Imagine going to the dentist with fears or anxiety about your upcoming procedure. You’re scared, frightened, and are even considering skipping the appointment altogether. Having fears of the dentist is completely normal, and there are ways to make your upcoming procedure more enjoyable and relaxing.
Parkcrest Dental Group is pleased to offer patients the option of feeling comfortable and safe with sedation dentistry. When patients undergo sedation dentistry, they will have no memories of the treatment or discomfort they were expecting to feel, while still receiving high-quality treatment.
Sedation dentistry is a form of dentistry performed while a patient is under the influence of sedative drugs that make the patient fall asleep. This allows the dentist to provide the patient with a variety of dental treatments for patients who are uncomfortable with lengthy procedures or just have a fear of the dentist.
Patients who have undergone a treatment using sedation methods will agree that it is a relaxing and stress-free way to experience the dentist.
There is certainly nothing to fear or be nervous about when it comes to sedation dentistry practices. Parkcrest Dental is licensed by the Missouri Dental Board, making us qualified and prepared to handle any sedation techniques or needs you may require.
Sedation is closely regulated by law, and there are three sedative options that your dentist can offer you for your treatment, which are mild sedation, moderate sedation, and general anesthesia.
Sedation dentistry can make a patient’s time at the dentist more relaxing and enjoyable. If you’re interested, or think you’d be an exceptional candidate, download our sedation dentistry guide today. Patients will learn more about the ins and outs of the procedure and how the sedation treatment will be administered.
