Why Sedation Dentistry?

As many as 75% of US adults and children experience some degree of dental fear.
For some, it can be mild and for others, it can be a true phobia. When a true phobia, patients are so fearful of receiving dental treatment that they will avoid dental care at all costs.
The sedation technique can be used as an adjunct to care for everything from technique sensitive procedures, to simple cleaning.

Will I be asleep?

No. You will feel almost like you are napping and in a very restful state. After your treatment, you will be refreshed without memory of sights, sounds, and smells of the procedure.

What is sedation dentistry?

Sedation dentistry takes many forms and most people want to know more about the medications but there are things that we do differently for every patient and some require no medication at all.

I understand that there are different levels and choices for me.

Oh yes, many!

There are even more options available to you at CVD
For example, we provide Nitrous Oxide otherwise known as “laughing gas” at absolutely no charge for many patients.
Often, a combination of oral anxiety medications and nitrous oxide can offer a level of comfort desired.

Who can have sedation dentistry?

In addition to providing sedation for patients with anxiety about dental care, Sedation Dentistry may be right for you if you have experienced:

  • Fear and anxiety or a previous traumatic dental experience
  • Difficulty numbing
  • Gag reflex
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Complex dental problems
  • Those with busy schedules find sedation dentistry especially helpful, as we can often complete multiple treatments in a single visit.

How safe is sedation dentistry?

We know everything about our patients while they are sedated. We like to say that our sedation patients are our safest patients because of the monitoring that we are constantly measuring:

  • Oxygen levels and provide oxygen throughout the appointment.
  • Blood Pressure
  • Heart Rate
  • Carbon Dioxide
    EKG
