Sedation Dentistry – IV, Oral, Conscious
What is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry involves using either IV, oral or conscious sedation to make your visits with us more comfortable. In some cases, sedation is necessary for more complicated or invasive procedures. For others, sedation helps them to stay calm while having dental work done in our office. Sedation dentistry is ideal for patients with severe anxiety and phobias over going for dental treatment.
Why is Sedation Dentistry needed?
Sedation treatment allows us to work on your dental care more easily and without breaks or problems. This is why sedation dentistry is essential for more invasive procedures and complicated treatments. Sedation options are just as beneficial to patients who are nervous about visiting the dentist and who have put off receiving care because of these fears. You will find that sedation dentistry helps you to relax even during more complicated procedures.
What makes you a good candidate for Sedation Dentistry?
Before having any type of sedation administered, we will go over your health and medical history to determine if it’s right for you. Depending on the types of medications you’re taking as well as any medical conditions you have, sedation dentistry may not be right for you. In some cases, you may have to stop taking a certain medication before having sedation administered. We can discuss all of your options with you during your consultation appointment with our team.
What can you expect during Sedation Dentistry?
Before sedation is administered, you’ll come in for a complete consultation and exam. We review your medical and health history to ensure you’re healthy enough to undergo sedation. For most patients who want or need sedation dentistry, they can safely and easily have it done. We monitor sedation at all times that it’s being administered, so you can feel safe while in our office. Sedation dentistry is ideal for both pediatric and adult patients looking for an easier way to receive their routine dental care.
