Many patients avoid dental appointments and treatment because they are too nervous to visit the dentist.
We want you to know that sedation dentistry can help you feel calm before and during your appointments.
At Sonoran Dental Design in Scottsdale, AZ, we administer sedation dentistry safely so you get the dental care you need.
Why Undergo Sedation Dentistry?
First, sedation dentistry allows you to feel relaxed the day of the appointment, knowing that you will be under the effects of a sedative. After taking the sedative, you can feel calm for the duration of your dental visit at our Scottsdale practice.
In addition, by attending routine dental exams and cleanings and addressing dental problems early, our dentist can help you avoid the need for more extensive dental treatment later on. This can help you avoid higher costs and discomfort in the future.
If you have delayed undergoing dentistry treatment for years because of your fear of the dentist, sedation dentistry can allow you to comfortably get the care you need to restore the health, comfort, function, and appearance of your smile.
How We Monitor Your Safety
Our Commitment to You
Throughout your appointment, we will monitor your blood pressure readings and use a pulse oximeter to make sure you are responding safely to the sedation. When proper dosages are prescribed by dentists, sedation with oral medication is extremely safe.
When Is Sedation Appropriate?
Depending on your level of dental anxiety, we may recommend sedation dentistry to patients undergoing:
- Routine dental exams and cleanings
- More involved dental treatments such as the placement of dental fillings, crowns, bridges, periodontal care, tooth extractions, and more
- Longer appointments that require multiple dental procedures to be performed at once
Sedation may also be appropriate for dentistry patients that have:
- Extreme dental anxiety
- Difficulty sitting still for long periods of time
- Difficulty sitting comfortably for long periods due to conditions like arthritis
- Severe gag reflex
- Special needs or disabilities
