Good dental health is important to overall health, but there are some people who would do almost anything but sit down for an appointment. If anxiety or even phobia keeps you away from regular checkups, sedation dentistry from Ray McKinley DDS & Brittany McKinley-Holloway DDS — McKinley General, Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry in Shelby Township can help.
There are lots of reasons why people avoid the dentist. It may stem from a bad childhood experience or a fear of pain. It may be from concerns about X-rays or some other common dental procedure. Whatever it is, don’t put your dental health at risk by never going to the dentist.
Modern dentistry is safe and painless. If you’re concerned about something like X-rays, we can accommodate you. The important thing is to have regular checkups, and to have any dental health issues treated.
We have two types of sedation:
- Nitrous Oxide. Commonly called laughing gas, nitrous oxide has a long and successful history as a dental sedative. It works quickly and wears off quickly.
- Oral Conscious Sedation. You take a prescribed sedative in pill form an hour or so before your appointment (you’ll have specific instructions). You won’t sleep, but will be in a deeply relaxed state. Someone will have to drive you to and from our office.
