Sedation Dentistry

Does the thought of going to the dentist send shivers down your spine, in that case sedation dentistry is for you. With sedation dentistry dentists are able to create a safe, comfortable and relaxing dental experience for you. Dental sedatives like nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation and IV sedation are administered in mild, moderate or deep levels depending on the individual needs. Once the sedation is administered the patient will experience a sleep-like state that relaxes nerves and calms anxieties. It is also referred to as sleep dentistry and hailed as a perfect option for a patient who suffers from dental phobia.
If you experience sweaty palms when intending to fix a dental appointment, feel free to talk to your dentist about the sedation options available. After reviewing your medical history and current medications, they will help you find a sedation method that can work for your specific needs.
