Patients who have been avoiding visits to the dentist out of stress, fear, or anxiety, can now take major steps forward in achieving better oral health and overall wellness. At our dental office in the Huntsville, AL area, you can stay stress- and pain-free dentistry with sedation dentistry.
What is Sedation Dentistry?
Dental sedation continues to become more popular and more widely available as more people learn about the benefits of dental sedation and the ability to experience pain-free dentistry. Sedation dentistry is a great way to help patients who have been avoiding the dentist because of fear or anxiety.
At Jennifer Perkins, DDS, we can use sedation dentistry in conjunction with any of the treatments we offer, including routine checkups and teeth cleanings. With our available sedation options, we can make your appointments seemingly fly by, while calming your nerves and ensuring your entire experience is pain-free.
For patients with serious dental anxiety, our oral sedation has been a game-changer. When you visit our Huntsville, AL dental office, let us know if this is an issue for you. Because oral conscious sedation involves using anti-anxiety medication before your appointment, we will discuss it in advance to make sure things go smoothly.
When the day of your cleaning or treatment arrives, you will take a pill, usually before you arrive at our office. You will still be conscious enough to follow directions and respond to us. However, because you will ease into a very relaxed state and potentially feel very drowsy, you will need someone to drive you to and from our office for your appointment.
Many patients are able to stop using sedation as they get to know our caring team. We want you to feel comfortable anytime you are in our office. It’s why we offer amenities such as:
- Blankets and pillows
- Televisions so keep you occupied
We’ve also heard from patients who feel stress about the cost of dental care. It’s one of the reasons we are happy to offer flexible payment options, so you can find the right one for you and your budget. This includes financing with CareCredit for complex procedures.
