Experience dentistry free from stress and anxiety
Anesthetic and sedation options are available to prevent you from feeling pain and discomfort during your dental procedure. There are a few methods available and they may be combined to give you complete coverage. The type of sedation or pain relief used will depend on your personalized treatment plan, your personal needs and the expert opinion of your dentist or specialist.
Types of Sedation
At Bright Edge Dentistry we offer two forms of pain management. We can temporarily numb the small area receiving the work or you may be sedated so you are still awake but completely relaxed. Here’s some more information about each group:
Everyone is familiar with this reliable standard. We patiently numb the area and then carefully inject a local anesthetic to put a small area of your mouth to sleep. You may feel pressure but will not feel pain.
Using prescription medication or laughing gas, with light to moderate sedation you will be completely conscious but totally relaxed. This method of sedation is often used along with local freezing.
The benefits of dental sedation
Sedation and pain management are useful options that help us serve patients from all walks of life with many different challenges to overcome. Some of the benefits of sedation dentistry are as follows:
Overcoming Dental Anxiety
Sometimes the fear and worry can feel worse than the treatment itself. Dental anxiety shouldn’t stand between you and the dental treatment you need. If you have mild or extreme dental anxiety or fear is keeping you from seeking dental treatment, please speak up! We can help.
Make Time Fly By
For long procedures that leave you sitting in the chair with your mouth wide open for a long time, sedation will keep you relaxed and comfortable. Your procedure will be over before you know it.
Tailored for Your Personal Needs
Do you have a sensitive gag reflex? Chronic restlessness or restless leg syndrome? Does local freezing just not work for you? Sedation is really helpful in many different cases, ensuring that treatment is available to everyone.
