Sedation Dentistry in Cornelius Near Lake Norman and Huntersville
Do you have dental anxiety? We offer help at Welborne, White, & Schmidt Dentistry.
Welborne, White, & Schmidt Dentistry offers the option of sedation dentistry to our patients in the Cornelius, Lake Norman, and Charlotte areas. Sedation dentistry, also called conscious sedation or sleep dentistry, involves the use of anesthesia during dental treatment to reduce patient anxiety and help ensure complete comfort. If you are one of the millions of people who experience high levels of anxiety connected with dental treatment, sedation dentistry can help.
While not actually asleep, sedation dentistry patients are in a totally relaxed and comfortable state. Patients are able to respond to questions from the doctor but are minimally conscious of the procedure and often remember little to nothing of it afterward. The sedation dentistry team at our Lake Norman area office will carefully monitor your vital signs throughout the dental procedure to ensure your utmost safety.
Types of Sedation Dentistry
We offer a variety of different sedation dentistry options. You can choose from either oral sedation or IV conscious sedation to help reduce feelings of dental anxiety.
Conscious Oral Sedation
In oral sedation dentistry, you are given a pill to take before treatment. The pill will make you sleepy and less aware of your surroundings, though you will remain conscious. Effects can last up to four hours.
IV Conscious Sedation
For IV conscious sedation, anesthesia is administered intravenously as you relax in our Cornelius, NC dental office. IV sedation is a safe and highly effective way of treating patients with moderate to severe dental anxiety. Patients are totally relaxed during treatment and rarely remember their dental procedure.
In addition to helping those with dental phobia and patients who feel anxious about dental treatment, sedation dentistry can help our Lake Norman area patients who are too busy to return for multiple visits to get their dental work completed. With patients in a fully relaxed state, our dentists can perform much more comprehensive work than would otherwise be possible – often eliminating the need for return visits.
