Overcome Fear and Dental Anxiety with the Soothing Effects of Sedation Dentistry
Dental Anxiety and Fear Are Common Reasons People Avoid Dental Care
An estimated 75 million Americans experience fear or anxiety when it comes to visiting the dentist. Factors like the need for extensive dental treatment, past traumatic experiences, and general dislike of the sounds, sights and smells of the dental office are common reasons people experience these emotions. Many even avoid getting the care they need for a healthier smile, simply because fear over treatment is holding them back. However, it is never good to delay or avoid receiving the dental care you need. Dr. Arta Farahmand wants to help you overcome any dental anxiety or fear you may have. She and our team offer soothing sedation dentistry services to ensure your visit is a comfortable, positive experience.
Get the Dental Care You Need With Effective Sedation Options
Sedation dentistry offers the opportunity for you to relax in the dental chair, and actually enjoy your dental visits. We offer different levels of sedation, and can recommend the service best suited for your needs and degree of dental anxiety.
Our sedation dentistry options include:
Prescription sedative pill taken one hour prior to your visit. With oral sedation, you remain calm, awake and alert throughout care, but often have little memory of the procedure.
IV Conscious Sedation
Sedative medication administered intravenously. With IV sedation, you are completely relaxed and able to respond to instructions, but have little-to-no memory of the procedure. Dr. Farahmand works with an anesthesiologist for IV sedation.
Administered to treatment areas for the purpose of numbing teeth, gums and bone. Local anesthetic is often combined with sedation dentistry services.
