If you feel anxious or stressed about a certain procedure or appointment, you’re not alone. Many patients experience dental anxiety, and can sometimes let this anxiety keep them from getting the treatment they need. Dr. McDermott and his team want every patient to feel at home here in our office. We will do everything in our power to make you as comfortable as possible during your visit. At Redhill Dental Clinic, we are proud to offer sedation dentistry options to all of our patients before any procedure.
What is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry refers to an optional treatment that patients can have administered before any procedure. A sedation dentistry treatment will put you in a relaxed state throughout your entire procedure and make your dental appointment even easier and more stress-free. Patients who choose sedation dentistry are awake enough to answer questions, but experience reduced sensitivity and feel completely at ease. At our practice, we offer oral conscious sedation treatment options.
Oral conscious sedation is a type of sedation dentistry that utilizes an easy-to-swallow pill or tablet. When you choose oral conscious sedation, your dentist will give you a pill to take about thirty minutes prior to visiting our office. Once the effects of the sedation have settled, your dentist will begin your procedure. Patients who choose oral conscious sedation will be awake enough to answer questions, but will need to arrange for a ride to and from the dentist office.
If you have any questions about sedation dentistry, you can call us at our office. We would be happy to answer any questions or to arrange a consultation with your dentist. To schedule an appointment, call us at our office today.
