Sedation dentistry is used for patients who have dental anxieties. It is common for patients of all ages to experience fears and nervousness surrounding dental appointments. Some patients have had a negative dental experience in the past, while others have a fear of the “unknown.” Personal space may also be an issue for patients who are unhappy with close contact with others. When situations such as this arise, it can keep patients from getting the dental care they need to maintain a healthy smile. This is why we encourage patients to learn more about ways to reduce their anxieties with sedation dentistry.
At the practice of Dr. Clint Bruyere, patients can have oral conscious sedation. This is an oral medication that is taken before the dental visit. This medication allows patients to relax before they arrive at the office. Patients are awake and coherent and can follow simple instructions with ease. However, this medication may make them feel sleepy. Patients are required to arrange transportation for their appointment, and afterwards, they should rest. After they awaken, they may have little to no recollection of the visit, but will enjoy their completed treatment and beautiful, healthy smile!
