Do you offer sedation?
Many patients avoid seeing the dentist for routine care or put off treatment for a problem until it has spread and become a painful situation. We want to make it easier for everyone to get the care they need when they need it. Your safety and comfort are important to us.
Ponce de Leon Family Dentistry offers oral sedation for patients who struggle with dental fear or anxiety. You simply take a prescribed pill before your appointment. Once the medication takes effect, you will feel calm and relaxed. Some patients become so relaxed that they actually fall asleep during their procedure! This also makes it easier for anyone who needs more extensive treatment because we can complete more procedures in a single visit, which prevents you from having to return to the office multiple times.
Because the medication does not cause you to lose consciousness, you will be able to ask and answer questions during your treatment. Time may seem to speed up and the sounds of the dental office, which some people find bothersome, will fade into the background and be barely noticeable.
If you have put off dental care because of fears, please call us today to find out more about sedation dentistry and see it is right for you.
