if you’ve experienced anxiety in the past.
With oral conscious sedation, your appointment will seem like it is over as soon as it starts.
Laughing gas is breathed in during your procedure. This gas has very similar effects to oral conscious sedation. This method of sedation dentistry will keep you conscious but will ease your nerves to the point that you can have an anxiety-free experience. Time will go quickly, and you will feel great throughout your whole visit.
The effects of the laughing gas wear off as soon as you stop breathing it in. This sedation method is so safe that you can drive yourself back home or to work.
