The professionals at Southern Charm Dental understand that dental visits are a stressful experience for a lot of folks. The idea of getting dental work done is a scary thing for many. As much as we pride ourselves on delivering dental services with minimal discomfort, we do recognize that some patients would prefer not to be awake until it’s over.
IV sedation offers an opportunity for patients to get their dental treatment done with no sense of discomfort or duress. You will be administered an intravenous sedative that will last through your session, so it is advised that you arrange for transportation from the office after your appointment.
Oral conscious sedation is similar to IV sedation with the exception that the sedative is administered in pill form rather than intravenously. You will be awake during the treatment, but relaxed and not aware of any discomfort throughout the session. You will be given a sedative to take the night before as well the morning of, so, again, be sure to arrange for transportation to and from your appointment.
Sometimes referred to as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide serves to soothe the nerves of the patient and alleviate any sense of discomfort during your session. We make every effort to ensure that each patient is given caring, sensitive and comfortable treatment on every visit. Whether you opt for sedation dentistry, local anesthesia or nitrous oxide, you can be assured of quality care with minimal discomfort.
If you have anxiety or a fear of the dentist, schedule an appointment online today for sedation dentistry that can help you relax while receiving the care you need.
