Sedation Dentistry is a safe procedure that enables you to feel more relaxed during periodontic treatments. Those who typically benefit are patients who either have a fear of dental treatment, or have dental issues that require sedation during treatment. An anesthesiologist administers the medication, and you will begin to feel relaxed and numb. You are not put into a complete sleep, you enter a state known as “twilight sleep”. In this state, you will be able to fully relax for a long period of time.
Sedation Dentistry has many benefits, including the fact that it allows you to relax and avoid fatigue during long procedures. You will also have little to no memory of the procedure itself. Patients with sensitive teeth or bad gag reflexes will also benefit tremendously.
Dr. Jason C. Stoner and Dr. Daniel Murphy administer IV sedation at their Dublin and New Albany offices in Columbus, Ohio. Please contact us for more information to find out how you will benefit from sedation dentistry during periodontal treatments.
