Sedation Dentistry in Tucson, AZ
Sedation dentistry was developed because many patients have the need for dental treatments in a calm and relaxed environment. There are patients who experience severe anxiety, tension before and during a dental procedure. We, at Smile Tucson, therefore, offer sedation dentistry as a great way for you to feel relaxed and less stressed prior to and during your dental treatment. Dental care is important. Fear should not stop you from seeing the dentist. With sedation dentistry, you can overcome your fears and allow Dr. Garcia to perform the necessary treatments for your oral health.
Dr. Garcia uses only safe and regulated products for oral sedation. Your safety and comfort are very important to us. You can trust that we keep these things in mind when performing sedation, just like any other time that you are in our dental chair.
Sedation Dentistry offers a lot of advantages. These benefits are as follows:
- Our dentist can perform many dental treatments in a single visit.
- You are relaxed and sleepy during a procedure.
- Patients who have the inability to control their movements can get dental treatments done easily and quickly.
- Patients with a severe gag reflex can get dental care done comfortably.
- Active children can easily settle down with nitrous gas.
Sedation dentistry comes in different forms depending on your needs, and the dental procedures you are having performed. Dr. Garcia may ask you to take a light tranquilizer before your scheduled visit so you won’t feel any tension or anxiety prior to your dentist appointment. You are, therefore, required to have a friend or relative accompany you during this time. Your companion will have to drive you to the office and back home after the procedure.
In addition to light tranquilizers, sedation dentistry also includes local anesthesia and nitrous gas. Often the oral sedation and nitrous gas can be combined to have a more potent sedative effect. Dr. Garcia will make sure that you get the smallest effective dosage for your size and dental treatment requirements. She will also explain the entire process, so you’ll get a picture of what’s going to happen. Before you know it, your dental appointment is complete and your teeth are restored to good health!
Dr. Garcia and our team are well-trained and experienced to handle the various types of sedation dentistry for patients of all ages. We may need to conduct x-rays before the actual treatment, in addition to collecting information from you about your medical history, allergies and current medications. We at Smile Tucson only want what’s best for you. We will do everything in our capacity to provide you with high quality, safe dental care.
