Enjoy Visits to the Dentist Office with Sedation Dentistry
Imagine achieving a perfect smile comfortably without any fear of the dentist office. Thousands of patients are enjoying their visits to the dental office thanks to sedation dentistry.
With sedation dentistry, your dentist will give you an oral sedative or small pill to take before coming to the dentist’s office. Since the pill will make you drowsy, you should arrange to have a friend or companion drive you to and from your dental appointment.
The oral sedation will put you in a dream-like state, where you are unable to feel anxiety or pain, and you will emerge from your visit with little or no memory of your actual treatment. This form of sedation dentistry does not require a breathing apparatus and is safer than general anesthesia which has significant risks.
At Ballantyne Center for Dentistry in Charlotte, North Carolina, not only do they use the latest techniques, materials, and technology, but they use sedation dentistry as well.
DOCS (Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation) certify both Dr. Christian Yaste and Dr. Joseph Hufanda in oral sedation. This proven technique means that you remain calm and comfortable through an entire dental visit.
Contact a dentist in your area and find out if you are a good candidate for sedation dentistry.
