An Estimated 93 Million Americans Experience Dental Anxiety. Are You One of Them?
Dental fear and anxiety prevent many patients from getting the care they need to achieve a healthy smile. With sedation dentistry, you can experience pleasant dental visits, free from factors holding you back. Dr. Lauren Anderson and our team provide a safe, relaxed, and modern environment allowing you to feel comfortable receiving the treatment you need. Regardless the cause of your anxiety, you can experience positive dental visits with our gentle approach and relaxing sedation dentistry services.
Change Your Dental Experiences, Change Your Life
Sedation dentistry not only increases your comfort during periodontal and implant procedures but it also improves your relationship with dental care. With sedation dentistry, you can enjoy benefits like:
- Calm, stress-free visits
- Comfortable procedures
- Minimal-to-no memory of your treatment
- Overcome dental fear and anxiety
- More efficient care
- Multiple procedures in one appointment
Calm Your Fears with Our Sedation Dentistry Options
Dr. Anderson wants you and your family to receive the periodontal and implant care you need, without the worry. She earned her certification to safely administer both oral sedation and IV conscious sedation dentistry services.
With this method of sedation dentistry, a prescription sedative pill is taken one hour before your scheduled appointment in our office. Oral sedation induces a calm and relaxed feeling, leaving you free from worry about the treatment provided. Because the effects of oral sedation do linger for several hours, a companion driver is required to bring you to and from your visit.
IV Conscious Sedation
Compared to oral sedation, intravenous sedation dentistry produces a deeper state of relaxation, whereby medications are given to reduce anxiety and promote a sleep state. The IV sedation dentistry medications used with this method have amnesiac effects, however you remain conscious and able to respond to our instructions. As with oral sedation, a driver is required when receiving IV sedation dentistry. For both sedation techniques no solid or liquid food or drinks may be consumed for 6 hours prior to your appointment. Your safety is our priority.
