If you suffer from dental anxiety or fear, we are able to provide you with sedation dentistry to help you feel more relaxed while undergoing treatment. Sedation dental care is also a great option for patients who are time-poor and require multiple dental treatments within the one appointment.
Why do people have sedation dentistry?
There are many reasons for performing dental treatment under IV sedation and why it may be the option for your dental care.
Fear of the dentist is one of the most common fears in today’s society. If you suffer from dental anxiety, then we are completely trained and prepared to cater to your personal needs.
In some cases sedation dentistry provides the perfect option to make sure your mouth is looked after without you having to worry about dealing with your fears.
Complex dental treatment
Treatment that requires extensive work may be difficult to fit into your schedule under a normal appointment plan. Sedation dentistry allows us to perform large treatment plans in a much shorter duration, getting you up and smiling much faster!
Wisdom teeth extraction
Impacted wisdom teeth can require surgery in order to remove them safely. Depending on your situation, or your preference sedation dentistry may be the option to have your wisdom teeth extracted as pleasantly as possible.
Kids dental treatment
In some cases where children need extensive treatment it’s the most viable option to perform the dental work under IV sedation in the dental chair. It’s important that children start off with positive experiences at the dentist and this is a valuable option for making sure your child doesn’t develop dental anxiety!
- IV Sedation – intravenous sedation is also known as ‘sleep dentistry’ and involves being put into a deep state of relaxation. Despite the name, IV sedation does not involve actual sleep and you remain ‘awake’ during the procedure, however the level of relaxation produces a feeling of not being bothered by your surroundings. People will often not remember their experience under IV sedation and can be a great option for a broad range of dental treatment.
