It's completely natural to feel anxious about visiting the dentist, but Chattanooga Family Dentistry can help you relax. Dr. Andrew Lunn and our team offer three types of sedation—oral conscious sedation, nitrous oxide, and IV—to soothe all levels of anxiety. These options can ensure you experience little to no pain and feel relaxed throughout your care.View transcript
[00:00:09.325] We offer conscious sedation here at this practice. [00:00:12.292] A lot of patients come in here with a lot of anxieties due to past dental problems. [00:00:17.983] A lot of people come in here with gagging problems. [00:00:20.280] They cannot tolerate anything done in their mouth. [00:00:22.783] Or they have a physical condition in which they can't sit still. [00:00:26.275] And so we have to take them to a comfortable and safe level [00:00:29.376] to get their work done. [00:00:30.625] If you ask any of my patients that have had sedation dentistry, [00:00:33.225] they have come here, they have remembered waking up [00:00:36.675] taking their pills. [00:00:37.775] They might remember showing up here, and the next thing you know, [00:00:40.259] they woke up at home going, how did I get here? [00:00:42.483] That's the kind of reaction you want to have, [00:00:44.976] is they were asleep throughout the procedure [00:00:47.133] and didn't remember anything of the procedure. [00:00:50.033] That's the best benefit, [00:00:51.410] especially if they've had some trauma in the past [00:00:53.925] and we can provide that for them [00:00:55.916] so they can relax and they can have their dentistry done [00:00:58.675] and feel confident that they can have this taken care of.
