RELAX. AND LET US DO THE WORK WHILE YOU SLEEP.
Don’t let fear and anxiety keep you from seeing a dentist.
Sedation dentistry allows us to perform dental procedures while you sleep. It can make a 5 hour visit seem like 5 minutes! All it takes is a small pill. Best of all, you won’t even remember your visit. Sedation dentistry is perfectly safe, can help you relax and reduce any anxiety you may feel about going to the dentist. It’s a great way to get your dental work done, even if you’re very fearful of going to the dentist.
What is Sedation Dentistry?
Let Us Help You Relax and Reduce Anxiety
If you are putting off having dental work performed because you fear the pain or discomfort involved, sedation dentistry might be the right choice for you. Sedation dentistry (also referred to as sleep dentistry) uses medication to help patients relax during dental procedures.
Types of Sedation Used in Dentistry
Integrative Dental Solutions offers both oral sedation and general anesthesia.
- Oral Sedation. In this type of sedation dentistry, you take a pill which will make you drowsy and possibly groggy enough to fall asleep during your dental procedure. Depending on the dose, oral sedation usually offers a lighter form of sedation – it will help you relax and reduce anxiety and may allow you to fall asleep. However, you can be awoken very easily with a gentle shake.
- General Anesthesia. General anesthesia will render you unconscious during the procedure and you cannot easily be awoken until the effects of the anesthesia wear off or are reversed with medication. Integrative Dental Solutions offers general anesthesia services with Dr. James Crawford, Board Certified Dentist Anesthesiologist.
