You can finally have your dentistry done in fewer visits. Sedation dentistry, also known as “sleep dentistry,” is a wonderful new aspect of modern dentistry, practiced by highly trained doctors who can help patients virtually sleep through their appointments. This treatment option can help those with dental fears, turn multiple appointments into a single visit and even help patients who have difficulty getting numb! It’s a wonderful option for so many patients – ask Dr. Silva about incorporating sedation dentistry into your next appointment!
How does it work?
Patients simply take a little pill before treatment, leaving them completely relaxed and extremely comfortable. Our team monitors your vital signs constantly and you are never left alone. You will still be awake enough to respond to the doctor, but will essentially sleep through the entire appointment! Due to the wonderfully relaxing effects of the pill, you should have someone drive you to and from the appointment.
Will I feel anything?
Sedation dentistry dramatically reduces the body’s natural tendency to tense muscles while stressed, helping you to feel relaxed and at ease. Dental anesthetics are more effective while the body is relaxed, practically eliminating any concerns about discomfort during treatment. Your post operative discomfort can be treated with simple over the counter medications such as Aleve® or Tylenol®.
Who can benefit from sedation dentistry?
All sorts of patients can benefit! Do you…
