Do You Have

Dental Anxiety? We Can Help.

If you typically have anxiety when it comes to visiting the dentist than you might want to consider a sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry involves the use of medication to help you stay calm and relaxed during dental treatments. Sometimes called sleep dentistry, Sedation dentistry is a great option that can erase any fear, anxiety or panic a person might have associated with going to the dentist. It’s important to understand the different types of sedation dentistry, so our dentist can help you choose the ideal type for the procedure you’re scheduled to undergo.

You may need sedation dentistry if you have any of the following problems:

Types of Dental Sedation

Laughing gas is the most common form of sedation in the dental care industry. It is also referred to as inhalation analgesia. While it does not knock you out completely, it does an excellent job at minimizing your anxiety about a dental treatment procedure. This form of sedation has been proven very safe. It can be used with some local anesthetic injections to enhance effectiveness. However, this gas can also be administered by a machine to spare you the discomfort caused by an injection.
IV Sedation is available in several varieties. The most common is known as Twilight. With this form of sedation, you remain conscious but with very little awareness of your surroundings. The sedation makes you feel sleepy, and there’s a high chance you won’t remember anything about the procedure once it is complete. Nonetheless, it is easy for the dentist to wake you up if he needs to.
Oral sedation generally involves taking of Halcion pill about one hour before a dental procedure to help you to achieve minimal to moderate sedation. With one pill, you’ll get minimal sedation. The pill won’t put you to sleep. It will only make you drowsy. For moderate sedation, you may need to take a larger dose. While this form of sedation is not supposed to knock you out, some people end up falling asleep during their treatment. However, a gentle shake is usually enough to wake them up.
General Anesthesia is perhaps the least common form of sedation in the dental care industry. You may need this form of sedation if you are undergoing complex oral surgery or you are resistant to other forms of sedation. If fear of pain has kept you from visiting the dentist for years, don’t worry, we can help! Sedation dentistry allows even the most nervous patients to have a tranquil dental experience, and you’ll be amazed at what it can do for you.
