Dream Through Your Dental Visit

If dental visits sound like a nightmare, then it’s time to ask your dentist how you can peacefully dream right through your next appointment. Sleep and sedation dentistry allows patients of all different backgrounds to enjoy a better experience when it comes to dental care.

Sedation dentistry is an option for just about every dental patient – from child to adult. Electing to access sedation during your dental visit can help you relax throughout the entire appointment and have all of your care needs addressed at one time. These appointments are perfect for people who require more extensive treatment, have longer procedures to complete, or simply want to tune out everything when it comes to having dental work done.

While there are different levels of sedation available, most patients report feeling as if they were taking a light nap or dreaming throughout their entire visit. Since the medications used are also amnesiacs, patients almost always forget everything about the entire appointment! From IV Sedation to nitrous oxide, there are a variety of options available. Discuss your concerns with your dentist and find out what types they offer to help you get through your care comfortably.

It’s important to have someone with you when you come for your appointment, as some medications take a few hours to wear off after your dental visit. Your dentist will follow up with you as well as provide written home care instructions so that you won’t have to worry about whether or not you forgot something. If you’ve been nervous about going back to the dentist, or just want to experience the most relaxed environment possible, then it’s time to ask your dentist about sedation dentistry today.
