North Palm Beach Sedation Dentistry
Sedation Dentistry In North Palm Beach
We know that dental appointments may not be your idea of a good time, and we understand that many patients suffer from dental anxiety. We offer sedation dentistry to help keep you comfortable, whether you are fearful, find it difficult to sit still, or need help getting through an extensive dental treatment.
The Benefits of Sedation Dentistry
We offer both laughing gas and oral conscious sedation to meet the needs of every patient.
Sedation dentistry can help address dental anxiety, a strong gag reflex, as well as pain.
We can provide you with sedation during any dental procedure to keep you calm and comfortable.
Dr. Schmitt is an experienced sedation dentist in North Palm Beach.
Why Choose Laughing Gas?
One of the biggest benefits of sedation with laughing gas is that it wears off quickly. You can drive yourself home after your appointment and get back to your regular routine immediately after treatment.
Why Choose Oral Conscious Sedation?
The sedative will make you feel relaxed and sleepy, and many patients forget what happens during their dental appointment. The effects of oral sedation can last up to 4-6 hours, so this means that you won’t be able to drive yourself home after treatment or easily get back to your day-to-day routine, so it’s important to take this into account when scheduling your appointment.
How Can I Deal With Dental Anxiety?
How Does Sedation Dentistry Work?
Oral conscious sedation is a bit different. You will need to take your sedation pills an hour or two before your appointment, in most cases. This form of sedation is much deeper compared to laughing gas. You may forget most of what happens during your appointment, and feel very groggy or “out of it.” Some patients even fall asleep during their procedure.
Is Sedation Dentistry Safe?
However, we will need to discuss your overall health, medical history, any medications you are taking, and any potential allergies you may have before you can be sedated. This is done to ensure that we provide you with the right treatment for your needs. Your safety is paramount at Seaglass Dental Care.
Which Procedures Is Sedation Used For In Dentistry?
We also provide sedation for other treatments such as dental implants, crown preparation, cosmetic dentistry (such as veneers) and root canal therapy. Often, oral sedation is recommended for these treatments. This type of sedation is a better option for more lengthy operations. Since it offers a deeper level of sedation, you will feel more comfortable during these more invasive surgical procedures.
No matter what treatment you’re getting at Seaglass Dental Care, we can provide you with expert care, and choose the method of sedation that’s right for you. To learn more and get started, just contact us for a consultation with Dr. Jared Schmitt.
