Sedation Dentistry Farmington
Easing Dental Anxiety
Are you having concerns about your next dental procedure? Do dental visits give you anxiety in general? Well, sedation dentistry might be your best option in eliminating any concerns! No matter how gentle we promise to be, we still see patients who are terrified of any kind of dental work. Even a simple checkup can make people tremble with fear.
Oral hygiene and dental care are essential to your body’s health. We want to ensure that you get the treatment you need – without the anxiety, you would normally feel during a visit. Sleep sedation is a safe, comfortable way to have your teeth cared for. With sedation dentistry, as it’s commonly called, you won’t feel any pain or discomfort – in fact, you might not even remember the treatment you’ve received!
Our periodontist, Dr. El-Halaby, is licensed to administer IV sedation, a safe and effective option for our patients.
A patient favorite form of conscious sedation is IV sedation. This type of sleep sedation is not like general anesthesia, which is most often unnecessary for lesser dental procedures. With IV sedation, your heart rate and oxygen levels are carefully monitored throughout the entire procedure and the body's breathing is not affected. While most patients do not remember much, they are awake during the procedure and can respond to simple requests.
Dr. El-Halaby has underwent extensive training for IV sedation. Patients who suffer from severe dental anxiety typically chose this level of sedation and are thrilled with being able to receive their oral care without the discomfort.
Advantages of IV Sedation
Since Dr. El-Halaby is licensed to administer IV sedation, there is no referral needed if you would like to opt in for sedation during your dental procedure in our office.
