Is dental anxiety preventing you from going to the dentist? Well, you are among millions of Americans who have dental phobia. Fortunately, advancements in dental technology and techniques, sedation dentistry may be the solution. In Sedation Dentistry, dentists administer medicine to relax the patient during dental procedures. Sedation also enables our dentists to complete the treatment in fewer dental visits.
We offer various sedation options depending on the dental procedure or patient. Our dentists may use any of the following types of sedation.
- Inhaled-oral sedation
- Moderate intravenous (IV) sedation
- Deep sedation
- General anesthesia
Sedation dentistry is helpful to all patients, including children, who fear dentists. Moreover, the treatment is faster. Our dentist will perform the procedure without causing you any discomfort once you are sedated. Furthermore, our dentist will administer local anesthesia to numb the area, especially if you are not under general anesthesia.
At Dana Dental, we recommend sedation methods to patients who experience dental phobia due to trauma from a previous visit to a dentist.
