Relaxation dentistry is something we take seriously around here. In fact, we are actually certified to offer three great dental sedation solutions that can be used to complement virtually every oral health procedure that you would ever need at our Royal Oak, MI office. Plus, we’ll make it easy to get the care you need in other ways too.
A Caring Team Can Make A Big Difference
Our dentists will be here to make sure you understand what is going to happen at every step of your procedure. We’ll also help you determine which of the following forms of sedation dentistry will work best for you, given your current anxiety level, the particular treatments that will be performed, your overall medical history, and other factors. Regardless of which type of sedation you choose, our caring staff will monitor you throughout your procedure.
Inhaled sedation is a mild sedative that comes in a gaseous form. It can relieve your nerves when you get here but still wear off in time for you to drive yourself home from our office. For this kind of sedation, our team will fit a nosepiece on you so you can begin to breathe in the gas mixture. Soon you’ll begin to feel completely at ease about whatever needs to happen next.
Take It Further With Oral Sedation
If there is a hierarchy to relaxation dentistry solutions, oral sedation would be the next highest level of dental sedation after laughing gas. As such, it takes your experience a little deeper. This is why oral sedation is ideal for longer treatments or for our patients who have higher levels of anxiety and require more help relaxing. It helps with gag reflexes as well.
Here’s the deal: you’ll be prescribed a sedative in pill form to take before you come in for your appointment. Then you just sit back and relax while we get down to business. Like we said, oral sedation is stronger than inhaled sedation. So, you might not remember much about your dental treatment. Plus, oral sedation lasts longer, so you’ll definitely want to locate a ride home.
Go All The Way With IV Sedation
Let’s be clear: many other dental offices are NOT currently qualified to offer IV sedation. That’s because this is the strongest form of dental sedation out there. Fortunately for you, our team has gone through the special training and certification process so that we can provide it here.
With IV sedation, we can accomplish far more dental work in a shorter period of time. And because it is the strongest option, you are not likely to remember any of it. Don’t plan on driving that day!
