Which types of patients would benefit from sedation dentistry?
- Posted on: Jun 15 2022
Patients like you who have dental anxiety may find that they don’t get the dental treatments they need because of the avoidance of our dental team. We understand that you may have had a past traumatic experience at the dentist, or you deal with conditions such as a strong gag reflex or PTSD that makes it difficult for you to have work done in the mouth. At our practice, Drs. Siegelman, Currier, and Gluckman work directly with patients to help ease their dental phobias and get them into the dental office for the work they truly need to ensure a healthy and beautiful smile for life.
What is sedation dentistry and what procedures is it used for?
Our team proudly uses sedation dentistry to help comfort you during your next appointment. Whether you are undergoing intensive work and will need to spend hours in the dental chair, or you just need a simple cleaning, we can integrate sedation to ensure you are at ease from start to finish. We want our patients to love their appointments so they keep coming back for the dental care they require over a lifetime.
What types of sedation are available at our practice?
We want you to feel relaxed and comfortable during your dental treatments, and offer several types of sedation to consider for your next appointment. Some of the options include:
- Nitrous oxide
- Oral conscious sedation
- IV sedation
During a consultation appointment with our dentists, you can discuss the level of anxiety you experience during your visit and find out which type of sedation is best for your needs. We find that patients with conditions such as needle phobia, PTSD, or strong gag reflexes may find relief with at least one or more of our sedation methods to ensure they have a great time with our team!
