Patients Often Feel Dental Anxiety, We Can Help.
If dental fear or anxiety has been holding you back from getting the treatment you need, talk to us about sedation dentistry options. Our practice features intravenous (IV) sedation, oral sedation, nitrous oxide (laughing gas), and general anesthesia for our patients who are undergoing more complex procedures, or those who have serious dental anxiety. Dental anesthesia allows dental professionals to address a variety of ailments while keeping the patient calm and relaxed.
How Does the Sedation Dentistry Process Work?
The type of sedation recommended by your dental anesthesiologist varies depending on several factors such as the type of treatment you are receiving, your level of anxiety, and your overall health. These options can be discussed during your consultation and all our patients are encouraged to ask any questions they may have about the sedation dentistry process. Dental anesthesia is necessary for oral surgeries that require an extended period and the patient to remain as still as possible.
Our Options for Anxiety-Free Treatment
Used for the most complex, invasive dental procedures such as full mouth dental implant placement, general anesthesia is a combination of medications that renders you totally unconscious. Only specially trained practitioners like the ones we have on staff here at Shin Huh, DMD, PC can provide this level of dental anesthesia.
