Many patients are nervous about dental appointments and put off treatment for years.
Procrastination can be the worst thing for your gums and teeth.
Various sedation dentistry and relaxation techniques can put the most phobic patient at rest.
Through conscious sedation for a dental procedure, an apprehensive patient can be treated in a relaxed way, allowing their oral health care to be completed. Conscious sedation also allows a lower stress level to be achieved for the medically compromised patient.
We offer three different types of sedation dentistry to get rid of the stress of your dental appointment.
This is an excellent option for an extremely apprehensive patient who wants to be completely asleep for any dental procedure or a patient undergoing a lengthy surgical procedure, such as multiple implant surgery.
The use of oral medication (Halcion) allows the patient to experience an anxiety free appointment and is mostly used for shorter procedures such as single implant placement or even dental hygiene appointments
Patients may also know this as “laughing gas”.
This is a significant help for relieving mild anxiety and it helps eliminate the gag reflex.
Along with Dr. Vella, you can choose the sedation dentistry method best for you based on several variables that will be discussed at your appointment.
