Are you someone who avoids going to the dentist because you’re simply too scared? Do you need dental work, but you’re too nervous to sit in the dentist’s chair? Take a moment and join the team at My Rivertown Dentist as we talk with you a little bit about how life-changing sedation dentistry can be. We offer it to you and can’t wait to help you feel relief from your dental anxiety.

Our Sedation Dentistry Solutions Will Soothe You

At My Rivertown Dentist, we welcome you to talk openly about all of your dental fears or anxieties. We know what it feels like, which is one of the biggest reasons why Dr. Lee and team offer sedation dentistry in Madison. You have two options to choose from, including:

  • Nitrous Oxide – often called “laughing gas” or inhalation sedation, this sedation method is gentle enough for children yet powerful enough to relax adults. Even better, nitrous oxide sedation can be quickly reversed with the administration of oxygen so you can drive away from your appointment or return to work without any fogginess or fatigue.
  • Oral Sedation – with this form of sedation, you will be prescribed a small pill to take just before your appointment. This is ideal for patients who have dental phobias, prior dental trauma, fear of needles, a strong gag reflex, or difficulty holding their mouths open for extended periods of time. You will need to have someone drive you to and from your appointment because of the medication’s sedative effects.

It’s important to know that you have options at My Rivertown Dentist, where everyone is here to help you feel comfortable about dental care.

How Sedation Dentistry Can Help You

When you choose Madison sedation dentistry, you’re going to immediately notice that you feel more confident and relaxed about taking care of your smile. Your mind, body, and muscles will not tense up during treatment. This not only helps you while we are working, but it also helps you feel better afterward with less jaw soreness, neck pain, and any other after-effects of tension. Instead of freezing up, feeling nauseated, or experiencing heart palpitations, you can simply lean back, relax, and doze through your visit. It’s just one of the ways we work to make dental care more pleasant for our Madison friends and neighbors.
