Sedation Dentistry

Do you dread the thought of going to your dentist? If so, would you like to sleep through your next dental visit or feel more relaxed during the dental process? An anesthetic may be the solution for your worry or fear of dental procedures. Sedation dentistry can significantly help you overcome dental sessions by calming you down during dental work.

Brightest Smiles Dentist Finder offers sedation dentistry if the thought of going to our dental office gives you the chill. With sedation, you can either relax or sleep through the dental procedure. Our dentists administer a drug, either oral sedatives, nitrous oxide, or intravenous sedatives before the dental procedure to help you get through the treatment.

Sedation dentistry is for patients with various psychological challenges when it comes to dental procedures or even the thought of going to the dental office. Patients with phobia related to dental procedures, general anxiety disorder, a negative dental experience in the past, and other reasons should ask about sedation dentistry. Root canals and other intensive types of dental works may require the administration of drugs for patients with fear of dental procedures.

If you believe you’re a candidate for sedation, we can help you once you’ve submitted the required clearance from a licensed physician. The medical clearance is your pass if you want our dentist to administer sedative during the dental work. Our dental experts will take a look at your medical history and assess your physical condition before giving you the sedation. Once you’re qualified for sedation dentistry, we’ll give you an idea of what to expect before and during the dental procedure. Our goal is to make sure you’re comfortable and relaxed while you go through a positive dental experience.

At Brightest Smiles Dentist Finder, our dentists will advise you if sedation dentistry is for you. If you’re worried about your upcoming dental work, we can examine you and see if you need dental sedation. Also, we’ll ask if you’re afraid of needles, being confined in a chair, and other necessary information to help us find the best possible approach for you.
