We are compassionate with our dentally challenged patients and those who are anxious just sitting in a dental chair. We are pleased to be able to help these patients with conscious sedation dentistry that will allow them to be comfortable and relaxed for their dental care.
By simply taking one pill about an hour prior to your appointment, you will begin to relax and feel calm. As you sit in the dental chair, your relaxation progresses to a deeper level. You are not completely unconscious, just unaware of the procedure taking place. You can still answer questions that the doctor may ask. All vital signs are monitored throughout your treatment, and after your work is completed, someone drives you back home. In about an hour, you are completely alert again.
Some patients have an even greater fear of becoming unconscious. It is important to know you are not completely out as for surgery. You are just unaware of the work being performed. Conscious sedation provides a happy medium of feeling calm while still being in control.
This also works well for those who have difficulty becoming numb with regular anesthesia. And for those who don't have the time to return for multiple visits to complete all the necessary dental work, this allows them to have all their treatments in one visit.
We also offer the use of nitrous oxide (laughing gas) for those who just need lighter sedation. (Coming Soon!)
Call our office at (252) 764-2784 to determine how sedation dentistry can make your dental visit comfortable and relaxed.
