Do you dread sitting in the dentist’s chair while waiting for treatment? Studies show that among Americans’ greatest phobias include the fear of going to the dentist!

In my Fort Lauderdale sedation dentistry office I offer a safe and effective treatment  for patients suffering from dental phobia. Oral sedation dentistry leaves patients relaxed and comfortable, unlike their past experiences with dental appointments.

The Sedation Dentistry Process

Sedation dentistry is available for patients in the form of different methods. They dull the pain and rid patients of any discomfort during the procedure. Among these methods are:

  • Intravenous (IV) sedation – Introduced in the system through the veins, this method is safe and effective when administered by a licensed Fort Lauderdale sedation dentist.
  • Nitrous oxide – Commonly known as laughing gas, it is another sedation method used to establish a relaxed, easy, and calm state while fully conscious.
  • Oral sedation – The most common procedure used to alleviate patient anxiety.

I am licensed to provide ‘one-pill’ sedation for patients seeking anxiety-free treatment.

As a patient of oral sedation dentistry, you maintain a level of consciousness so you can respond to the dentist’s instructions throughout the treatment. You will, however, feel no pain.

Tips for Sedation Dentistry Patients

  1. If you are apprehensive about major dental treatments, notify our attendant as soon as you make an appointment. This way the sedation pill is guaranteed to be available in advance.
  2. With our sedation method, you will receive the pill on an earlier visit with further instructions via the phone on how to take the sedative before coming to our Fort Lauderdale dental clinic.
  3. We recommend you ask a friend or family member to drive you home and accompany you. It is not advisable for a patient who has undergone oral sedation to drive for a couple of hours.
