About Sedation Dentistry
What is Oral Sedation?
Oral sedation begins with a small pill, which you will take at a predetermined time before your appointment. This pill will help you enter a deep, relaxing state of peace that we’ll closely monitor at all times during the procedure to ensure your safety and comfort. While you’ll be able to respond to any simple commands by Dr. Hanschu, most patients typically do not remember much about their appointment once the effects wear off. A friend or family member needs to drive you both to and from your appointment.
What are the benefits of Sedation Dentistry?
Being sedated while you have dental work completed brings with it many benefits. Your anxiety will be relieved, you will be less aware of the procedure being carried out and your fear will be a thing of the past.
Who should consider Sedation Dentistry?
If the thought of dental treatment fills you with dread, then sedation dentistry is well worth considering. Whether you have a phobia or something less, by allowing your dentist to sedate you, dental treatment can be carried out quickly and efficiently. Talk to your dentist about sedation dentistry if you have problems with any of the following:
✓ A fear of dentists
✓ Low pain threshold
✓ Very sensitive teeth
✓ A gag reflex that causes problems during treatment
✓ Need to have a vast amount of work carried out
