Many people are afraid of going to the dentist and some even put off vital appointments because of it! Don’t worry though, you are in capable hands at Sweet Tooth Smiles. We offer sedation dentistry in Richmond TX, which may be recommended to help reduce anxiety and allow for longer procedures to be completed in one visit.
Sedation dentistry allows you to stay awake, while becoming deeply relaxed, during the procedure. This means, you will still be able to follow direction from the dentist, and it will put you at ease during the appointment. Depending on the length of some procedures, Dr. Khan may suggest the use of sedatives even if the patient is not uneasy. Another alternative is known as general anesthesia, which puts patients to sleep during dental procedures.
The sedatives have some similarities to general anesthesia:
- Longer procedures can be completed
- The patient has no memories of the procedure
Sedatives can be administered using a variety of methods:
- Nitrous oxide
- Oral medications
- Intravenous sedatives
Our two priorities during sedated procedures are your comfort and safety. Our team is fully trained and very experienced in monitoring patients and recognizing issues after administration of the medicine. If you have any questions about sedation dentistry in Richmond TX, give Sweet Tooth Smiles a call today at (346) 368-0100 to schedule your consultation.
