It is estimated that 15% of Americans suffer from dental phobias. Unfortunately, these dental phobias can not only keep you from receiving the general dental care necessary to keep your mouth clean and healthy, but the cosmetic dental procedures you desire to give you the smile of your dreams.
Seattle sedation dentists Dr. Aaron Cooley and Dr. Brandon Cooley understand how frightening a visit to the dentist can be. Starting with a comforting and inviting office, we strive to make your entire dental experience anxiety-free and pleasant. For patients who cannot overcome their dental phobias, we are pleased to offer sedation dentistry.
Sedation dentistry helps you be in a more relaxed state. We employ a variety of techniques while you receive your dental treatments. Cooley Smiles offers several types of sedation that allows us to match your unique individual needs. Using sedation for our anxious patients provides a way to make proper dental care and advanced cosmetic procedures available to everyone.
Types of Sedation
Dr. Aaron and Dr. Brandon use the two forms of sedation listed below:
Nitrous Oxide SedationNitrous oxide is a common form of sedation. It relaxes you, allowing you to be comfortable while remaining responsive. Our dentists generally choose this mild form of sedation for patients who do not suffer from severe dental phobias.
Oral sedationFor patients who have a moderate to severe phobia for dental procedures, we offer oral sedation. This method is given by pill and is taken an hour prior to your procedure. This medication allows you to feel complete relaxation, and you may even fall asleep.
Because we want to choose the method that best suits your needs, we work closely with a compassionate sedation dentist to ensure that you are receiving the best care. Everyone deserves proper dental care and a chance at the smile they have always desired.
