To Help You Relax During Dental Treatment
Feel relaxed during your next dental treatment with the help of sedation dentistry.
Oral Sedation dentistry does not put you to sleep. It induces a sense of deep relaxation that enables you to feel comfortable while we carry out our work. However, Intravenous Sedation offered by our Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon for the removal of wisdom teeth may put you to sleep.
Just like other forms of sedation dentistry, IV sedation is designed to relax you and make you completely comfortable. IV sedation also eliminates your anxiety and pain. Although you may lie back in the dental chair with your eyes closed, you will not be asleep during your appointment and will still be able to respond to verbal cues from your dentist. Because you are completely relaxed, your dentist can accomplish more dentistry in less time. IV sedation can benefit you if you have a sensitive gag reflex or difficulty sitting in a dental chair for long periods of time. You’ll be so relaxed that you’ll be unaware of the sights, smells and sounds of the dental office. Patients remember little-to-nothing of their appointment by the next day.
Neglecting your dental care can lead to serious problems with your oral health. If anxiety has caused you to forgo a trip to the dentist, we invite you to contact us and discuss the many options available to help you feel more comfortable. We will happily customize a relaxation procedure for you so you can maintain your oral health without anxiety.
