<b>What is Sedation Dentistry?</b>
Sedation is essential for people who need to feel more comfortable coming in for treatment. Unfortunately, it can be a major problem to have dental work done if you are scared to come into the office. This is why we here at the Boutqiue for Cosmetic Dentistry will offer many different types of sedation. You can find an option that works best for you before having any type of treatment done.
<b>Why would Sedation Dentistry be needed?</b>
The reason many of our patients request sedation is because they’re simply nervous about having dental treatment done. You might suffer panic attacks and continually put off treatment. It is important that you come in to discuss sedative options to see if it’s right for you. Sedation is very safe and can be helpful for individuals who are trying to improve their overall dental experience.
<b>Who is a candidate for Sedation Dentistry?</b>
The best candidate for sedation is someone who is healthy enough to undergo it in our office. Dr. Azy will go over all health information before recommending any type of sedative for you to choose. The next step is for you to choose the sedative that you’d like at your next appointment. You can request sedation at virtually any time when coming in for treatment.
<b>What happens during the Sedation process?</b>
Sedation starts with a consultation and exam. From there, it is up to you to decide which one is right for you. Laughing gas, or nitrous oxide, is one of our most popular choices. You may even look into oral sedation and IV sedatives to help relax you enough to have treatment done. After undergoing any type of sedative, you will need to have a relative or friend bring you back home so that you do not have to drive alone. It is unsafe for you to operate a vehicle after you’ve had some type of sedative administered.
If you think you’d benefit from sedation, call us today and we’ll be happy to get you in for a convenient appointment.
