All Levels of Sedation – Sedation Dentistry Denver NC
Dental phobia is much more common than patients realize. Patients of all ages may have a fear of the dentist for various reasons. Regardless, Drs. Nathen Ellis and Gary Hubbard of Denver Dental Arts work routinely with patients who are uneasy about visiting the dentist’s chair. If you deal with dental phobia and live in the area of Denver, NC, our team welcomes you to learn about all levels of sedation available with our sedation dentistry services.
What types of sedation are available?
Sedation allows patients who are nervous or unsure about having dental work done to have a positive dental office experience. The two levels of sedation we provide include:
- Oral conscious sedation – oral conscious sedation is one way for our team of professionals to help put patients at ease. Prescription medication is filled before the appointment, and patients take their medication approximately one hour before they are transported to our facility for their dental work. Patients are awake, coherent, and able to ask and answer questions during treatment while fully relaxed. Patients are transported back home to rest and often awaken with little memories of their appointment—but with their dental work completed. This is great for patients with mild to moderate levels of anxiety.
- IV sedation – for patients who need a deeper level of sedation for higher, more severe levels of anxiety, we offer IV sedation. This type of sedation requires us to bring in an anesthesiologist to monitor the patient throughout their procedure and offer the proper levels of sedation to help them through their procedure.
