IV Sedation...Best Option For An Anxiety Free Dental Visit
You will Experience the most pain-free Surgery of your life
Did you have a bad experience at the dentist as a child? Are you worried your procedure will hurt? You can overcome dental anxiety with sedation dentistry. At Alpine Dentistry, we offer a range of sedation options to suit patients of all ages and comfort levels.
We understand that receiving dental treatments can be stressful and nerve-wracking when you have had a negative experience at a past dental appointment. At Alpine Dentistry, your comfort is our top priority, and we strive to help each patient develop a positive relationship with getting treatment.
Dental technology has come a long way. We offer a wide range of sedation options that will suit you and your level of dental anxiety, including oral sedation, laughing gas, and IV sedation administration for routine appointments. The sedation procedures we offer include:
Light sedation allows the patient to be completely awake and aware during treatment. Laughing gas is a mild form of sedation breathed in through the nose with oxygen. This type of sedation is administered to you before your treatments and throughout. Patients that take advantage of this type of sedation will feel relaxed and comfortable while in the chair.
We use this type of sedation for patients with minor anxiety, and we can even administer it to children. Laughing gas won’t only allow you to feel more comfortable, but the treatments will go faster because of fewer pauses and breaks.
With laughing gas, you’ll breathe in the gas through a mask. Within minutes, you’ll feel more relaxed. You might even feel euphoric, but you’ll still be awake and able to communicate with your dentist.
For patients who need a little extra help relaxing, we can administer oral medication to give you additional sedation. To obtain the prescription, you must speak to one of our dentists. If you are qualified to receive medical sedation, you will administer the medication the night before your procedure.
On the day of your procedure, we will instruct you to take the pill a certain amount of time before. With oral sedation, you will be awake and will be able to drive home afterward. Patients choose oral sedation to feel a more profound relaxation than laughing gas can give them.
IV Sedation... The Perfect Solution For Dental Anxiety
Intravenous (IV) sedation is an excellent choice for surgical procedures. Not only will your visit be pain-free, but you’ll sleep through your appointment!
Why IV Sedation Is Best For Anxiety Free Dental Visits?
IV Sedation: Procedures Done in the Blink of an Eye
Dental procedures like dental implants and wisdom teeth removal can seem scary. With IV sedation, you won’t remember the procedure at all. Before your treatment begins, we’ll administer the sedative intravenously through your arm. The effects are immediate, and you will “sleep” through the remainder of the surgery.
When you wake up, it will seem as if we did the whole procedure in the blink of an eye. We can even perform multiple operations while you’re sedated.
You’re in good hands at Alpine dentistry. Let us help you put your fear of the dentist in the past. If you are looking for any other details regarding the sedation options we provide, please give our office a call.
