You’re Not Alone in Dental Fear
Are you afraid of visiting the dentist or get anxious when thinking of dental procedures? You’re not alone. Around 40 million other Americans also experience dental anxiety and fear. Dr. John Thousand is here to help change your view on dentistry and likely change your life in the process. How? We offer sedation dentistry to help make your experience calming, anxiety-free and nearly painless. We have sedation options for the most basic of procedures all the way to the most advanced so you don’t have to put off any treatment. It is important to have your dental treatment done as soon as possible, because the longer you delay, more damage can be caused.
Sedation Options to Treat Any Level of Anxiety
Applied directly to the location where a procedure will take place, this form of sedation numbs the area to block pain.
Taken as a pill an hour before treatment, this sedation can be mild or moderate and places the patient in a sleepy state for treatment.
Commonly known as “laughing gas,” this sedation method is fast acting and administered via a mask worn during the procedure.
The strongest sedation we offer, this is administered intravenously and places the patient in a sleep-like state, commonly giving them amnesia after the procedure is complete. Dr. Thousand is specially certified to administer IV sedation.
