What is Sedation Dentistry or Sleep Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry is a way to help people that may have anxiety or fears associated with dental procedures. A calm and relaxed state can be achieved through the use of carefully administered sedatives. Sedation dentistry will allow you to get the dental care you may have been avoiding. If your fear and nervousness about going to the dentist seems to be above normal, you should explore your options with sedation dentistry.
What kinds of options are available?
Sedatives can be administered in various degrees and doses depending on your needs. Some individuals may need to be only minimally sedated, which will sufficiently lull the patient into a relaxed state. For more significant sedation needs, we can administer a deeper dose which will reduce consciousness and may mean that you won’t remember the procedure at all. We can determine the best method for you and your needs.
Is sedation dentistry right for me?
Sedation dentistry may be right for you if you:
- Are an individual who is panicked or stressed at the idea of dental work
- Have refused necessary dental treatment because you are afraid
- Avoid routine oral health care
