Fear-Free Dentistry in Cape Coral: Every Patient Deserves Comfort

It’s common for people to feel nervous about going to the dentist. Dr. Kari Mann understands this better than most dentists because her own dad suffers from dental anxiety. For some people, dental treatment can be so stressful or intimidating that they completely avoid it. Whether you’ve had negative past dental experiences or are worried you need more extensive treatment, our caring, compassionate team wants to change this narrative. In fact, we strive to deliver dental care that is more comfortable than you ever thought possible! When you visit our practice, you won’t see any of the clinical equipment that creates anxiety for many dental patients. From our soothing living room-like lobby to calming décor and colors, our office is focused on helping patients feel relaxed. We also offer several types of sedation dentistry in Cape Coral, FL and will help you choose the best option to address your level of dental anxiety and the procedures you need.

Nitrous oxide sedation

Commonly referred to as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a safe and highly effective mild sedative, even for children. The colorless, odorless gas is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose. You breathe normally and the effects of nitrous oxide are felt within minutes. While it likely won’t make you laugh, nitrous oxide slows down your nervous system, so you’ll feel less inhibited and may experience euphoria or lightheadedness. After your procedure is complete, the nitrous oxide is turned off, the side effects wear off quickly and you breathe in pure oxygen for a few minutes. Although you may have little memory about your procedure, nitrous oxide isn’t associated with any lingering side effects, so you can drive yourself home.

Oral sedation is a good option for mild to moderate levels of dental fear. Oral sedatives called benzodiazepines work by decreasing activity in the parts of your brain that control fear and anxiety. It’s common to take one pill an hour before a procedure, although some patients also take a pill the night before to reduce worrying about treatment. During your procedure, we monitor all your vitals to ensure your safety. Although you’re awake, you may forget parts of the procedure or the entire experience due to amnesic effects of the drug. Because sedatives can impair your judgment and reaction times and the effects can linger, a designated person needs to drive you to and from our office.

Enjoy A Healthy Smile And Life With Cape Coral Sedation Dentistry

If you’re counting the hours until your next dentist appointment or feeling anxious about having dental work done, dental anesthesia may be the perfect solution. In addition to alleviating dental fear, sedation dentistry makes it easier to get complex procedures, such as full mouth dental implants. Avoiding professional dental care can cause small problems to turn into major ones that require more extensive work. Tooth decay, gum disease and tooth loss can affect your ability to eat, drink, speak and socialize, while advanced gum disease can turn into a whole body health challenge. If you’re postponing or avoiding getting dental care, we encourage you to call Kari Mann Dental Studio and ask about sedation dentistry in Cape Coral, FL. Sedation dentistry coupled with our gentle touch will enable you to receive the relaxing dental care you need for a healthier, happier smile for life.
