Dr. Sandra Bennett provides sedation dentistry at her Gresham dental office for patients experiencing dental anxiety. There are many reasons a person may have dental anxiety and choose to have sedation for a dental procedure. Negative past experiences or embarrassment about current dental health are examples of what can contribute to this anxiety.
Dr. Bennett and her experienced team will always treat you with kindness and understanding. Many people feel anxious because they don’t understand or didn’t have their questions answered about their dental treatment or needs. You can be confident that Dr. Bennett will thoroughly explain your diagnosis and treatment options. Many patients have overcome their anxiety over time due to Dr. Bennett’s gentle touch and caring chair-side manner.
During your consultation, Dr. Bennett will explore the sedation options that would be best for you. Some options available are Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) and/or a prescribed oral medication you take at home before the procedure.
