Many patients suffer from dental anxiety and fear. Our dentist and team offer sedation dentistry to help you feel more at ease and receive the treatments you need without unnecessary stress. Sedation dentistry involves using medication to help you feel relaxed, calm and comfortable during your treatment. There are several types of sedation available, and before providing you with any sedation treatment, our dentist will meet with you one-on-one to discuss your options and determine which type of sedation is right for you. During this initial meeting, we will review your oral health needs, medical history, treatment options and comfort level in the dental office. Depending on your needs, we may recommend anything from a mild form of sedation to help you relax to a deeper sedation option that will make you fall asleep during your treatment.
Your comfort and safety are our top priorities, and we will monitor you closely throughout your appointment regardless of which type of sedation you receive. Our dentist may also provide you with instructions on how you can prepare to receive dental sedation and what you should do after your appointment. We may also request that you have someone available to drive you to and from our office to ensure your safety.
If you feel nervous about visiting the dentist, have had negative experiences at the dental office in the past, have difficulty getting numb or have a sensitive gag reflex, sedation dentistry could be an excellent option for you. Give us a call today to learn more and schedule your consultation!
