Why Should I Choose Sedation Dentistry?

Fear of the dentist can stem from childhood traumatic experiences, fear of needles, generalized anxiety, or painful experiences in the past. No matter the source of your fear of anxiety, sedation can be a great solution. It can help make the dental experience less traumatic and more comfortable and relaxing. Sedation dentistry can also work well for lengthy, complex dental procedures like dental implants, so you remain comfortable throughout the treatment.

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

Reduced anxiety

Sedation is beneficial because it helps reduce the fear associated with dental procedures. With our professional sedation treatment, you can expect to get the dental care you need in the most comfortable and calmest way possible.

Efficient treatments

Sedation can help speed up dental procedures by allowing our dentists to complete multiple treatments in one appointment.

Reduced discomfort

Another essential benefit of sedation is that it reduces the discomfort associated with dental treatments. It can also minimize the need for pain medication.

The Sedation Dentistry Process

First, you’ll need to schedule a consultation with Dr. Stevens to discuss your medical history and sedation needs. The dentist will also discuss with you the sedation option that’s right for you.

Once you agree on the best sedation option, your dentist will give you instructions on how to prepare for the procedure. Usually, this includes recommendations to eat a light meal the night before, avoid alcohol prior to the procedure, and avoid certain foods and beverages. During treatment, your dentist will monitor you closely and continuously adjust the amount of medication administered.

After Treatment

After treatment, you will be monitored for some time to ensure the medication has fully worn off. When you’re ready to go, you’ll be given instructions on how to care for your mouth in the next few days until you completely heal.
