What Is Sedation Dentistry?
Occasionally a patient may become anxious and cannot relax during an office visit. As many as 30% of adults in America are afraid of needles. Sedation dentistry offers these dental patients a safe and effective alternative through sedation dentistry.
There are three forms of conscious sedation that allow a patient to relax and/or become sleepy. Forms of conscious sedation may involve nitrous oxide analgesia, taking an oral medication or receiving medication intravenously.
One of the benefits of sedation dentistry is that it eliminates movement during a periodontal or dental implant procedure. Sedation dentistry relaxes the patient and allows those who might avoid a dental visit a safe and anxiety-free alternative. If you are hesitant about scheduling your next visit, consider sedation dentistry. Ask us for more information, and we will be sure to put your mind at ease.

Dental sedation has proven immensely helpful in easing patient anxiety. If you suffer from this condition, you may have put off dental treatment for years. As a result, you may now be at risk for decay, or you may require extensive restorative treatment. Sedation dentistry allows you to receive the treatment you need without worry or stress. Thanks to our gentle and personalized care, you can restore your oral health and enjoy a beautiful, healthy smile.
