Do visits to the dental office make you extremely nervous? Wish there was a way to take care of your dental health while sleeping? At Seven Dental we are proud to offer a variety of Phoenix sedation dentistry options including oral conscious sedation, IV sedation, and even anxiolysis.
For those with mild to moderate dental anxiety, anxiolysis can be an excellent option. Anxiolysis is oral sedation that involves using a light sedative. Patients remain able to breathe, talk and communicate with staff during their treatment, however, are put in a state of relaxation.
Following anxiolysis sedation dentistry, you will be able to drive and continue with your day.
When it comes to sedation dentistry, oral conscious sedation is just as easy as taking your daily vitamin. With oral conscious sedation, patients remain awake during the treatment, however, are in a state of relaxation and euphoria. Oral conscious sedation is an affordable form of sedation which allows the patient to follow directions and communicate during treatment.
With oral conscious sedation, you will need a driver to return you safely from your appointment.
For those with more severe dental anxiety, IV sedation can be an excellent option. With IV sedation, medication is delivered directly to the bloodstream, making it quicker and more effective. Although you will remain awake during your treatment, most patients do not remember the experience. A local anesthetic is also provided to the area, ensuring no discomfort or pain.
IV sedation also requires a driver to return you home safely following your appointment.
