At Rebol Family Dentistry, we understand that visiting the dentist’s office can be an anxiety-inducing experience for some patients. Dental anxiety is a common issue that we take very seriously. We want you to know that you can look forward to visiting our office. Our staff works hard to create a warm and welcoming environment for our patients to receive their necessary dental care. If you experience dental anxiety, we can also offer sedation dentistry options to ensure your experience in the dental chair is a positive one. Learn more about our sedation dentistry options below.
Sedation Dentistry in Asheville, NC
Drs. Rebol and Sparks are experienced general dentists in Asheville, NC. If you experience dental anxiety, our doctors are happy to walk you through what to expect during your dental procedures. All of our team members are happy to answer any questions you might have before, during, or after your appointment.
Our sedation dentistry options include the use of local anesthetics to numb affected areas during procedures. We also offer laughing gas, or nitrous oxide, which is a mild sedative that keeps patients awake and aware while still calm and relaxed. The effects of laughing gas wear off as soon as the mask is removed. We may also offer you oral sedation medication if applicable to your procedure. Each patient’s sedative options are tailored to their unique needs and medical history. We will ensure that whatever sedation option you receive is both safe and effective.
Dealing With Dental Anxiety
We would hate to see our patients suffer from putting off their necessary dental care due to dental anxiety. If you have had a previous bad experience in the dental chair at another dentist’s office, please let us know. We will do everything we can to ensure that your experience in our office is a positive one.
Patients are encouraged to bring a trusted friend along with them to their appointment if they would like to. Additionally, listening to music may also help noise-sensitive patients remain calm in the dental chair. Learn more about what to expect at your appointment before you schedule your appointment online. We look forward to seeing you soon.
