If your dental anxiety has been keeping you from getting dental care, our sedation dentistry treatments may be exactly what you need.
What is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry encompasses treatments that can be administered prior to an appointment to help patients relax throughout any procedure. Sedation dentistry treatments can include oral conscious sedation, nitrous oxide, and IV sedation. Patients can choose which method of sedation based on their individual needs, and the level of sedation they want to achieve.
Benefits of Sedation Dentistry
- With sedation dentistry, patients can relax throughout any procedure.
- Sedation dentistry is a safe and effective way to make your dental appointment even more comfortable and stress-free.
- Patients who choose sedation dentistry can still answer questions, but feel completely calm and at ease. Many patients don’t remember their procedure that was causing them anxiety after the procedure is over.
- Dentists are able to perform more dental work in less time when their patients are totally relaxed.
Sedation dentistry is available before any procedure. The effects of the sedation will wear off quickly when the appointment is over, but if you choose IV sedation or oral conscious sedation, you may need to arrange for a loved one to drive you to and from your appointment.
