Receiving dental care is essential for keeping a beautiful, healthy smile. However, many try to avoid the dentist because of anxiety or other related reasons, but at the expense of their wellbeing.
Sedation dentistry offers patients a reliable, comfortable experience at the dental office, alleviating anxiety and reducing sensation. Patients that undergo sedation-assisted treatment receive the comfortable care they need to stay healthy and look their best.
Call our office and schedule an appointment with Dr. Jeffrey Himler for sedation dentistry in Marysville.
How does Sedation Dentistry Work?
Our office prescribes medications taken either before or during treatment to help patients remain completely relaxed and calm during procedures. Patients are responsive but unaware of their surroundings, ignoring the dental office atmosphere while retaining little to no memory of the procedure.
Patients will require a ride to and from their procedure but can return to normal activities the following day.
What We Do with Sedation Dentistry
As a dentist certified to offer sedation as a means of alleviating anxiety, we take great responsibility in how we administer our services.
Sedation dentistry gives Dr. Himler the ability to complete necessary treatment in much less time and with the least amount of effort from the patient. This allows us to work more efficiently with maximum comfort for the patient.
Non-sedation Options for Anxiety Relief
Our practice prides ourselves on helping patients keep calm during treatments. Vern, our wonderful and loving therapy dog, sits by the side of patients during procedures and helps patients of all ages receive necessary oral health care.
Vern is trained in a clinical atmosphere, having learned to lay his head on the patient's lap or allow patients to rest their palms on Vern’s head. We treat Vern as one of our dental family, making sure he is as happy as he makes his patients.
Additionally, we offer Solea Laser-assisted services that eliminate negative sensations almost completely. We are able to conduct common treatments without issues, such as fillings, and minor surgical procedure.
