Our Sedation Dentistry Option
Easing Tension & Pain at Our Monett Dentist Office
Our practice at All Smiles Dental Care offers sedation for patients with special needs or dental anxiety. Sedation dentistry is not for everyone. In fact, many of our patients with some dental anxiety find they don’t need sedation in our office. These patients often tell us that our caring, gentle approach provides them with a relaxing, pleasant experience even without sedation.
WHAT IS ORAL SEDATION?
Patients who are apprehensive about receiving dental treatment often avoid going to the dentist. Ultimately, this avoidance can lead to advanced disease and the need for expensive treatments that could have been avoided. Oral sedation provides a safe, effective way to alleviate dental anxiety and provide patients with the treatment they need.
Oral sedation is an excellent method of treatment if you have any of the following concerns:
- Dental anxiety
- Very sensitive teeth
- Difficulty getting numb
- Extensive dental needs
- Discomfort with needles and shots
Oral sedation makes use of a prescription medication that induces a drowsy, relaxed feeling. This is an oral medication and no intravenous needles are used. Due to the relaxing effects of the medication, patients must have a friend or family member bring them to the dental office and return them home. During oral sedation, the patient’s vital signs are monitored. Although patients are not completely unconscious, many patients sleep through their dental appointment and few patients have any memory of their treatment.
