Marble Falls sedation dentistry

If you are one of those people who gets tense just thinking about your next dental checkup, you may benefit from sedation dentistry offered here at Ritchie Dental Group.

Millions of people stress out when they have to see the dentist. Some of them would rather skip the dentist altogether than sit down for a checkup. Trust us, this is a bad idea: it puts your dental health at risk.

There are lots of reasons why people develop anxiety or phobia over dental care. Whatever it is, we want you to get the treatment you need, without needless anxiety.

We offer two types of sedation:

  • Nitrous Oxide. You also know this as laughing gas. Nitrous oxide has been used in dentistry for more than a century and is highly effective.
  • Oral conscious sedation. You take a sedative an hour or so before the appointment. You won’t sleep, but will be in a deeply relaxed state. When the appointment is over, someone will have to drive you home.

Whatever it is that stresses you about the dentist, we don’t want you to compromise your dental health by skipping checkups. Sedation dentistry from Ritchie Dental Group may be just for you. We have offices in Marble Falls & Brady, TX, and people come to us from Kingsland, and Meadowlakes for complete general and family dentistry. Schedule an appointment today!

Help Me, I’m Afraid Of The Dentist!

April 17, 2020

Filed under: Cosmetic Dentistry,Emergency,General Dentistry,Sedation Dentistry — Ritchie Dental Group @ 10:46 pm

Horseshoe Bay Sedation  Dentistry If you are afraid of your dentist, you are not alone. At Ritchie Dental Group, we encounter many nervous dental patients. How do we calm their fears, provide a comfortable dental environment, and earn lifelong patients?

1) We carefully explain the findings of the initial dental examination and thoroughly outline any recommended care. The consultation also includes a discussion about pain control including oral conscious sedation. This allows our dentistry patients to make educated decisions about their oral health and necessary dental procedures.

2) Dr. Greg Ritchie practices gentle, pain-free dentistry.  Dental treatment will not begin until you are numb. Keep in mind, however, that every dentistry patient reacts to numbing agents and sedation medications differently.

Speak up immediately if you start to feel discomfort. We will pause treatment, administer an additional analgesic and wait until it takes effect. At Ritchie Dental Group, we never rush dental treatment.

3) We provide many in-office amenities at Ritchie Dental Group which help our dental patients concentrate on something pleasant during dental treatment. Not every dental patient chooses sleep dentistry. Sometimes chemical-free diversions such as listening to your favorite music provide a distraction while letting you remain clear-headed.

At Ritchie Dental Group, we understand dental anxiety and will help you overcome it. To schedule a friendly consultation, call 830-693-8833 or visit http://www.ritchiedentalgroup.com/.

Relax. Your Teeth Will Thank You.

Most people have been warned about the physical effects of stress. Our doctors remind us to protect ourselves from the dangers of unmanaged stress by eating healthy, exercising regularly, and getting adequate sleep. At Ritchie Dental Group in Brady and Marble Falls, Dr. Ritchie advocates for his patients’ oral health and preventative dentistry.

Don’t try to relieve stress with overeating, over drinking, smoking, or uncontrolled spending. Stress that is not properly managed can impact the heart, nervous system, immune system, and digestive system. It can also affect—you guessed it—your teeth.

The obvious oral health dangers are teeth grinding, jaw clenching, smoking, and the eating too much sugar. But did you know that stress can also

  • intensify plaque generation,
  • trigger canker sores and
  • increase the risk of periodontal disease?

Another problem is that when people are under excessive stress, they often neglect basic oral hygiene and regular dental visits.

For some people, dental visits cause major anxiety. What if the thought of visiting a dentist sends your blood pressure through the roof? Talk to us about sedation dentistry.

If you’re concerned about the consequences stress can have on your teeth, book an appointment with the Ritchie Dental Group today. We offer a broad scope of preventative, restorative, and cosmetic dental services including sedation dentistry, general dentistry, porcelain veneers, and teeth whitening.

Relax. We can help you get the dental treatment you need. Call us today.

Oral Conscious Sedation Some  dental patients experience severe anxiety when visiting a dentist. At Ritchie Dental Group, in Marble Falls and Brady, we can help tame that anxious feeling. You can calmly keep your wellness routines of visiting the dentist twice a year and take care of any necessary treatments as well.

With oral conscious sedation, it is possible to relax during dental procedures instead of being tense and fearful. Oral sedation dentistry, relaxation dentistry, conscious sedation and anxiety-free dentistry are all terms used to describe this type of treatment. In addition to alleviating anxiety, oral conscious sedation can help Marble Falls  dental patients with a variety of conditions.

You may want to consider oral conscious sedation if you have any of the following issues:

  • Strong gag reflex
  • Fear of needles
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Fear and anxiety associated with dental treatment
  • Difficulty getting numb
  • A history of negative dental experiences
  • Trouble controlling body movement due to Parkinson’s disease, Cerebral Palsy or related condition
  • Need extensive dental treatment

If you have avoided dental treatment due to any of these factors, let us help you. We can give you information about sedation options so you can decide which one is right for you.

At Ritchie Dental Group, we offer general and family dentistry as well as cosmetic dental treatments. We do all we can to make your visit as comfortable as possible. Call us today to see if conscious sedation is right for you!
