What is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry is often referred to as “twilight” sedation. It is a moderate form of sedation that allows patients to remain in a very relaxed state throughout their procedure. It involves the steady use of sedative drugs throughout your treatment that are carefully monitored by one of our dentists. At any point during your procedure, the level of sedation can be adjusted and the effects reversed.
This deeper form of sedation is excellent for patients who suffer from severe dental anxiety or for those that need a more invasive or lengthier dental procedure. The effects of sedation dentistry wear off quickly and most patients do not even remember the details of their actual procedure. It is recommended that you have someone accompany you to your appointment so that they can drive you home.
At Pleasant Plains Dental, we understand that patients have different levels of fear and anxiety when it comes to the dentist. Whether you have had a traumatic experience as a child or feel uneasy about a more extensive dental treatment, you can trust that we have ways to help you relax. Your dental care should be painless and rewarding at all times. If you feel that sedation dentistry would benefit you or help you take advantage of the dental treatments your smile needs, please don’t hesitate to contact Pleasant Plains Dental today to schedule an appointment.
