Dental anxiety affects about 36% of the population, and another 12% experience severe fear when it comes to dental appointments. If that’s you, the good news is we can make your visit a whole lot more relaxing with safe IV and oral sedation.
As your Lewiston dentist, we’ll help you overcome your fears. Here’s how both IV and oral sedation work to make your appointment easy:
IV SedationThe anesthesia used is dependent on the patient the procedures we are going to be doing. When it comes to undergoing complex procedures, IV sedation and general anesthesia are a great combination. You will be in a conscious “sleeping” state, which means you can respond to our instructions but will have no recollection of the treatment experience. The effects wear off quickly after treatment, and you will feel like yourself in no time.
Oral Sedation With oral sedation, you consume a pill one hour before your procedure to reduce anxiety. This is perfect for people with mild to moderate anxiety. Although you are fully awake during your procedure, there’s a good chance you won’t remember any of it. This is very common. It takes many hours for the effects of oral sedation to dissipate, so you’ll need someone to drive you home.
With these options and our expert team, we’ll help you overcome dental anxiety once and for all. Give us a call today so we can give you the care you want and need.
