Does the thought of your next dental visit put a knot in the pit of your stomach? You are not alone. In fact, it’s estimated that over 30 million Americans avoid the dentist due to anxiety and fear.
Sedation dentistry is a service we provide that offers a simple and convenient way for patients with dental anxiety to get the care they deserve. With sedation dentistry, we can complete complex dental procedures in fewer visits while you relax.
What Should You Expect?
We believe everyone deserves to get dental care without feeling worried or stressed out. With oral sedation, we make your time with us as tranquil and worry-free as we can. Imagine taking a peaceful car ride with your loved one and arriving at our office feeling relaxed in a peaceful environment. We make the entire process easy.
Sedation Dentistry Process
About an hour prior to your visit, you will take an oral medication. A loved one will give you a ride to your appointment, and you will feel at ease even before you arrive at our office. We will closely monitor you the entire visit to ensure you feel completely relaxed during your time with us. Once your appointment is done, your loved when will take you home and the oral medication will wear off within a few hours.
Is Sedation Dentistry Safe?
Above all else, our mission is your safety and comfort. You deserve to feel relaxed and get the dental care that you need. While there are always risks with any procedure, sedation dentistry is very common and is considered extremely safe. Dr. Lopez will work with you to find out if you are a good candidate for sedation dentistry.
