Sedation Dentistry

Complete Comfort During Your Dental Care with Sedation Dentistry
Sedation Dentistry in Savannah GA
We understand that a trip to the dentist can be a difficult experience for some people. Shots, drills, and the use of all the necessary instruments can create anxiety. But now, we can alleviate all the fears and worries of the dentally challenged. With conscious sedation dentistry, these patients will become calm and not remember the treatment.

With just a single pill you take an hour before your appointment, you will begin to feel increasingly relaxed as you sit down in the dental chair. Gradually, your sedation will deepen, but you are still conscious enough to answer questions from the doctor. You will be put on a monitor for observation of your vital signs throughout the treatment. When the procedure is completed, a friend or family member will drive you home. After about an hour, you will be back to normal.

Relaxed Dental Treatment Savannah GAUnlike sedation for surgery, you are not totally unconscious, just unaware of the work being performed. This level of sedation works well for those who have a greater fear of being completely “put under.” This fear is typically based on relinquishing control. That’s why conscious sedation works well for most patient anxieties.

Other patients may need to have more work completed in a single visit. They cannot make repeated visits to the dentist, so accomplishing more work in one longer visit with suitable sedation accommodates their needs. And then some patients are resistant to anesthesia and need conscious sedation in addition to the regular anesthesia to have dental work performed.

We are one of the few practices in the state qualified to administer a full range of sedation options, including IV sedation. We also offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) for lighter sedation. We offer this array of options to let all of our patients feel comfortable and relaxed throughout their dental treatments.
