Keeping Patients Calm Since 2004

sleep dentistry Farmington

Are you or a family member apprehensive about going to the dentist? Has a past experience with pain or discomfort caused you to start panicking when you think about having your teeth worked on? Have you neglected going to the dentist and fear the amount of work that might need to be executed?

If your past or current situation is causing a lot of nervousness, there are options available to alleviate your fear and reduce (or completely eliminate) your pain with the needed procedures. Oral sedation (sometimes called sleep dentistry) has helped countless dental patients calmly undergo dental treatment. It is not an experimental procedure but has been used safely in various forms since the 1800s.

To discuss sleep dentistry, call Sundance Dental & Orthodontics at 505-985-5626 to schedule a no-pressure consultation. We will explain your sedation options and answer any questions. If you pick sedation, we will refer you to a specialist if needed (depending on the type of sedation used).

It is vital to understand the difference between topical analgesics and sedation which are used both alone and simultaneously. Analgesics help numb the gums and nerves connected with your teeth so you don’t feel the pain. Sedation medications influence the nervous system and bring a feeling of peace and relaxation. You may choose to be minimally sedated, where you are relaxed but still awake, or choose general anesthesia which renders you completely unconscious. Together, these two solutions dramatically improve the treatment experience for patients suffering from dental anxiety, a very common condition.

Regardless of the type and level of sedation you decide to use, we will proceed with patience and understanding. Oral sedation helps with making your dental visit comfortable so you can treat all of your dental problems and restore your health. Taking care of cavities, infections, and other urgent problems brings peace of mind and reduces the risk of further damage including tooth loss.

Sundance Dental & Orthodontics is committed to oral health and complete patient satisfaction from the first visit through completion of treatment. We offer quality dental care including dental implants, orthodontics and IV sedation dentistry.
