Sedation Dentistry Phoenix

In addition, sedation dentistry is perfect for those who are immune to the numbing effects of typical freezing techniques or who have gag reflexes. If you suffer from any of these challenges, you’ll be glad to know that you are not alone.

The Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS) reports that an astounding number of people fear the dentist. The National Institute of Health found that half of all Americans avoid the dentist. Dental treatment that previously seemed impossible, or too overwhelming for many patients, becomes a possibility with sedation dentistry. Plus, if you are undergoing long procedures such as a smile makeover, or dental reconstruction, this is a great option for maintaining comfort.

Sedation in dentistry helps patients to become drowsy and in most cases, sleep right through their dental procedures. Approximately an hour before a procedure, patients taking an analgesic (pain killer) or sedative, this is administered as a pill. When the medication kicks in, you begin to feel extremely relaxed and drift into a sleep like state.

Although sedation dentistry is often called sleep dentistry, the term is misleading because oral sedation dentistry actually maintains a level of patient consciousness in order to maintain safety and cooperation.

After surgery, most patients have no memory of their cosmetic dental surgery or dental procedure when they become coherent. We require that those patients who opt for conscious sedation have someone drive them to and from their dental appointments since the sedatives typically take several hours to completely wear off.
