Does going to the dentist make you nervous, anxious, or even scared? Would you rather not have to experience that? There are only two ways that will happen, unfortunately. You can either not go to the dentist, which is not much of an option, or you can get sedation. Your Slidell dentist wants to offer you a way to comfortable sit in the dentist chair.
Slidell Dentist Offering Sedation Options
Exceptional Dental in Slidell offers sedation to patients because we know how difficult it can be to go to the dentist if you feel nervous, anxious or upset at the idea of sitting in the dentist chair. This does not have to be a terrible experience for you. Exceptional Dental wants our customers to be as comfortable as possible for the duration of their visit.
What Is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry exists to help you to relax during your dental visit. Patients can be sedated in order to help them to avoid the negative feelings they experience. This can be used on just about any patient, excepting those for whom it would cause health issues. This is a process we go through consistently, asking questions regarding patient health and providing information along the way of how sedation dentistry works at our office.
Different Kinds of Sedation Dentistry
We offer two different kinds of sedation dentistry. Both oral sedation and intravenous conscious sedation. We’ll break down the differences and what is appealing about both.
Oral sedation dentistry is made possible by a small pill that the patient ingests. This is the most common method of sedation dentistry all around the world and this is because is created a more comfortable experience. Many patients don’t even remember their visit.
Intravenous conscious sedation, or IV sedation dentistry, is when a drug is administered directly into te blood system during a dental treatment. This is done through an IV port. Through IV sedation we can more precisely adjust the level of sedation as it is needed by that specific patient. This IV sedation is professionally administered and monitored by a physician anesthesiologist or certified nurse assistant.
