Are you a patient who would prefer a more relaxed, anxiety-free dental experience? Conscious sedation dentistry may be right for you. Our practices can manage both pain and anxiety to create a comfortable, pain-free, and anxiety-free dental experience. By using a closely monitored prescription medication throughout your procedure, your dental experience will be one of relaxation and free of any discomfort.
Dental Wellness Tip:
Dentistry can be anxiety-free and pain-free under a relaxing state of light sedation.
Comfort and relaxation are not the only benefits of conscious sedation. In addition, because of the relaxing effects of the sedation, you are able to complete several appointments worth of dentistry in a single setting. While under conscious sedation, you will maintain a safe, minimally depressed level of consciousness and retain your ability to independently and continuously breathe and respond to physical stimulation and verbal commands. After the end of your procedure, we suggest that you take the rest of the day off, relax at your home, and return to work the next day.
Your appointment for sedation dentistry will begin with a thorough review of your medical history. We will take time to further explain what you might expect with sedation dentistry and answer any questions that you may have. The procedure is very safe, and every staff member at our Prospect, KY office has received additional training by DOCS Sedation Education to ensure a predictably safe and relaxing experience. We can complete any type of dental work under this relaxing experience, including crowns, root canals, or even routine fillings.
Conscious sedation is commonly used in dentistry, is safe and predictably effective. Time passes as if you were asleep, while you are actually awake in a light state of sedation. Please visit Lavelle Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Propsect, KY and meet with us for a consultation. We will be happy to answer your questions and help you decide if this relaxing, anxiety-free, and pain-free type of dentistry is right for you.
