A Warm, Welcoming AtmosphereRead Transcript
For those patients, we have a variety of options as well. All of our patients have the option of getting nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, here. That's free of charge. Whether you're coming in for a cleaning or you need a more intricate procedure, we offer that to you. And if you have a more complex procedure that requires additional types of sedation, we have some pharmaceutical options that we can prescribe depending on the type of patient that can really relax them. We won't put the patient to sleep, but we'll do some form of what's called a conscious sedation and they're talking to us, they're not “under,” for lack of a better term, but it really just relaxes the patient and allows us to do our work more thoroughly.
The first step to helping our patients feel at ease is to create a welcoming, comforting atmosphere. We have done this by employing a spacious, 6,000-square-foot facility with large windows. This creates an open, comfortable environment. We also have a friendly, knowledgeable team that is essential in helping our patients feel at home.
Semi-private operatories are also something that help our patients feel at ease. We understand that you don’t want your dental care out in the open for the whole office to see. We can take care of you in a more private environment.
In additional to our inviting atmosphere, we offer a range of comfort amenities aimed at helping you feel as relaxed as possible. We offer:
At Parkway Dental, we offer two types of sedation dentistry: nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation.
Nitrous oxide is a gas that is inhaled via a face mask to create a more relaxed demeanor. This type of sedation is great for taking the edge off of your nerves. We offer nitrous oxide free for any patients who want it. It is a very low level of sedation and wears off quickly.
We also offer oral conscious sedation. This form of sedation is administered by mouth, usually in the form of pill. We use a small amount of Valium or Halcion to help you feel very relaxed. With this type of sedation, you are still awake and aware of the procedure, but you may feel groggy enough to doze in and out. If you decide to use oral conscious sedation, please note that you will need someone to drive you to and from the office, as this medication wears off slower than nitrous oxide.
Both methods of sedation are completely safe and easy to use. The type you choose will depend solely on your level of dental anxiety and the procedure at hand. We can help you feel very relaxed and at ease with these simple additions to your treatment. Let us know how we can help you feel even more comfortable while you are in our care.
