Worry-Free Oral Health Care with Sedation Dentistry in Fairfield
It's important to see your dentist at least twice a year, even if your teeth and gums are in good condition. Sometimes, however, circumstances make it hard to get the dental treatments you need. If you suffer from dental anxiety, for example, and have been avoiding the dentist you’re missing out on essential oral health care, but there is a solution. We offer dental sedation in Fairfield to help you feel more relaxed and comfortable when you visit our office.
Dr. Frank Chen and his team offer oral conscious sedation, which is suitable to use for use during a range of dental procedures. If you suffer from dental anxiety, oral conscious sedation can help you get through your appointments, including routine exams and cleaning, as well as more complicated procedures.
What is Oral Conscious Sedation?
Oral conscious sedation is one of the most effective treatments for dental anxiety. If you opt for sedative therapy, you'll be prescribed a pill to take an hour before your scheduled appointment. By the time you're ready to sit down for your procedure, the pill will have taken effect and you will feel deeply relaxed and comfortable. The level of sedation provided by the pill is deep, almost like sleeping, but you will still be conscious and able to respond to our doctors' questions, if necessary.
Many people who undergo oral conscious sedation for a dental procedure don't remember their visit afterward. Not only do you feel relaxed during your dental visit, but you won’t have any memories of the sensations of sounds of treatment, which can typically trigger anxiety or make patients hesitant about scheduling another dental visit.
Before and After Sedation
The level of sedation you'll be under is deep enough that you won't be able to drive to or from your appointment, which means you'll need to arrange for someone to drive you to our office. Another important factor to consider is that the effects of the sedation can last up to six hours, so it's best to schedule your appointment for a time where you know you'll be able to spend the remainder of the day resting.
