If you have dental anxiety or phobia, sedation dentistry options will allow you to remain calm and comfortable during your dental procedures. Many people put off general preventative dentistry because their fear of the dentist is too much to bear. Your Anchorage, Alaska, general dentist has a number of ways to keep you calm and comfortable during your dental visit.
Oral Conscious Sedation is a hugely popular and highly effective means to keep patients calm. During your visit, you will be awake but may experience some sleepiness as the medication helps your brain and body relax. Depending on your needs, we may give you more or less medication to help you overcome your dental anxiety.
Our dental team knows how much sedative to give so you are comfortable throughout your treatment. Since oral sedatives wear off fairly quickly, you can drive home safely after your appointment. Once your appointment ends, we’ll have you wait in our office until you’re well enough to drive.
