If you often experience a deep anxiety when you are seated in the dental chair for your routine dental checkup, know that many people experience this struggle during their dental visits. We can provide different options for sedation dentistry to help you feel relaxed during different types of dental visits.
Sedation dentistry helps patients relax during treatment by using a sedative to reduce dental anxiety. The purpose of sedation dentistry is to deliver relaxation and tranquility while performing dental procedures. The use of a sedative can help a procedure feel as though it only lasted a few minutes. Whether you are nervous about a routine teeth cleaning or need to undergo an extensive procedure, Dr. Juan Echeverri can provide the following options to help you feel calm:
– Mild sedation: A light sedation may be beneficial for you because it helps to lower stress levels and leave you feeling relaxed without putting you to sleep.
– Moderate sedation: If you need to sit still for a while and keep your mouth open, as is often the case with procedures like wisdom tooth removal, a moderate sedation can put you in a light sleep so that you don’t experience any discomfort or even recall the whole of the procedure.
– Deep sedation: Procedures such as the removal of impacted wisdom teeth often call for deep sedation so that you can be unconscious during the procedure but still wake easily when it’s time to go home.
