Are you one of the many Americans who fears visiting the dentist? Millions of men and women in the U.S. actively avoid scheduling a dental appointment – even for a simple procedure like a cleaning or filling – because they experience a deep dread or anxiety regarding dentist’s office or treatment. At Gentle Dental Care in Tyler, TX, Dr. Keith Gerber welcomes patients to experience the difference that oral conscious sedation can make, turning what they expect to be a negative ordeal into a positive visit with a caring dentist.
Sit Back and Relax with Oral Sedation
Oral sedation is a proven effective and entirely safe way of helping patients relax in preparation for treatment in a medical or dental setting. Dr. Gerber will prescribe a medication to be taken before your appointment so that it can begin to take effect before treatment even starts. You’ll need a trusted friend or family member to drive you to our office to ensure your safety. By the time the sedation medicine has taken full effect, you’ll find that you feel completely relaxed and comfortable. Oral sedation often proves to be just what anxious, fearful patients need to find serenity and peace while they undergo their treatment.
Patients who benefit from oral sedation are those who are nervous about dental care, experience difficulty sitting or lying still for long periods of time, have a sensitive gag reflex, or have health problems that cause them discomfort in the dental chair. Dr. Gerber is always happy to explain your treatment to you in a way that is easy to understand so that you feel completely comfortable and confident in the care you are receiving. Our goal is to ensure your continued oral health and to make you feel like family from the moment you walk into our office.
