What is Sedation Dentistry?
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.
Sedation Dentistry provides a safe, effective way to alleviate dental anxiety and provide patients with the treatment they need.
Port Washington Smiles is a Port Washington Sedation Dental office who's team is compassionate and cares about their patient's desires.
How Does Sedation Dentistry Work?
There are several different types of Sedation Dentistry; Dr. Leute utilizes one of the most common forms known as Oral Sedation Dentistry.
Oral Sedation Dentistry is now the most common technique used in the United States to quell patient fears. It makes use of a prescription medication that induces a drowsy, relaxed feeling. We administer this medication orally (no needles!). 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 Sedation Dentistry, patient's vital signs are monitored. We like our patients to know that often times, they have such a comfortable, relaxed experience that many of them remember very little of the visit. In reality, Oral Sedation Dentistry maintains a level of consciousness in the patient for safety and cooperation.
Advantages of Sedation Dentistry
Sedation Dentistry is an excellent method of treatment for patients who have any of the following concerns:
- · Dental Anxiety/Fear of going to the Dentist
- · Difficulty Getting Numb
- · Very Sensitive Teeth
- · Extensive Dental Needs
- · Discomfort with Needles and Shots
Alternatives to Sedation Dentistry
Sedation Dentistry is not for everyone. In fact, many of our patients with some dental anxiety decide not to use Sedation Dentistry. These patients often tell us that our caring, gentle approach provides them with a relaxing, pleasant experience even without Sedation. The choice is really yours.
