Welcome to the Antoine Dental Center blog! We are glad you stopped by today.
By visiting our online home, you have taken an important first step. The next thing you’ll want to do is schedule your next appointment with our caring and compassionate 5-dentist team. But that is not always an easy thing to do.
If you suffer from any dental anxiety, it can be a real obstacle for you. And by not confronting the reality of your oral health needs now, you will only be making your problems more painful and costly to address later. So, don’t do that!
You may not realize it, but you need our professional cleanings to help keep plaque and tartar from creating unhealthy situations. You also deserve to know if any gum disease or tooth decay is emerging so that these things can be attended to while they can still be easily reversed. And you wouldn’t want to go too long without a cancer screening. But on a certain level, you probably know that stuff already.
Here’s our deal: we know that your issues are real, and we take them very seriously. That is why we make preventative maintenance and all of our other dental treatments pain-free and pleasant by providing a welcoming environment and by also offering sedation dentistry options customized to fit your needs. Refreshments, blankets, and entertainment go a long way, but they can only do so much to put you at ease. Trust us, sedation dentistry will take care of the rest!
Sedation Dentistry Makes Oral Health Easy
Around here, we can provide sedation whenever you need to undergo an invasive procedure or deal with your fear of the dentist. There are three types of sedation offering different levels of relaxation:
Inhalation Sedation: This type of sedation is the most frequently used of the three. It involves the use of nitrous oxide (aka: laughing gas) to normalize your bodily functions and relax you for the dental treatment.
Oral Sedation: If your treatment is non-invasive and you only have mild dental fear, you may settle for an orally administered form of sedation. Our dentist will give you a pill that you have to take prior to your operation.
Intravenous Sedation: If your treatment is invasive or you have severe dental fear, you may count on this intravenous sedation to make things easier for you. This form of sedation is administered by injecting the sedative into your bloodstream. The result is immediate and you may relax almost instantly.
Come See Why There’s No Need To Fear This Dentist!
Your oral health is too important to ignore. And your dental problems won’t simply go away all by themselves. It’s time to confront the reality of the situation in your mouth!
