Relieving Dental Anxiety 3 | Tocci Dental Associates - Wellesley, MA Dentist

We hope that your Spring is off to a fantastic start and that you have plenty of reasons to smile! We’d also like to take a moment to remind you that this season of renewal is also a great time to take charge of your oral health! Don’t worry if it has been a while since your last appointment, or if you feel any anxiety at all about scheduling your visit. Here at our Wellesley, MA dentist’s office, we have found that sedation dentistry works really well when it comes to helping amazing patients just like you to relax. So, let us know what your concerns are when you contact us, and we’ll take care of everything.

Besides putting your fears to rest, sedation dentistry has many other surprising benefits.  Keep reading to hear all about them, and hopefully, we’ll soon be seeing your smiling face in one of our chairs. With a dentist who really cares about you (Dr. Tocci!) at the helm, sedation dentistry truly can be a life-changing experience!

Time Passes Faster With Sedation

It’s a fact that sedation can make the time required to work on your teeth and gums pass a lot more quickly. Also, sedation can make it so you have very little memory of your procedure.

Sedation Makes It Easier To Get More Than One Treatment

Dr. Tocci has discovered that there’s typically a limit to how much a patient can handle before it’s been simply too much dental care for one visit. But, with the help of sedation, you can get all the care you need, even multiple procedures, all at once. This will save you time and money in the end.

Your Gag Reflex Can Be Handled With Sedation

Here’s the thing: some patients don’t like the thought of weird dental tools and someone else’s hands going into their mouths, and this can cause a subconscious gagging reaction that slows down or interrupts our plans for treatment. When you set you up with sedation dentistry, your gag reflex will be relaxed along with the rest of your body, and we will be able to do what we do well: boost the health and appearance of your smile.

Sedation Will Allow You To Sit Still

Even mild levels of sedation can help patients sit still long enough to get the care they deserve. Sometimes folks with disabilities can really benefit from this kind of assistance. Be sure to let us know if you have any special needs to take into consideration.

Sensitivity Is Numbed By Sedation Dentistry

If you have teeth or gums that are so sensitive you can’t handle even the simplest of dental treatments, sedation can help with that too. In the old days of dentistry, you would have had to simply put up with it.

Oral Sedation & Nitrous Oxide Are Two Great Options

If you have not yet had any experience with sedation dentistry, we promise to make it easy for you. Here’s the deal: oral sedation comes through a pill that you swallow beforehand. This level of sedation dentistry will get you to a sleep-like state while leaving you conscious. However, you won’t remember much about your visit when it is over. Just be sure to line up a ride!

Nitrous Oxide is also known as laughing gas and is administered by Dr. Tocci safely through a mask. This is a mild sedative that works well for patients of all ages and the effects wear off within minutes of your procedure’s completion.
