Worried about going to the dentist?
Don’t Be. Relax all the way through your next dental appointment.
WHAT IS SEDATION DENTISTRY?
No matter how gentle we promise to be, we still see patients who are terrified of any kind of dental work. Even a simple checkup can make people tremble with fear.
Oral hygiene and dental care are essential to your body’s health. We want to ensure that you get the treatment you need – without the anxiety you would normally feel during a visit.
Sedation dentistry is a safe, comfortable way to have your teeth cared for. With sedation dentistry, as it’s commonly called, you won’t feel any pain or discomfort – in fact, you might not even remember the treatment you’ve received!
However, sedation is not like general anesthesia, which is extreme and unnecessary for lesser dental procedures. Also referred to as “oral conscious sedation,” you’re given a pill to take an hour before your appointment, and then an additional pill or pills once you arrive, depending on your level of anxiety. Nitros Oxide, or laughing gas, is also available if you’d prefer that form of sedation.
Your heart rate and oxygen levels are carefully monitored throughout the entire procedure. Before you know it, you’ll be ready to go home – with a healthy mouth and a bright smile!
