Many patients become nervous or anxious before and during the cosmetic and restorative procedures we perform. To ensure that you can be relaxed and comfortable during your appointment, Dr. Holley and Dr. Duncan offer sedation dentistry services.
Sedation dentistry is the practice of administering mild sedatives to a patient that keep them relaxed, yet conscious, during their dental appointment. It is a simple and safe way to take the anxiety out of receiving dental work.
Drs. Holley and Duncan provide oral conscious sedation, which entails giving the patient an oral medication to take one to two hours before the dental appointment. This will keep the patient conscious and able to respond, yet in a very deeply relaxed state.
Alternatively, Dr. Holley or Dr. Duncan can administer nitrous oxide, or "laughing gas" to relax the patient.
When sedation dentistry is used, we advise that all patients be driven to and picked up from their appointments.
