Studies show that up to 15 percent of Americans completely avoid the dentist out of fear. That’s 30 to 40 million people! With sedation dentistry, you won’t be one of them. At A Downtown Dental Group, you can choose from two types of safe dental sedation.
Offering two forms of sedation means:
- You can select a level of relaxation appropriate to your level of anxiety and the treatment you are undergoing
- You can choose a type of sedation that puts you in control
- You can complete multiple procedures in a single appointment, if you’d like
Both options leave you conscious and able to respond to our staff but relaxed enough that you’re no longer afraid. No matter which method you choose, you’ll be carefully monitored throughout your treatment. To schedule a stress-free visit to our Honolulu, HI dental practice, call 808-797-3680.
Choose Inhaled Sedation or Oral Sedation
Both inhaled sedation (“laughing gas”) and oral sedation are noninvasive ways to relax. Laughing gas takes effect quickly and wears off quickly too; you can even drive yourself home after your procedure! With an oral sedative, you can arrive at your appointment already relaxed and remain that way throughout your treatment.
