With sedation dentistry, your dental visits will be more efficient and effective. And even better, you won’t remember the sights, smells and sounds.
Sedation dentistry is a way for you to get the dentistry you want and need while you are completely relaxed and at ease. Sedation dentistry refers to a variety of methods available to your dentist to make your visit more comfortable and relaxing. This is accomplished by choosing a medication based on each individual patient’s needs. If you just need to take the edge off, there are a variety of medications taken by mouth that can work for you. If you need a more profound effect, there are medications that can be delivered by mouth or by IV. With sedation dentistry you don’t have to be fully knocked out, however, you won’t be aware of the sights, sounds and smells that can trigger your anxiety and fear. Sedation dentistry is simply the most comfortable way to have dentistry done.
