Sedation Dentistry

For patients with dental anxiety

Even though we have gentle dentists in Lincoln, NE, we understand that previous dental trauma can cause huge anxiety or dental phobia. It is because of this that we sought a sedation dentistry solution that would most benefit our patients and help tame those fears. As far as disadvantages are concerned, there is really only one: as with almost any form of sedation dentistry, you will not be able to drive yourself to and from the procedure and you will be restricted on your activities for the remainder of the day.

Most of our patients report going home and sleeping much of the day, about four to five hours. This means taking off of work for the rest of the day after your procedure and just taking it easy at home.
Even with that minor downside, overall Triazolam for sedation dentistry is an easy and extremely safe option. If you have a dental anxiety or dental phobia, call our office today to schedule an appointment! We would love to meet with you and have the pleasure of assisting you with your dental health.

Preventative Care for Adults:

We can avoid nearly all invasive dental procedures with regular examinations and cleanings. One appointment at our office will include the following:

  • We will first spend some time talking with you and determining what your goals are for your smile, current oral health habits, and any areas of change or discomfort you are experiencing.
  • We will examine your bite and the health of your teeth and gums. Only necessary x-rays will be taken (usually once a year) to ensure there are not any dental problems lurking in between teeth where we are unable to see. X-rays also show us your bone to make sure it is at a healthy level to support your teeth.
  • A regular prophylaxis (cleaning) will be performed once it  is determined that bone and tissues are healthy. If they are not, other options will be discussed with your hygienist and doctor to determine an excellent course of treatment; sometimes a deeper cleaning is required.
  • The doctor will also perform an oral cancer screening when he or she completes the examination.
