Sedation Dentistry

CarolinasDentist Provides the Relief of Sedation Dentistry

You’re bound to find that with any oral surgery, there’s the possibility that you may have some discomfort during your procedure. That’s just part of the territory that we have to travel down to when treating some dental problems. And that’s where a good bit of our behind-the-scenes works starts. Because at CarolinasDentist, we fully understand that dental anxiety can become an obstacle to taking care good of your teeth. More than 20 percent of people skip their dental appointments because they have some level of fear about going to the dentist. We don’t want that to happen to you. So, at CarolinasDentist we employ everything that modern dentistry has to offer, including the best, most effective solutions for finding peace of mind in the dental chair. Sedation dentistry is just one of those options for easing your dental anxiety.

Procedures such as dental implants normally cause some discomfort. Anesthesia and patient sedation are commonly administered to help relieve any discomfort during the dental implant process. Most of our patients report that they are more comfortable after the procedure than they’d expected. Your dentist will prescribe medications to ease any discomfort that may occur after your procedure. Typically, a procedure will be performed under local anesthetic, unless another type of sedation is preferred. We will meet with you to discuss your options.

The benefits of sedation therapy include:

It starts working almost immediately, and you feel minimal to no pain throughout your procedure

It creates a period of amnesia, so you won't remember the procedure at all when you wake up

It allows you to cooperate for a period of time that allows your dentist and his team to expertly perform your procedure

Discover Our Positively Different Experience

Our mission at CarolinasDentist is to offer positively different family dentistry that’s based on creating meaningful relationships, constantly striving for greater heights, and improving our patients’ lives. Our purpose says it all: “Having Fun. Improving Lives. One Smile at a Time.” Our oral sedation therapy falls right into that, as we see it as a direct path from discomfort or displeasure in a patient’s smile to a joyful destination of having a stunning, white smile and healthy teeth and gums.

We Use the Most Advanced Technology

We use a suite of leading-edge dental tools and technologies at CarolinasDentist to provide the dentistry of tomorrow, today. Your best experience is our top priority, and our state-of-the-art technology allows us to enhance your comfort, keep you safe and in great health, and maximize your time with us. Your smile will say it all!

Rest assured that our family dentist sedation services will also employ the most advanced, leading-edge technology and resources available to our team. We want to make this the most comfortable experience possible for you. That’ll help guarantee that you’re fully on board to receive the care you need to regain your natural smile!

All that being said, let’s get into why gentle dentistry is so important to sedation dentistry.

Our Trusted Brand of Gentle Dentistry

It’s said that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This is truly the case when it comes to your oral health, especially when dental sedation dentistry comes into play. (Remember, even if you don’t have any pressing dental concerns, you should still visit our dental team for professional teeth cleaning and exam every six months so we can make sure everything is in tip-top shape. That way we can deal with problems—like cavities and gum disease—while they’re still small.)

It was probably during these CarolinasDentist visits that we discovered your oral health problem. (Typically, we evaluate your overall oral health; took X-rays to detect issues; remove stains, plaque, and tartar; polish your teeth; and provide an oral cancer screening. We use an ultrasonic scaler that sprays away debris from teeth, which is a big improvement upon the uncomfortable scraping of traditional tools. We are also happy to give you pointers for at-home oral care.)

Once an issue is discovered, we’ll meet to craft your best, personalized preventive oral health program, that includes oral sedation dentistry. We take these steps to save you time, stress and money by utilizing preventive care that keeps problems from occurring or stops them in their tracks altogether. Our variety of hygiene services will keep your teeth and gums healthy and limit your risk of future problems.

So, Join the CarolinasDentist Family Today

We make sure our family dentist offices are staffed with highly trained, caring dentists and hardworking team members. From the moment you walk through our doors, you’ll be greeted with a smile and given the first-rate CarolinasDentist experience.

    The receptionist was friendly and the waiting time was at a minimum. The dental assistant was professional and helpful. The surgeon explained everything that had to be done so I felt comfortable. The prices are high but I guess you get what you pay for.
