All of our patients are treated as if they were our close friends or family members. We understand that everyone has varying comfort levels about dental care, including anxiety or even complete fear. At Wilton Manors Dental, we take extra steps to help each patient feel comfortable, relaxed, and meet their individual needs when it comes to anxiety. Each room has a television and noise canceling headphones to help patients tune out what’s going on around them. We also offer warm blankets and neck pillows to keep you comfortable while you’re sitting back for treatment.
Additional anxiety-free services include:
Light Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation allows patients to feel like they’re taking a light nap during their dental procedure. Most people can respond to basic questions or instructions (such as turning their head, or lifting their chin), but they probably won’t remember any of it once it’s finished. Sedation is achieved by using an orally administrated prescription sedative that takes effect within about one hour. Effects last for a few hours, allowing patients to get as much treatment completed as possible, in just one appointment.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Nitrous oxide is a very simple addition that can be included with any dental appointment (even cleanings!) The gas is mixed with oxygen, which causes the patient to feel very relaxed, with full effects in just a few minutes, and extremely safe to use on patients of all ages. As soon as the procedure is completed, the patient is placed back on 100% oxygen for 5 minutes, allowing the nitrous effects to be fully reversed and the patient free to drive themselves home!
