One of the main reasons patients avoid dentistry is because they have Dental Anxiety. People who have dental anxiety often site the reason as having negative experiences at the dentist in their past. Some patients cannot even explain the reason for their fear of the dentist. These patients unfortunately, often put off their need for dental treatment. Causing their current tooth condition to get worse and usually end up in an emergency situation.
We would like to help you avoid a dental emergency. Here at Dr. Jones office we offer a solution to help you get the dental care you need and feel completely at ease before, during and after your appointment.
In our office we offer what is called “Oral Conscious Sedation”. Oral Conscious Sedation is one of the safest and most effective methods of sedation used in dental offices today. While you are in our office you will be completely relaxed while remaining conscious. You will be able to answer our questions and participate in your dental appointment. This method utilizes medication(s) that help you relax. After we have reviewed a complete medical health history of the patient requiring oral conscious sedation, we will be able to rule out any potential problems such as drug interactions or medical conditions that may interfere with your sedation medication. Dr. Jones will then prescribe medication that you would take the night before to help you get a good night sleep and the day of your scheduled appointment (one hour before the appointment).
During your appointment you will be closely monitored to ensure you safety and comfort. Many patients report little or no memory of their appointments. Many patients feel so relaxed that they actually doze off during dental treatment procedure.
