Dental anxiety is a common concern among many individuals, affecting a significant number of Americans, including those in Tolland, Willington, and Ellington. At Tolland Hill Family Dental, we understand that fear of the dentist can be a major obstacle in receiving necessary dental care. This is why we proudly offer sedation dentistry, a safe and effective solution for patients of all ages.

Understanding Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry is a technique used to provide a relaxing and anxiety-free experience for people undergoing dental treatment. It is ideal for patients who:

  • Fear dental procedures, pain, or needles
  • Have an aversion to the sights, sounds, and smells of a dental office
  • Experience a severe gag reflex
  • Undergo lengthy or complex procedures
  • Have physical or mental limitations that make sitting still challenging
  • Have had previous negative experiences at the dentist

Our Approach to Sedation Dentistry

At Tolland Hill Family Dental, our goal is to make every dental visit as comfortable and stress-free as possible. We offer sedation dentistry for a variety of procedures, from routine cleanings to more extensive treatments. Our experienced team uses a caring and gentle approach, always prioritizing your comfort and well-being.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation: A Safe and Effective Option

Nitrous oxide, often referred to as “laughing gas,” is a popular and time-tested sedation method. It is suitable for both children and adults, providing a painless and calm dental experience.

  • How it Works: Patients breathe in a colorless gas through a small nosepiece, quickly inducing a state of relaxation.
  • Communication During Treatment: Even under the effects of nitrous oxide, patients can still communicate with our dental team.
  • No Lasting Side Effects: One of the major benefits of nitrous oxide is that it wears off quickly, allowing patients to safely drive themselves home after the procedure.

The Benefits of Choosing Sedation Dentistry

  • Alleviates Anxiety: Sedation dentistry is an excellent solution for overcoming dental phobia, ensuring you receive the care you need.
  • Comfort During Treatment: Patients experience a more comfortable and relaxing dental visit, even during complex procedures.
  • Accessibility: We make sedation dentistry available to those with special needs or physical limitations, ensuring everyone has access to quality dental care.

What Our Patients Say

Never had I had so much attention paid to my whole mouth health. Performed mouth cancer checks and measured gum gaps (didn't know this was a thing). A lot of time with doctor, not just the hygienist. Explained everything they were doing and why.
Daniel Keener
The team at this office was very kind, understanding, patient and persistent in working with my child. She is highly anxious at the dentist and they took their time to help her through the experience. Would highly recommend them to others!
