We Specialize in Sedation Dentistry to Help Soothe Patient's Fears By SEO Admin on May 27, 2013

If you are like a lot of people, then you probably get nervous when you find out that you need to have dental work done. The good news is that there is sedation dentistry available today. Sedation dentistry involves the use of pharmacological agents to help the patient relax. These agents work by depressing the activity of the central nervous system. Some people may refer to sedation dentistry as stress free dentistry.

Your South Charlotte sedation dentist will give you a sedative prior to your procedure.

You will be awake during your procedure, but you will be able to relax. Even though you stay awake during your procedure, you probably will not remember anything about it once it has been completed. This is also known as oral conscious sedation. However, some patients get very relaxed and end up falling asleep during their procedure and our dental staff is watching over you carefully making sure you are in the best care possible making your visit comfortable and relaxing.

Sedation dentistry not only benefits the patient, but it also benefits the dentist. Our dentists will be able to get more done in less time and in some cases, they may be able to perform multiple procedures in one day if your treatment requires.

In addition to sedation, there are a number of other things that can be used for stress free dentistry. Some of those things include massage pads, aromatherapy and paraffin hand treatments. If you want to find out whether you are a candidate for sedation dentistry, then you should contact your South Charlotte sedation dentist today. Most people who have anxieties about dental procedures will be a good candidate for sedation dentistry.
