Sedation dentistry allows our team to provide more complex dental services and deliver exceptional patient experiences for those who suffer from dental anxiety or fear. We provide oral sedation in our North Canton, Cuyahoga Falls, and Hudson, OH, offices to help those overcome their anxiety and feel relaxed during their appointments. Along with helping to calm apprehensive patients and helping to block sensations of pain, sedation dentistry can also assist patients with a sensitive gag reflex, those who have difficulty sitting still, and patients concerned about the sights and sounds associated with dental appointments. Sedation dentistry is safe and effective under our supervision and can provide you with the relaxation you need to feel comfortable and calm during your visit.
Oral sedation is ideal for patients with mild to moderate dental anxiety or fear. This type of sedation dentistry addresses these issues while also helping to manage pain during the procedure. Oral sedation is taken in pill form an hour before your appointment, with sedative effects lasting anywhere from 2-6 hours, allowing us to achieve necessary procedures while you are in a sleepy and relaxed state. Along with providing calming experiences, oral sedation also produces a state of amnesia for patients and many have little-to-no recollection of the actual appointment, though they are able to respond to commands during the procedure. We will be able to determine your candidacy for sedation dentistry at your consultation, along with providing you with all the information you need to feel confident in your sedation choice and undergoing treatment with us.
