Why Choose Sedation Dentistry?
If you have ever experienced even minor dental anxiety, you may be aware that going to the dentist can be nerve-racking. Many patients, however, experience such extreme dental phobia, that they cannot bring themselves to visit the dentist, even for a routine cleaning. For others, a sensitive gag reflex or an inability to sit still presents different, but equally concerning, complications. This is where sedation dentistry comes into play. Sedation dentistry, like oral sedation, provides patients with the additional level of relaxation needed to undergo necessary treatments. Our West River team is trained to provide sedation dentistry to help our patients experience a virtually painless and highly comfortable experience.
Empowering Patients, Creating Positive Experiences
Patients at our office can enjoy the benefits of oral sedation, a sedation dentistry solution that is taken in pill form prior to the appointment. By the time you arrive for your treatment, you will be in a state of deep relaxation. Oral sedation is a pain-free, needle-free type of sedation dentistry that can create positive dental experiences and empower you to take charge of your oral health care in the future.
Sedation dentistry helps patients with:
• Mild to severe dental anxiety
• Sensitive gag reflex
• Highly sensitive teeth
• An inability to sit still
• A low pain tolerance
The Benefits of IV Conscious Sedation
We refer all patients requiring IV conscious sedation to our Wilmington location for treatment. This form of sedation dentistry helps patients feel as though they are “sleeping” through their appointments, with an unawareness of what is happening around them. Especially beneficial for patients with extreme phobias or those needing more extensive dental work, IV sedation can effectively be administered to provide custom levels of sedation for the most relaxing and calming experiences. Our team at our Wilmington location is certified in IV sedation, enabling you to receive the same quality care without being referred to different group of doctors.
