Expert Care from Kailua-Kona Dentist Carter Yokoyama

Sedation Dentistry2-minWhile the practice of Dr. Carter Yokoyama always strives to treat its guests as best as possible, Dr. Yokoyama understands that some patients feel nervous about dental visits.

In order to ensure peace of mind for these and other patients, Dr. Yokoyama provides the latest in conscious sedation dentistry at his Kailua-Kona practice. These dental sedation techniques will help keep patients at ease and allow them to receive dental treatment without stress or discomfort.

Overcoming Dental Anxiety

A number of people experience some degree of uneasiness or anxiety when it comes to dental visits. This could be due to a fear of potential discomfort or a general worry about what certain dental treatments will entail.

Dr. Yokoyama has crafted a relaxed and comfortable dental spa atmosphere in order to help set his guests at ease when they visit. The personal attention that each guest receives combined with fine amenities and comforts will allow guests to feel deeply serene from the time they enter to the time they leave. In addition to this, though, Dr. Yokoyama also provides conscious dental sedation techniques because he wants each guest to come away with a positive and anxiety-free experience that leaves them looking and feeling great.

How Conscious Sedation Dentistry Works

Sedation Dentistry-minThe conscious sedation dentistry techniques offered at our Kailua-Kona practice will reduce stress and fear but will not render patients unconscious. Dr. Yokoyama will determine the best method of dental sedation to use in order to meet your needs and ensure that you are as relaxed as possible. This may involve the use of nitrous oxide for sedation purposes or even the use of an oral sedative to promote a calm state.

While you are undergoing sedation dentistry, you will remain conscious and responsive during dental treatment. You will, however, feel no discomfort or distress while undergoing any sort of cosmetic dentistry or restorative dentistry treatment.
