There are a variety of reasons why people may choose to receive sedation dentistry. For some, the idea of dental work is simply too anxiety-inducing to consider without sedation. Others have difficulty getting numb or have had traumatic dental experiences in the past that make them hesitant to return to the dentist. Additionally, sedation can be a good option for those who have a strong gag reflex or sensitive teeth.
Sedation dentistry refers to the use of medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. This treatment is generally safe, but as with any type of medical procedure, there are some risks involved. Patients should discuss these risks with our dentist prior to having any work done.
Our dentist and team will be monitoring you through the duration of your treatment to ensure your safety and comfort. Depending on the type of sedation you receive, we will also provide you with instructions on what to do before and after your appointment.
If you think sedation dentistry might help you receive the dental care you need, talk to our dentist about what options are available. We invite you to call our office today if you have any questions and to schedule an appointment.
