Sedation Dentistry in Omaha
Anxiety, nervousness, and the fear of pain are what keep many from seeing their dentist regularly. This mindset is what stops you from preserving or enhancing your smile. IV sedation dentistry can be the solution you need to settle your anxiety and apprehensions. Dr. Henley is a certified practitioner of this technique, which helpsin general dentistry, andaesthetic and restorative treatments. With it, you will hardly have any recollections of the procedure – only a relaxed and comfortable experience.
There are two major reasons you will have a more comfortable experience. First is IV sedation induces deep relaxation – ridding you of all your fears and hesitations. The second reason is the medicine used can trigger partial memory loss–from when the drug starts to work until it wears off. Time passes quickly and it will feel like you were asleep the whole time. The best part of it all is it’s completely safe!
Sedation dentistry is an available option for most procedures at Armbrust Dental. Its safety and effectiveness make it a sensible choice for complicated and major procedures. It is also available in case you experience extreme anxiety or would rather be unconscious for the duration of the procedure.
Not every patient is an ideal candidate for sedation dentistry. The technique is not suitable for patients with conditions such as:
- Known allergies to benzodiazepines
- Continued alcohol intoxication and abuse
- Central nervous system (CNS) depression
- Some cases of glaucoma
This technique also isn’t recommended for patients with psychosis; impaired lungs, kidneys, or liver functions; and old age. Schedule a consultation with us to see if sedation dentistry will work for you.
