Your safety is our concern
The FDA has advised ‘vulnerable’ groups - pregnant and lactating women; women trying to conceive; fetuses, infants and younger kids; those with neurological or kidney issues; and those allergic to mercury – to avoid dental amalgam. We take this advice very seriously. That’s why we consider mercury-free smiles as a priority!

Oral conscious sedation eases patient anxiety in Yadkinville

Fear of the dentist is common. For some patients, the anxiety is so great they avoid care altogether, which leads to more dental problems. Patients can find relief knowing oral conscious sedation is available to ease stress while ensuring dental health. Located in Yadkinville, Dr. William Virtue of Virtue Dental Care offers forms of sedation as well as NuCalm to make your dental visit a positive one.

Oral Conscious Sedation in Yadkinville Area

Oral conscious sedation

Oral conscious sedation takes about an hour to be effective. Prior to the dental appointment, the patient takes a pill prescribed by the dentist. Once the medication takes effect, the patient will be relaxed, calm, and drowsy, but awake, during the procedure. The effects of the medication usually take a few hours to wear off, meaning you will need someone to transport you to and from your appointment. Benefits of oral conscious sedation include the following:

  • Patients are calm and relaxed so their fears are diminished.
  • The medication leaves patients conscious so they can communicate with the dentist.
  • Patients usually have little recollection of the dental procedures, which helps ease their anxieties for future dental appointments.


Drug-free, side-effect free NuCalm to ease your stress

NuCalm is a drug-free form of relaxation dentistry. Instead of drugs, NuCalm uses supplements, stimulation, calming music, and eye masks to reduce anxieties by transitioning the brain into a feeling of deep relaxation such as that found in the first phase of natural sleep. NuCalm has no reported side effects. Other benefits include the following:

  • Drug-free
  • Easy to administer
  • Effective within a few minutes
