Sedation Dentistry at Your Fort Atkinson Family Dental Office

If you have ever had to have a wisdom tooth pulled or a dental implant placed, you may already be aware of the benefits of sedation dentistry. Used as a safe and reliable means of encouraging relaxing sedation for patients with various dental needs, sedation dentistry may be recommended for you for one of the following common reasons. 

Common Reasons to Use Sedation Dentistry

Curious about sedation dentistry at your next dental appointment? Give us a call at (920) 563-9373 to learn more or schedule a consultation. 

  • Calm dental anxiety, dental phobia or a fear of the dentist

  • Reduce tooth sensitivity or a sensitive gag reflex

  • Oral sedation can be used for patients with a fear of needles

  • Recommended for lengthy or complex dental procedures

  • Effective for patients who cannot get numb with regular anesthetic

Oral Conscious Sedation

At your consultation, Dr. Garrison will carefully review your medical history with you before determining if you are a good candidate for needle-free sedation dentistry with oral conscious sedation. She will also walk you through everything you need to know about the process to feel confident and in control, even before any treatment begins. 

Oral conscious sedation refers to the use of a small pill that is easily ingested, so you can begin to feel relaxed even before your appointment begins. During the process you remain awake enough to respond to your dentist, yet you may feel sleepy. Once the treatment is over, we highly recommend having a friend or family member drive you home, where the effects of sedative medicine will wear off quickly.

What is Dental Phobia or Dental Anxiety?

It’s not uncommon to experience some level of anxiety when going to the dentist. Do I have a cavity? Did I floss enough? Even though most treatments at the dentist aren’t painful, for some making the trip to see the dentist can be intimidating or become debilitating.

Dental anxiety, or having a fear of the dentist, is a real issue that keeps millions of patients out of the dental chair even when they need dental care the most. If you have a hard time going to the dentist, our team at Highland Dental understands. As your local family dentist our goal is to help you achieve your best level of oral health in a warm and friendly environment, using only the gentlest methods of dental care.
