Experience Dentistry Free From Stress And Anxiety

Various options for anesthetic and sedation are available to ensure your comfort during dental procedures, effectively alleviating pain and discomfort. A combination of methods can be utilized to provide comprehensive coverage tailored to your specific needs and treatment plan, guided by the professional judgment of your dentist or specialist.

Sedation Options Sedation options can generally be categorized into three main groups:

  1. Local Anesthesia: This method involves numbing the specific area where the procedure will take place. By carefully administering a local anesthetic, we ensure that the targeted region of your mouth is temporarily desensitized. While you may experience pressure during the procedure, you should not feel any pain.
  2. Conscious Sedation: Through the use of prescription medication, laughing gas, or intravenous administration, conscious sedation induces a state of relaxation while allowing you to remain awake and aware. This approach is commonly combined with local anesthesia to maximize comfort and effectiveness.
  3. Sleep Dentistry: General anesthesia or deep sedation can induce a near or complete unconscious state during the procedure. Patients who undergo this form of sedation often report minimal or no recollection of the experience. Afterward, you may remain relaxed and drowsy, requiring assistance with transportation and supervision following the procedure.

These options ensure a comfortable and stress-free experience, enhancing your overall dental care journey.

The Benefits Of Dental Sedation

Sedation and sleep dentistry are useful options that help us serve patients from all walks of life with many different challenges to overcome. Some of the benefits of sedation dentistry are as follows:

Overcoming Dental Anxiety

Dental anxiety should never prevent you from receiving the necessary treatment. Whether your anxiety is mild or severe, it’s important to voice your concerns. We are here to support you and ensure you receive the care you need without unnecessary worry or fear.

Make Time Fly By

For lengthy procedures that require you to remain seated with your mouth open, sedation can help you stay relaxed and comfortable. The time will pass quickly, and you may even feel as though the procedure is over in an instant, especially with IV sedation.

Tailored for Your Personal Needs

Are you troubled by a sensitive gag reflex, chronic restlessness, or restless leg syndrome? Do you find that local anesthesia is ineffective for you? Sedation can be incredibly beneficial in these situations, making treatment accessible and comfortable for everyone.

Frequently Asked Questions

Be assured that we take the time to speak with each of our patients to thoroughly understand their medical history. This allows us to determine if sedation dentistry is the appropriate choice for your needs.

Sedation can induce a rapid feeling of drowsiness and relaxation. Some individuals may notice a mild tingling sensation. Following the procedure, you might experience mild amnesia and not recall anything from the treatment.

Most sedation dentistry options don’t actually involve patients being put to sleep. Rather sedation dentistry allows patients to feel extremely relaxed. You may not even remember any of the procedure once it’s over.

When sedation is administered, we emphasize the importance of having a friend or family member accompany you to drive you home and provide companionship. It’s crucial to allow the sedation to wear off completely and give your body ample rest before resuming your regular routine.

If you’ve been sedated for your dental procedure we would advise you to take the day off to recover. A good rule of thumb is to set aside 24-hours before returning to your regular routine. The time it takes for any drowsiness to pass will depend on what kind of sedation you receive but may be somewhere between 2 to 8 hours.
