Many patients have a fear of the dentist that goes beyond just anxiety and regular nervousness. For many patients the fear of dental work or procedures can prevent them from going to our Watertown sedation dentist at Johnson Creek Dental Group. That’s why we provide sedation dentistry, which can help you feel better about getting procedures done over time. Some procedures take longer than others, and that’s when sedation dentistry comes in handy.
Whether it’s getting procedures done, sitting in the dentist’s chair, or having an exam, we know when it comes to these and other types of dental work, patients can get dental anxiety. Sedation dentistry makes it easy for high-anxiety patients to have both large and small procedures done so that they, too, can have healthy teeth. Sedation dentistry with our Watertown sedation dentist is a safe and easy procedure that allows patients with high anxiety to have their dental procedures done. Some dental procedures can be simple and quick, but others such as root canals, can take more time, causing more anxiety for those who suffer.
Sedation dentistry allows us to put the patient in a relaxed state so that they are at ease during their procedures. The sedation dentistry is either done by our sedation dentist or by a licensed anesthesiologist, depending on the procedure. Sedation dentistry is also ideal for those who are allergic to local anesthesia, or for special needs children and adults who have trouble staying calm. We provide a safe and warm environment for our patients to relax in and our methods can be done either by light sedative or total anesthesia. Our Watertown sedation dentist offers conscious sedation, a procedure in which we administer sedatives orally, or by inhalation method. All types of sedation are performed in a safe and controlled manner.
