Sedation dentistry in San Antonio
If going to the dentist makes you anxious and nervous, you’re like a lot of people! Don’t let your anxiety keep you from a healthy mouth. Sedation dentistry is available and makes your dental visit safe and comfortable. “Sleep sedation” is not the same as general anesthesia. With sedation dentistry, your oxygen levels and heart rate are monitored during the entire procedure.
“Oral conscious sedation” is when you’re given a pill an hour before your appointment. Depending on your level of anxiety, you may take an additional pill(s) when you arrive. You drift off to sleep while we work on your teeth, and when you wake up, your ride is waiting to take you home. It’s a simple way to get treatment you otherwise might not get. Our goal is to make you comfortable while restoring and maintaining your excellent oral health.
