“Many adults harbor anxiety from traumatic childhood dental experiences. With sedation we can put our patients at ease in a secure environment, while accomplishing their dental goals. ” – Dr. Dieter Knauss
Do you have dental anxiety?
Dental anxiety is a very real and widespread condition in our society. Many patients feel uncomfortable at the dental office from prior experiences. If fear has inhibited you from making an appointment, you are not alone. Granite Dental Group can help alleviate your fears through various methods, allowing you to achieve your dental goals in a comfortable and safe environment.
Our dental team is trained in various methods of sedation to help alleviate your anxiety and help you relax at your appointment.
Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, is a medication that is inhaled through a nasal mask while you are having treatment. It can be used on children, along with adults.
Oral sedation involves the use of a sedative pill taken an hour before your appointment.
IV sedation, also called twilight sedation, is our deepest form of sedation. It is administered by an anesthesiologist, and the patient is in a state of sleep.
Our goal is to make you as relaxed as possible while you are having treatment.
