Do you suffer from dental anxiety? Have you been delaying or avoiding necessary dental appointments because you just don’t like visiting the dentist? Sedation dentistry is a great way to help Sugar Land, Houston, Richmond or Katy area patients relax enough to receive the dentistry they need for a healthy smile.
There are several different methods of sedation dentistry to help your dentist meet the needs of all Sugar Land, Houston, Richmond or Katy patients. Today we will discuss oral conscious sedation and IV sedation.
Oral conscious sedation is a great solution for mild anxiety. You’ll be prescribed a sedative that you’ll take prior to your appointment, leaving you awake, relaxed and comfortable during treatment. This method requires that a friend or family member drive you to or from your appointment.
If you’re having a complex procedure or oral surgery, IV sedation is the best solution. This method dispenses the sedative directly in your bloodstream through an IV, so your dentist can tailor the dosage to exactly meet your needs. You will be unconscious during the procedure, and your vital signs will be carefully monitored to ensure your health. Also, you’ll need a ride home from this treatment while the effects of the drugs wear off.
Sedation dentistry is a great way to deal with dental anxiety and comfortable undergo several or extensive dental procedures in one visit. Call your Sugar Land, Houston, Richmond or Katy area dentist to learn more about sedation dentistry or to schedule a consultation.
