Will my treatment procedure hurt?
Patient comfort is a top priority at Peak Dental Health. Dr. Nelson has invested in some of the most advanced dental technology that is designed to make patients feel more comfortable. State-of-the-art equipment can also help procedures to proceed more efficiently, and even accelerate the healing process in many cases. He also uses dental anesthetics to ensure that you can't feel anything during your procedure, and he has equipment that allows him to deliver pain-free injections.
Patients who may feel fearful about dental procedures or visiting the dental office can relax with options for sedation dentistry, depending on your needs.
Sedation Dentistry Options:
- Nitrous Oxide: Breathable gas that is the mildest form of sedation we offer. You can return to normal activities right away after a procedure with nitrous.
- Oral Sedation: Deeper relaxation is delivered with a pill taken before your procedure — this sedation is for more complex treatment procedures or patients with moderate anxiety. You will need transportation arranged to and from our office if you use oral sedation.
- IV Sedation: This is the deepest level of relaxation we offer. Medication is delivered intravenously and can be adjusted as needed throughout treatment. You will need transportation and have planned recovery time when you choose IV sedation.
Dr. Nelson is happy to discuss your concerns with you before any procedures to create a plan for you to receive the treatment you need in the manner that is most comfortable for you.
