Sedation is a method of completely relaxing your mind and body, allowing dental treatment to take place with minimal disturbance and discomfort. Many nervous patients find that sedation enables them to endure lengthy procedures, feeling as though the time passed in just a few minutes.
The sedatives themselves are substances, legal and approved for use in dentistry. Most patients describe the effects as if you are in a trance-like state of relaxation. During this time, you will probably feel at complete ease, allowing our dentists to perform one or more treatments that might otherwise make some patients feel uncomfortable.
Our practice offers a number of different sedation options. IV sedation involves an injection directly into the arm, which is a fast and effective method of application. Oral and inhalation-based sedation are also available for patients who are not comfortable with needles.
You may be required to have someone accompany you after sedation.
Although we pride ourselves on having a modern, comfortable, family-friendly dentist with a welcoming environment, some patients experience anxiety.
Modern dentistry has made great strides in making patients feel comfortable. Despite this, certain dental treatments may require long periods in the dental chair, and if you have a predisposition to dental treatment anxiety, you may find sedation to be the solution.
Sedation allows for total relaxation, offering you comfort when undergoing multiple or lengthy procedures in a single session.
