If you avoid visits to the dentist because of fear, discomfort at long appointments, lack of time for multiple procedures, or because you don't respond well to numbing or you gag easily, you need to experience Ayan Dentistry. Dr. Ayan is sensitive to her patients' concerns. Every member of our team is trained to provide gentle, accommodating service with a priority on the unique needs of each patient. Our patient coordinator will help you schedule appointments and make financial arrangements.
Sedation dentistry has changed the way many people feel about dental visits. With safe, effective medications, Dr. Ayan will relieve your anxiety, discomfort, and fear. She can also perform many procedures in one or two appointments, rather than a long string of one-hour visits that would not fit into your busy schedule.
Local Anesthesia - With a refined technique, Dr. Ayan provides precise injections of local anesthetic. Her method is as gentle and comfortable as possible. Many of our patients remark they didn't feel a thing during the administration.
Nitrous Oxide - Also called laughing gas, nitrous oxide is inhaled through a facemask. The effects cause light sedation, just enough to eliminate stress and pain. When we stop administering nitrous oxide, patients can immediately return to daily activities.
DEEPER SEDATION (requires an escort)
Oral Sedation - A sedative, such as Halcyon, taken by mouth just prior to a dental procedure, provides a little deeper form of relaxation for anxious patients. After the visit, you'll feel drowsy and will need a driver to take you home, where you'll rest for the remainder of the day.
Oral Conscious Sedation - Dr. Ayan can combine nitrous oxide with an oral sedative to promote an even greater calming effect. You'll remain alert enough to respond to our team's instructions, but you may not remember the visit on the following day. Again, you'll need a driver to escort you home.
IV Sedation - We work with a licensed nurse anesthetist and oral surgeon to provide intravenous sedation to patients with significant dental phobia or physical discomfort. IV, or intravenous sedation is safe and we can control the amount of medication you receive.
Which Type is Right for Me?
At your initial consultation, Dr. Ayan will talk with you about your concerns and medical history, then discuss options that would best suit your situation. She'll provide all the information and counsel you need, so you'll make an informed decision with which you can feel completely confident.
