At O2 Dental Group it is our priority to make sure you receive safe, high-quality dental care in a welcoming environment. Our dentists and staff are always kind and gentle, but some patients experience anxiety when faced with any dental visit. We want every patient's visit to our Wilmington dentist office to be as comfortable as possible!
Quality dental care should not hurt, which is why we provide a variety of sedation dentistry options that our patients can trust. You can relax during your visit as our dentists always use the latest treatment techniques to ensure your peace of mind.
Conscious Oral Sedation
If you suffer from dental anxiety, Dr. Lydia or Dr. O may recommend conscious oral sedation. Anti-anxiety pills are designed to tone down activity in the parts of your brain that cause you to feel nervous or afraid. Remember, if you take oral sedation, you cannot drive after your appointment. Make sure you have a friend or family member pick you up and drive you home following your appointment.
Dental anxiety can prevent many patients from visiting the dentist for checkups and much-needed dental work. If dental appointments make you anxious, Dr. Lydia or Dr. O can administer laughing gas to help you feel more at ease during your visit. At O2 Dental Group of Wilmington, laughing gas is administered using a mask, allowing you to feel more at ease within minutes. If you are feeling anxious about an upcoming dental treatment, ask about nitrous oxide. Most of our patients are good candidates for this treatment, including our pediatric dental patients.
