Will my dental procedure hurt?
You have no reason to worry - our practice philosophy is centered around patient comfort and care. We will go out of our way to make your visit relaxing and as comfortable as possible. Our patients often comment that the fear and anticipation of the pain was way worse than the procedure itself.
If you don’t like shots, you’re in good hands; Dr. Mann is a master at dental injections, and many patients say it was the most comfortable they’ve ever experienced. Once your mouth is numb, you shouldn’t feel anything, but we’ll continue to check in with you to make sure you are comfortable.
We know that even with gentle, attentive care dentistry is a challenge for many people. For this reason, we provide several stress-reducing sedation options. Nitrous oxide is a gas that’s inhaled through a small nasal mask and will produce a dreamy, euphoric sensation that lasts only for the duration of your treatment.
If you would like a deeper level of relaxation, Dr. Mann can prescribe anti-anxiety medication that you take before your appointment to keep you calm and comfortable. For highly anxious patients, we can offer IV sedation that will put you in a deep state of relaxation.
Please don’t let anxiety about your procedure prevent you from getting the care you need. Call us today to learn more about sedation options at our Manchester, NH dental office.
