Oral Sedation Dentistry Services
Anxious patients don’t need to be concerned at Dr. Rosenfeld’s office. Dr. Rosenfeld offers different types of sedation dentistry. Oral sedation dentistry can calm and relax patients who normally suffer from extreme anxiety before a dental appointment.
Sedation services can be life-changing for patients who have put off dental care because of their anxiety. If you or your loved ones get nervous or scared about a visit to a dentist office, sedation dentistry can help.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Our oral conscious sedation method is a type of oral sedation dentistry procedure that is administered to a patient by tablet. We will give you a tablet to take before you come to our office. Once you arrive, our team will make you comfortable and assess if further medication is needed. If you take an oral conscious sedation tablet, you will need to arrange for a ride to and from the dentist office.
Nitrous oxide sedation is a sedation dentistry procedure that is administered using nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas. The gas is fast acting, and dissipates quickly enough after the procedure that you are safe to drive.
Both of these methods are completely safe, effective and reliable. No matter which method you choose, you will get to enjoy the full benefits of sedation dentistry, including:
- Oral sedation dentistry patients feel completely relaxed and comfortable during their appointment.
- Anxious patients will find that their anxiety has been alleviated.
- In many instances, patients using conscious sedation have reported that they have little or no memory of the appointment.
- Patients who use either sedation dentistry method are awake enough to answer questions and remain conscious, but they are in such a deep state of relaxation that even if they’ve experienced anxiety in the past, the procedure will go smoothly.
