Sedation Dentistry at Birchmount Dental Group
At Birchmount Dental Group, we offer a range of different sedation services to make your experience as pleasant as possible. We recognize the importance of good dental hygiene and realize that fear comes into play, preventing some people from seeing their dentist regularly. We have options to help ease the fear associated with dental work.
We offer various sedation options for those who are anxious or nervous. We work with you to figure out the best course of action for your treatment. We can help children and adults with excess fear of the dentist, in additon to patients with a strong gag reflex, and even those with a fear of dental freezing.
This is an effective option for nervous patients who would benefit from the relaxing side effects of oral medication at the right dosage, to induce sleep. This helps with anxiety and provides conscious relaxation throughout the dental procedure.
IV Sedation & General Anesthesia
At Birchmount Dental Group, we have an onsite anesthesiologist who assists with both IV sedation and general anesthesia.
During IV sedation (Intravenous), the patient stays conscious and can communicate with the dentist at all times.
Some patients find it easier to go under general anesthesia rendering them unconscious for the whole procedure, and then leisurely waking up when it is done.
Each patient is different and we can help you in deciding what is best for you.
