Find Relief from Dental Anxiety

Sedation dentistry can help you finally get comfortable in the dentist’s chair

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Most people do not look forward to extensive dental work, but for some a simple routine teeth cleaning appointment can create severe dental anxiety. That’s why DIIMI offers several methods of sedation dentistry in Sterling Heights, MI. This allows you to relax and get the care you need. Whether your dental anxiety levels are mild or severe, we have a solution to meet your needs:

Intravenous (IV) conscious sedation

This is most effective way to manage anxiety. Sedative medications are continuously administered via IV for ultimate comfort. You will seem to have slept through the procedure with no lasting memory of your visit.

Nitrous oxide

A colorless gas, nitrous oxide is breathed in through a nose mask and produces an almost immediate feeling of relaxtion which dissipates when the mask is removed.

Local anesthetic

 The proper local anesthetic is used to ensure the area is numb for maximum comfort.

What Causes Dental Anxiety?

Feeling anxious about dental work is nothing to be ashamed of. DIIMI has worked with thousands of patients who were able to conquer their fears and get the beautiful, healthy smile they deserve with the help of sedation dentistry. Factors that can contribute to dental anxiety include:

  • Fear of needles or dental drills
  • Severe gag reflex
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Low pain threshold
  • Complex dental procedures
  • Negative past experiences with a dentist
