Sedation can take the fear and pain out of dentistry.
It is safe, affordable, and makes dentistry comfortable. Also known as sleep dentistry, sedation dentistry helps eliminate the pain and fear commonly associated with dental visits by administering laughing gas(nitrous oxide) or an easy to swallow, small pill.
The hardest step for the fearful patient is coming to their first office visit. Often times, it has been years since a patient has been seen by a dentist. Sometimes embarrassment as much as anxiety will prevent individuals from seeing a dentist.
What types of patients benefit from Sedation?
- Highly phobic or anxious
- Special needs
- Mentally handicapped
- Physically handicapped
- Dealing with limited free time
What procedures are done under Sedation?
Sedation dentistry is individualized for each patient at Dental On Central. Dr. Herro does not believe in the “one size fits all” approach. At your sedation consultation, Dr. Herro will review the patient’s medical history and specific special needs. Together with the patient and their loved ones, treatment options will be discussed and a plan will be formulated to most effectively and comfortably offer dental treatment.
Whether its Oral Sedation, IV Sedation, or General Anesthesia, we can remove the fear, anxiety and pain associated with dentistry.
