Nervous about seeing the dentist? If you suffer from dental anxiety, sedation dentistry could be the answer you’ve been looking for.
Sedation dentistry, also known as “sleep dentistry,” can help you sleep through your appointment.
This treatment option can help:
- People with dental fears completely relax
- Turn multiple appointments into a single visit
- People who have difficulty getting numb
You simply take a little pill prior to treatment, helping you completely relax. Our team monitors your vital signs constantly and you are never left alone. You will be awake enough to respond to us and hear our corny jokes, but will essentially sleep through the entire appointment! Due to the wonderfully relaxing effects of the pill, you should have someone drive you to and from the appointment.
Sedation dentistry dramatically reduces the body’s natural tendency to tense muscles while stressed, helping you to feel relaxed and at ease. Dental anesthetics are more effective while the body is relaxed, practically eliminating any concerns about discomfort during treatment. Your post-operative discomfort can be treated with simple, over-the-counter medications such as Aleve or Tylenol.
