Relieving Dental Anxiety

We’ll Soothe Your Dental Anxiety

Dental Anxiety Solutions at Biggers Family Dentistry Read Transcript


Sometimes a dental procedure, whether it is getting a tooth filled or a tooth removed, can make you uncomfortably anxious. Maybe you’ve had a bad dental experience in the past, or the sight of dental tools bothers you, or you have a sensitive mouth.

Call Biggers Family Dentistry, Midlothian, VA dentist at 804-621-2199. We’ll discuss your dental anxiety with you so we can address it when you come in for your appointment.

Caring Dental Staff and Sedation Soothe Your Nerves

Dr. Hood Biggers and his compassionate team have plenty of experience in relieving dental anxiety. They’ll take extra time and care with you to make sure you feel comfortable and relaxed while you are in our patient chair. Dr. Biggers has even been known to sing a tune or two during procedures. It’s hard to feel anxious when your dentist is serenading you!

Even the caring atmosphere found in our Midlothian, VA dentist office may not be enough to put your dental anxiety completely to rest. Fortunately, Dr. Biggers offers anxiety-relieving dental sedation options. The two primary ones are nitrous oxide, often known as laughing gas, and oral sedatives.

Nitrous Oxide Is Safe, Common Sedation

Nitrous oxide is one of the most common options for relieving dental anxiety. That’s because it works so well for so many people. You simply wear a small mask that safely delivers enough nitrous oxide to relax you for your procedure. You’ll feel happy but not “out of it.”

Its benefits include:

  • Dr. Biggers can easily adjust the amount of nitrous oxide sedation so he can readily respond to your level of anxiety.
  • Nitrous oxide takes effect within minutes of administering it and wears off within minutes after your procedure. So you can drive yourself home from your appointment.
  • It’s so safe we can even give it to children.

Oral Sedation Offers Deeper Level of Relaxation

For a deeper level of relaxation, Dr. Biggers can provide you with an oral sedative to take an hour or so before your procedure. You’ll arrive at our Midlothian, VA dentist office relaxed and stay that way throughout your procedure. Because you’ll be drowsy, you’ll need to arrange a ride home.

Dr. Biggers will help you determine which anxiety-relieving option will best suit your needs. And whether you opt for nitrous oxide or oral sedation, he and the Biggers Family Dentistry staff will carefully monitor your response.
