Don’t Fear the Dentist
Let’s face it. Going to the dentist for regular checkups isn’t everyone’s favorite activity. But for some, the thought of visiting a dentist is so frightening that they avoid it altogether. Beaverton dentist Dr. Michael Negru understands that fear can prevent some patients from getting the dental care they need, which is why Bright Smile Dental Care is pleased to offer sedation dentistry to help calm those nerves.
If going to the dentist makes you feel anxious, then sedation dentistry might be the right choice for you. In sedation dentistry, we administer a sedative to calm your nerves and help you relax. Patients choose sedation dentistry for everything from general dentistry treatments to our extensive array of cosmetic dentistry services.
Dr. Negru offers both oral conscious sedation and nitrous oxide sedation. Oral conscious sedation involves little more than taking a pill and waiting for it to take effect. You’ll be relaxed and calm while we work on your teeth, and even for a period of time afterward. That’s why we ask that a family member be available to drive you home.
With nitrous oxide sedation, you’ll inhale nitrous oxide gas while Dr. Negru performs your procedure. The sedative effect lasts only as long as you breathe the gas, so you can drive yourself home soon afterward.
If fear of the dentist’s office has kept you from getting the dental care you need, it’s time to find out what sedation dentistry can do for you. Please contact Bright Smile Dental Care today to schedule an appointment. We serve patients in Beaverton, Oregon.
