Dental Sedation Options

Read Transcript

Sedation dentistry is something that 15 years ago really wasn't available very much. I had been practicing, at that point, for about 15 years. I had always gone through the avenues of 'I'm going to educate you', calm them down, and do as much as I can, and not enforce myself on people and different things like that. I just found that there were still a large segment of the population that they weren't having it. They needed more help, so that's when I realized that I want that apart of my practice because, like I was saying earlier, that's 50% of the people out there. I mean there're good people, but they just have a fear and so sedation's been incredibly beneficial for me there in terms of being able to give them just that extra tool that they need to get it taken care of.

Our office offers three different types of sedation dentistry: nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and IV sedation. Each type can be used to ease fear or anxiety in a variety of circumstances. Talk to our team to learn more about these options and which might be best for your specific situation.
