Improve Your Dental Experience With Sedation Dentistry in Plantation, FL
For some, visiting the dentist is a normal routine that helps them maintain good oral health. For others, even a regular dental checkup and cleaning can cause a significant amount of anxiety. At LG Dental Studio, we want everyone who comes through our doors to feel welcome and relaxed during treatment. To help us achieve this goal, we offer safe and effective sedation dentistry. We understand there are varying degrees of dental anxiety, so we will help you choose the sedative that’s most appropriate for your level of anxiety.
Oral anesthetic is designed to be taken approximately one hour before your dental appointment. The most common type is Halcion, which comes from the same family as the drug Valium. Oral anesthetic is a great solution for those with:
• High pain sensitivity
• Dental anxiety
• Sensitive gag reflex
Oral sedation is also recommended for complicated dental procedures, including tooth extractions, dental implants and oral surgery. Oral sedatives are safe, effective and can make dental treatment a more comfortable and relaxing experience. Keep in mind that the effects of oral sedatives often linger after treatment is complete. For your safety and the safety of those around you, we strongly recommend that you arrange for a ride home after your dental appointment.
Dental anesthetic is the most popular type of sedation dentistry. It is administered via needle to the treatment site and numbs the area. We offer reverse anesthetic to reverse the effects of local anesthesia once treatment is complete. That means you won’t need to worry about remaining numb for hours after your appointment.
