Sedation Dentistry: Your Key To Comfort

  • August 27, 2016

Welcome back to ongoing blog of the LANAP and Implant Center. Here in Collegeville and Williamsport, PA, we are dedicated to helping dental patients get the care they need despite any fears or anxiety they may have. We understand how stressful dental anxiety or fear can be and we work hard to help each patient who visits our office feel relaxed and safe. If you are someone who is suffering, please give us a call. We can help you maintain a beautiful, healthy smile regardless of your dental phobia.

Don’t Let Dental Fear Or Anxiety Ruin Your Oral Health

If you are letting fear or anxiety associated with a trip to the dentist’s office keep you from getting the quality care you need, you are not alone. We regularly meet patients who have avoided dental care for years and now need extensive tooth replacement. But that is okay! Even if you are at that point, it is not too late. Our team can help you get the care you need.

By offering dental sedation, the team at the LANAP and Implant Center can help you feel comfortable and relaxed throughout your visit to our office. We can even perform long or complicated procedures and keep you completely comfortable at the same time. No matter what state your mouth is in at this current moment, we can help you get the care you need. Don’t let your dental fear or anxiety control your decisions any longer — now is the time to finally give your smile the attention it needs.

How Sedation Dentistry Can Help

With sedation dentistry, you can stay completely comfortable during your appointment. If you need a long or complicated procedure (such as dental implant placement) or are simply wanting to tackle your dental anxiety, our dental sedation options can help. And they are perfectly safe to use! Our team is specially trained to administer dental sedation and monitor you throughout the process to make sure everything goes as planned. With dental sedation, our team can help you achieve a beautiful, healthy, functional smile by finally allowing you to feel confident and comfortable throughout treatment.

Types Of Dental Sedation

At the LANAP and Implant Center, we offer two different types of dental sedation: oral conscious and IV. Each of these options can be used in a variety of situations to help you get the dental care you need. Let’s talk more specifically about these options and how they can help you feel comfortable and confident.

Oral Conscious Sedation — This type of sedation is our lower level of sedation, but it can still make a major impact on your comfort. If you are nervous and are not having a very complicated procedure performed, oral conscious sedation might be a great option for you. This type of sedation is administered via a pill or tablet consumed before your procedure. It will create a sense of grogginess and relaxation, but you will still be conscious enough to answer our questions and otherwise respond to us during treatment.

IV Sedation — This type of sedation is our higher level of sedation and is typically used for patients who are very fearful or who are undergoing a long or complicated dental procedure. It is administered via an intravenous line and creates a sleep-like state. With IV sedation, you will wake up from your procedure without memory of it. You won’t the remember sights, smells, sounds, or sensation from the appointment.
