Have you been avoiding the dentist because you are fearful? For some people, going to the dentist is put off because of different reasons, and often it is because of a variety of fears and/or due to a bad past experience. The good news is that sedation dentistry is available, and it can make the difference between reduced oral health and a healthy smile.

Benefits of Good Oral Health

Your mouth is more than just a place to hold your teeth. In reality, the health of your mouth, teeth, and gums can affect the health of your entire body. The bacteria from gum disease and decay can travel through your body and contribute to diseases such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Respiratory issues
  • Body inflammation
  • Diabetes
  • Osteoporosis

Sedation Equals Relaxation

If you have been putting off dental visits, Dr. Bruce Trimble is our sedation dentist in Menomonie, WI and he can help make your visit much more comfortable. Whether you are fearful of drills and needles, have a sensitive gag reflex, are unable to feel numb from local anesthetic, have apprehension from a previous dental visit, or need complex dental work, our office offers a variety of sedation dentistry that can help you deal with the stress.

Sedation Methods

Our staff will help determine which type of sedation is best for you and your situation. We offer a variety of methods including:

  • Oral sedation- you will consume a pill before you come in for your appointment, which will relax you for your treatment
  • Intravenous sedation- this is administered through a vein and will result in extreme relaxation so that you do not remember the procedure
  • Nitrous oxide- a gas that kills the feeling of pain
