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!

Overcome your anxiety with sedation dental treatments in Yadkinville

Overcome Your Anxiety with Sedation Dental Treatments in Yadkinville Area

Routine dental visits are crucial to preventing health issues with your teeth and gums. While not everyone is a fan of the dentist, people with dental anxiety often put off treatment even when they are dealing with pain and sensitivity in the mouth. Dr. Virtue offers various sedation dental treatments to help patients confront their fears.

Sedation dentistry for all levels of anxiety

Whether you need help getting through an advanced procedure such as tooth extraction, or you can’t even stomach the thought of routine cleaning, Virtue Dental Care can provide you relief so you can relax in the dental chair. Nitrous oxide has long been the standard protocol for helping patients deal with their phobia, and Dr. Virtue can provide it for any treatment, including routine hygiene visits. Nitrous oxide puts you into a relaxed, sometimes euphoric state, but you will still be conscious and aware of your surroundings and able to respond to instructions. Nitrous oxide is easily reversible using oxygen, and you will be able to drive yourself home without worry.

Oral conscious sedation is reserved for more extreme cases of anxiety, and because of its lingering effects, you will need someone to give you a ride home. With oral conscious sedation, you will be alert but relatively unaware of what’s happening. The drug will erase all feelings of anxiety and discomfort, and many patients will feel like they have woken up from a dream once it wears off.

The importance of maintaining your oral health

Once they’ve started, dental health issues will continue to progress. Many of the infections associated with tooth decay and gum disease can spread throughout your body, and they are linked with serious health issues, such as heart disease, Alzheimer’s, sleep apnea, and more. In some cases, painful infections can be life threatening if they aren’t addressed promptly.
