Is fear keeping you from the dentist? At Impressions Dentistry, we want your visit to be enjoyable and stress-free. That’s why we offer sedation dentistry as an option for our patients. No longer do you have to let dental fears keep your smile from the care that it needs. Whether you just need to schedule a dental check-up or are in need of treatment, sedation can be used to help you sit back and relax throughout your entire appointment. It will be over before you know it. We offer two types of sedation – oral sedation and nitrous oxide. Call today to schedule a free sedation consultation to find out which option is best for you. Start getting dental care without the stress.
Oral sedation is given through a pill prior to the start of your appointment. The sedation will keep you relaxed and at ease throughout the entire visit. Oral sedation will make you drowsy, so a driver will need to accompany you to your appointment. Oral sedation lasts for hours and is a good type of sedation to use through lengthy treatment.
Nitrous oxide sedation is administered through a face mask. The sedation begins taking effect within minutes and allows you to feel completely relaxed and comfortable. With nitrous oxide sedation, you will be able to respond to your dentist and follow instructions as needed. As soon as you remove the mask, the sedation will begin to wear away, allowing you to resume your normal daily activities.
Yes! Many patients have been able to finally take care of their smiles thanks to sedation dentistry. In addition, much treatment can be accomplished in one visit with the help of sedation.
A sedation consultation will help your dentist determine the best sedation to fit your needs depending on which type will work for your upcoming visits. Call today to schedule a free sedation consultation!
