What Is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry makes hours seem like minutes. Light Touch Dental Laser and Implant Center knows the dentist's office can feel like a scary place to some. That's why our sedation dentistry provides an amnesic effect. You will undergo treatment, but the sedation will keep you from feeling, smelling, or hearing what goes on during your appointment.
Sedation dentistry can leave you feeling a little drowsy. We recommend someone you love drives you to and from your appointment. That way, you can sit back and enjoy how quick recovery feels. The sedation will make it seem as if a lot can be accomplished in a short amount of time. Generally, patients feel fantastic the day after!
With Sedation Dentistry, you can regain your health and have the fabulous smile you've always wanted. You don't have to be afraid of the dentist anymore.
Whether you have a broken tooth, yellow teeth, missing teeth, or pain points, our sedation dentistry can help you sit back and relax.
Light Touch Dental Laser and Implant Center works to maximize your insurance benefits and make convenient financial agreements that feel as comfortable as sedation dentistry.
How Does Sedation Dentistry Work?
Scheduling a dentist's appointment is a daunting task for an anxious person, but the hard part is over when you schedule.
We'll gather information about your health and discuss your goals. Once we're on the same page, we'll take some x-rays of your mouth. Each visit is judgment free!
We'll figure out which oral sedation is best for you. Light Touch Dental Laser and Implant Center offers nitrous oxide (laughing gas), oral conscious sedation, and I.V. sedation.
Bring someone with you. Sedation dentistry can make you feel a little tired, and you'll relax easier knowing someone can safely drive you to and from your appointment.
As soon as your appointment ends, we'll work with you and your companion to send you on your way. They will drive you home and allow you to rest until you're recovered.
Many patients recover from sedation dentistry by the following day. They rarely report discomfort or residual side effects.
Who Benefits From Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry is a feasible option for many people. All can benefit from it, yet Light Touch Dental Laser and Implant Center notices it's popular among a few crowds. These include the elderly, the disabled, and the fearful.
Age makes oral healthcare more critical than ever. Whether we're treating periodontal diseases or tooth loss, providing veneers, or anything else, we need to provide quality care. Elderly patients can sometimes require advanced treatments for the best oral health. Advanced dental care might cause one to skip the dentist due to anxiety. Concerns are often linked to embarrassment as well as fear.
The sedation dentistry we provide at Light Touch Dental Laser and Implant Center helps the elderly stay calm as they undergo essential dental care. We want our patients to love their smiles at any age.
The disabled might also feel some adverse feelings toward the dentist's office. Regardless of their disability, they need a dentist who can provide the necessary accommodations. Light Touch Dental Laser and Implant Center uses sedation dentistry to ensure the experience is as smooth as possible for all patients.
The sedation methods we provide give everyone the incredible gift of a beautiful smile. Disabled patients can enjoy visiting our office without having to worry.
Dental phobia is not a made-up term; it's a real, overwhelming reality for thousands of patients. It's why we provide our most fearful patients with sedation therapy, which keeps nervous folks from hearing drills and needles. That way, they can relax and no longer have to experience extreme anxiety at the thought of going to the dentist.
If you believe you have dental phobia, it can improve when you visit Light Touch Dental Laser and Implant Center. We will make sure your appointment feels as low stress as possible.
