At Creating Smiles, we go the extra mile to make our dental office as warm, comfortable and stress-free as possible. We offer a range of sedation dentistry options to help you overcome any anxiety you may have.
Up to twenty percent of Americans avoid the dentist because of dental anxiety. At Creating Smiles, we want you to get the treatment you need to keep your oral health in tip-top shape. If you are experiencing dental anxiety or fear about an upcoming appointment, treatment or procedure, please let us know! We have options that can help you overcome your dental anxiety, so you can get the treatment you need.
Our sedation dentistry options include:
Local anesthesia is administered through an injection to the area where a procedure or treatment will occur. The anesthesia will block pain receptors and numb the immediate and surrounding area of where it is administered. This allows the patient to remain awake and alert but feel no pain during their procedure or treatment.
Oral sedation refers to prescription drugs that are taken orally before a dental appointment to relieve stress or pain. They are typically taken at least an hour before treatment and will allow the patient to remain awake but in a state of calm.
This sedation method involves placing a mask over the nose during a procedure or treatment. The patient will inhale the laughing gas through the mask, relieving them of anxiety or fear and putting them in a generally calm state. The effects of laughing gas are harmless and typically wear off as soon as the patient ceases inhaling it.
Don’t let your dental anxiety get in the way of the treatment your oral health needs. For sedation dentistry in Lutz, please call our dental office at (813) 278-6979 to schedule an appointment.
