Have you been afraid to call a dentist, even though you know it’s time for a cleaning and /or you need dental care? Do you feel anxious or fearful about going into a dental office, and thus avoid it? Are you in pain now, but can’t bear the thought of receiving dental treatment? Do you wish that you could feel relaxed, safe, and comfortable every time you visit the dentist? Would you prefer to have complex dental treatment or surgery performed in just one, painless visit?
If so, you’ll be pleased to know that sedation dentistry is
the answer to your concerns.
Are there any precautions I need to take after being sedated?
Depending on the type of sedation you undergo, a licensed driver may need to drive you home from your dental appointment. If you undergo IV sedation, you may need to be supervised for several hours following the procedure.
