Benefits of Sedation Dentistry
Sedation allows our patients to receive the dental care they need and want while in a state of complete relaxation. Sedation dentistry is especially beneficial for patients who have:
- High anxiety or fear about visiting the dentist
- Complex dental problems
- Difficulty getting numb
- An above normal gag reflex
Our dentists find that sedation dentistry is an excellent option for completing multiple procedures (which would normally take several visits) in just one visit, such as with a smile makeover or full-mouth restoration.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Our dentists offer the oral conscious method of sedation dentistry. Before a visit, you will take an oral sedative in the form of a small pill which immediately helps you feel relaxed. By the time your procedure begins, you will be completely relaxed but remain conscious so that you can respond to questions and requests from your dentist and team. The oral sedative puts you in a relaxed state in which you will completely comfortable, and you will emerge from treatment with little or no memory of the details.
How Does the Oral Conscious Sedation Process Work?
Step One: Schedule your appointment. Schedule an appointment at our practice to discuss oral conscious sedation with Dr. Casey at Casey Family Dental. This first step can be difficult for patients with dental anxiety, so our friendly staff will make it as easy as possible.
Step Two: Attend your welcoming visit. During your welcoming visit, we will gather important information about your health, and our dentists will discuss with you your goals and desires for treatment. We may take the necessary X-rays and examine your teeth and gums. Some patients may need mild sedation for the X-rays and periodontal screening. Dr. Casey will also help you determine if oral conscious sedation dentistry is right for you. You can rest assured that we will help make your first visit with us as comfortable as possible.
Step Three: Prepare for your treatment. We will give you a sedative to take the night before your sedation dentistry visit at our practice in Liberty Lake. This sedative will help you get a full night’s sleep so that you wake up relaxed and ready for your treatment.
Step Four: Treatment with sedation dentistry. On the day of your visit, you will need to have a companion bring you to our office. We will give you medications to help you feel completely relaxed. During your treatment, our experienced team will monitor you to ensure you remain completely comfortable.
Step Five: Recover from your treatment. After your appointment, you will return home with your new smile. Your companion will take you home and care for you until you’ve completely recovered from sedation.
Step Six: Smile with confidence. During the next day, most patients feel no residual effects or discomfort from the sedation dentistry visit. You can be free to smile with confidence with your new, dazzling smile.
