We all love to walk out of the dentist’s office with fresh-feeling teeth and an improved state of oral health, but for some people, the idea of actually going to the dentist can make them downright fearful. Yet, not only the timid elects sedation dentistry. Some patients have to undergo multiple cosmetic procedures, but do not have the time to revisit Dr. Sands’ office. In these situations, sedation dentistry can help comfort a patient’s experience, and help make the most of their time spent with us.
We want you to feel at ease under the care of Dr. Sands. There are various types of anesthetic options, which are dependent on your procedure and preference. Typically, a patient can choose from oral sedation (the “pill”), nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”), and IV sedation. This service is known to help ease stress and anxiety from a patient’s experience with dental cosmetic procedures.
