Creative Dental’s main goal is to create a safe and comfortable dental experience for all of our patients. To facilitate that for patients who suffer from dental anxiety, Creative Dental offers sedation dentistry in conjunction with a physician, Glen Atlas, M.D., M.Sc, to ensure the safest most comfortable procedures for our patients. We provide full sedation during surgical dental procedures upon request and have various levels of sedation to accommodate patient needs. For patients with dental anxiety, traditional numbing agents and oral sedation aren’t usually enough. Such instances are when IV sedation administered by a qualified anesthetist helps patients in need of lengthy or multiple procedures during one visit. IV sedation allows patients with dental anxiety to feel comfortable and at ease during dental treatments.
Additional sedation dentistry options include oral sedatives administered 30-60 minutes before a procedure. Oral sedatives don’t provide pain relief so patients may also receive an injection of a local anesthetic.
At Creative Dental, we’re dedicated to providing a relaxing and positive dental experience for every patient. If you’re someone who suffers from dental anxiety, contact Creative Dental to ask about sedation dentistry.
