At Poway Dental Arts, we are a patient-centered practice committed to treating you like we would treat our own. So many patients suffer from dental anxiety, often due to bad experiences in the past. With our sedation dentistry option, we want to re-invent what it means to go to the dentist's office: your dental "home" is a place you can look forward to visiting, where you will be taken care of by people who care.
Dr. Rich and our supportive team are committed to making sure you get the high quality dental care you need in a way that brings you peace of mind. Our practice has invested in the latest technology to make your treatment as efficient as possible, and our team cultivates a positive atmosphere. Enjoy botanical touches like our potted plants, the "open" or "airy" feeling of our operatories, and as many blankets and pillows as you need to feel at ease.
On top of our gentle chair-side manner and relaxing environment, we also offer sedation dentistry options to help your mind and body relax. If you need dental treatment, we will always make sure you are properly "numbed" before your procedure, but for a little extra help taking the edge off, we also offer oral sedation and laughing gas.
If you suffer from dental anxiety, Dr. Rich may recommend oral sedation. These anti-anxiety pills tone down activity in the parts of your brain that cause you to feel anxious or afraid.
Remember, if you take oral sedation, you cannot drive before or after your appointment. Bring a friend or family member with you to make sure you arrive and get back home safely following your appointment.
Unfortunately, dental anxiety can keep many patients from visiting the dentist for checkups and much-needed dental work. If dental appointments make you or your child anxious, Dr. Rich can administer laughing gas to help you feel more at ease during your visit.
At Poway Dental Arts, laughing gas is administered using a mask, allowing you to feel more at ease within minutes. If you are feeling anxious about an upcoming visit, ask about nitrous oxide. Most of our patients, including our pediatric patients, are good candidates for this sedation dentistry option
Don’t let dental anxiety keep you from receiving the dental care you and your family need. Call Poway Dental Arts to schedule your sedation dentistry appointment today!
