Do you feel nervous when you think about visiting the dentist? Do the sounds and sights of a dental office make you feel anxious? If so, we have a solution for you! Dr. Janice Hall Ormsby is pleased to provide sedation dentistry in Ithaca, New York, for an anxiety-free dental experience. Sedation dentistry involves using safe, mild sedatives to help you feel calmer and more relaxed during your dental visit.
Our most common form of sedation dentistry at East Shore Dental Care is known as oral conscious sedation. For this type of sedation, you will simply take a prescribed sedative pill before your treatment at our office; our dentist will give you specific instructions on when to take the pill. By the time you come to our office for your appointment, you will feel relaxed and at ease. As the name implies, this is a form of conscious sedation, which means that you will not be unconscious; however, you may feel so comfortable that you fall asleep during your treatment. Our experienced dental team will carefully monitor you throughout the treatment to ensure your comfort and safety. Be certain to have a friend or family member available to drive you to and from your visit at our office.
Isn’t it great to know you can relax at the dentist? If you are interested in learning more about anxiety-free sedation dentistry, please call us today at 607-273-3151.
