What is sedation dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is the umbrella term that encompasses a number of relaxation techniques. At Daniel Sluyk, DDS, we offer amenities like noise-canceling headphones and television to help patients relax, but we also offer actual medical sedation. While relaxation techniques go a long way for patients who are feeling a bit apprehensive about their upcoming treatment, they aren’t enough for someone who is suffering from dental anxiety. This is where medical sedation comes in. It allows patients to relax enough to get the care they need to stay healthy.

Why do people need sedation dentistry?

Dental anxiety is very real. In fact, people with severe cases can qualify as having dental phobia, or odontophobia, a phobia that is recognized by medical professionals. Not only is this experience emotionally taxing and sometimes traumatizing, it leads to putting off necessary dental treatment, which can have a cascade of unfortunate side effects and ultimately lead to more comprehensive and sometimes invasive dental treatment.

Whether you’re feeling a little bit anxious or downright terrified, Dr. Sluyk and his team have the compassion, empathy, and sedation tools to meet you where you are and help keep you healthy.

What types of sedation dentistry are available?

We want to make sure that every patient has the opportunity to get the dental care they need. This means that we offer various levels of sedation, including:

  • Nitrous oxide
  • Anti-anxiety medication
  • Full sedation with an anesthesiologist

During your consultation, Dr. Sluyk will talk with you about your concerns, dental history, and your history with anesthesia in order to design the best sedation plan for you.

When is sedation for dental procedures appropriate?

There are some procedures, like removing wisdom teeth, that always happen while you’re sedated. However, if you suffer from severe dental anxiety or phobia, we can sedate you for any treatment you need. Our goal is to provide the care you need with the compassion and empathy you deserve. Dr. Sluyk will meet with you to discuss your concerns and your dental anxiety in order to chart out an action plan that keeps your mouth healthy and keeps you feeling safe.

You should feel safe at the dentist

Dr. Sluyk and his team work tirelessly to make sure that you feel safe while you’re in the office. For many, this means knowing that they will be sedated and comfortable during their procedures. It’s time that the way you experience dentistry changes, and that’s exactly what we’re offering at Daniel Sluyk, DDS. If you’re ready to get the dental care you need in a way that makes you feel safe and comfortable, Call or text the office today at (480) 367-0300 to schedule your consultation.
