For many people, going to the dentist can be a nerve-wracking experience. If you require a procedure, your anxiety can spike even more. Luckily, there is a solution with sedation dentistry.
At Lake Hill Dental Care, we offer several sedation options for our patients to help them relax during their procedure, increase comfort and control the gag reflex. Below are a few important notes if you are considering sedation dentistry for yourself or a family member.
Speak to Your Physician First
Should you suffer from high blood pressure, heart disease or diabetes, it is important to check with your physician before having us perform sedation dentistry. In most cases, you will be able to have us perform this, however, your health is our number one priority and we want to ensure there will be no harmful effects to you.
Typical Sedation Techniques
Depending on what you are comfortable with, we offer several of the more popular sedation dentistry techniques. For more details on our sedation options, we ask that you give us a call or see us for a free sedation consultation.
What You Should Expect
Many of our patients have little-to-no memory of the treatment and can have most, if not all, of their treatment completed in one visit. Please note that not all sedation methods will take full effect immediately and may need to be adjusted throughout the procedure. It should also be noted that you may or may not be able to drive yourself home based on the sedation technique that is used, so be sure to plan accordingly.
