Are you afraid to go to the dentist? If so, sedation dentistry may be perfect for you.
Sedation dentistry refers to the use of drugs to calm and relax a patient prior to and during a dental appointment.
The sedative methods used for sedation dentistry vary in strength and purpose. Dr. Friscia will select the sedation dentistry option that is best for you based on the treatments performed, how long these procedures will take and your level of anxiety.
Levels of sedation range from mild, to moderate, to deep and are achieved through different types of sedatives. According to the Academy of General Dentistry, sedation is safe. In order to ensure that the appropriate sedatives are used, Dr. Friscia will require a medical history and list of all medications you are taking – including over the counter products and herbal supplements.
