Albuquerque Sedation Dentistry Services
When you need sedation dentistry services, visit Sanchez Dental. We’re committed to restoring our patient’s smiles and self-confidence without the pain, anxiety and guilt trips you might associate with other dentists.
What Sedation Services Do We Offer?
We practice oral conscious sedation. This means that you’ll be awake but deeply relaxed throughout the procedure. Conscious sedation avoids many of the risks associated with general anesthesia, and it’s generally a safe and totally effective method for eliminating anxiety and pain during dental work.
Oral sedation is achieved through taking a pill. The sedative is similar to Valium, and it will cause calmness, drowsiness and short-term memory loss. In other words, you’ll be totally relaxed throughout the procedure and likely won’t remember a thing afterward!
Who Is a Good Candidate for Sedation Dentistry?
We offer sedation dentistry services to all of our patients, regardless of what type of procedure they’re getting. It’s not our job to judge whether something “requires” sedation – if you would feel more comfortable being sedated, we will accommodate you!
Before we perform any procedure, we’ll complete a thorough check-up to assess your current oral and general health. We’ll ask about your medical history and other medications to rule out the possibility of any side effects or complications. In most cases, sedation is completely safe for all patients, and we’ll be careful to monitor the dosage so that you’ll achieve exactly the level of sedation you desire.
If fear has kept you out of the dentist’s chair, sedation dentistry could be the answer to your problems. Give us a call to learn more about our services and schedule a consultation today!
