Your Greenwood dental team at Banner Dental goes above and beyond to ensure that you feel as comfortable as possible while you’re in our care. Dental anxiety is a very real thing that patients of all ages suffer from, so we do everything we can to put you at ease during your visit. We work at a pace that is right for you so you’ll feel at ease. Your comfort is our top priority.
If your anxiety is more severe and you need help to stay calm while you’re with us, we offer sedation to settle your nerves. Whether it’s been years since you’ve had a cleaning and exam or you’re visiting for extensive restorative work, our calming sedation options keep you relaxed throughout your treatment. Dr. Lael has completed advanced training in Oral Conscious Sedation and holds a Washington state issued permit to provide such services.
Nitrous oxide is also called laughing gas. This sweet-smelling gas is inhaled through a mask on the nose and mouth. It creates a sense of well-being and relaxation in patients but allows them to stay awake throughout the procedure.
Oral Conscious Sedation
If you experience moderate to severe dental anxiety, we offer oral conscious sedation to help you stay calm throughout your treatment. Sedatives are administered orally to induce a heightened state of relaxation. The calming effects of oral conscious sedation allow our team to work efficiently throughout your treatment.
