Relaxing Care with Sedation Dentistry

February 14, 2014

sedation dentistryDo you avoid going to the dentist? Many people do, often because of anxiety. But skipping appointments, whether a simple checkup or a more advanced procedure, is a bad idea. In the absence of care, you could develop cavities, gum disease, or another serious oral health condition.

You don’t have to live with dental fear forever, though. Using sedation dentistry, the team at Robison Dental Group in Canton can help you have a new kind of dental experience. Instead of feeling anxious or claustrophobic, you can feel relaxed and at peace.

That’s all thanks to the power of a small pill you’ll take just before your appointment begins, an approach known as oral sedation.

A patient who uses oral sedation to overcome anxiety will come through a dental appointment with little to no memory of the individual details of the appointment. What he or she will remember is feeling comfortable and anxiety-free while receiving important care.

If you’ll be using oral sedation for the first time, keep in mind that you’ll need to have a friend or family member drive you home afterward.

Do you have questions about what’s possible with oral sedation? Call Robison Dental Group in Canton today. Our doctors are happy to answer the questions you might have about dental anxiety, sedation dentistry, and oral sedation. We offer great care to patients from Canton, Ann Arbor, Northville, Westland, and Plymouth.

Effective Sedation Dentistry for Canton-Area Patients

October 12, 2012

For many patients, anxiety is an impediment to essential oral care. But it doesn’t have to be the way. If you put off or avoid important dental visits because of fear, Dr. John and J.D. Robison have a simple but effective service known as oral sedation that can help you overcome your worries and get the treatment you need.

Oral sedation dentistry has been used by dentists for more than 30 years. It is an absolutely safe method of inducing feelings of peace and relaxation. What’s more, patients who choose oral sedation dentistry often remember little or nothing at all about their appointment afterwards.

Here’s how it works.

During your consultation with us, your doctor will write you a prescription for a commonly used sedative or anti-anxiety medication. Then, when you leave our Canton dental office, you’ll just need to have it filled so you can take your pill on the day of your next treatment.

Because of how powerful the effectives of oral sedation are, you’ll need to have a trusted companion—either a friend or a family member—with you to drive you to and from your appointment. By the next day you’ll be free to return to your regular activities with a healthier smile and improved confidence in your oral health.

To find out how oral sedation from Robison Dental Group can help you, give our Canton office a call today. We’re proud to provide patients from Canton, Ann Arbor, Northville, Westland, and Plymouth with excellent oral sedation dentistry.
