Modern dentistry can accomplish a lot in helping you maintain strong and healthy teeth. However, many people miss out on quality dental care due to dental anxiety and fear. Sedation dentistry can help you overcome dental anxiety and have stress-free dental visits. Through our sedation dentistry services in Spokane, Washington, Richard D. Weigand, DDS, and our team can make dental care a positive, productive experience.
Types of Dental Sedation
As no two people are exactly alike in their dental care needs, we offer various sedation dentistry options to make it easy for anyone to have anxiety-free treatments. These options include:
- Local anesthetic is a numbing agent often used for general procedures. Dr. Weigand uses a revolutionary vibration technique at our office to administer local anesthetic. This painless method uses vibration energy to keep pain stimulations from reaching the brain. Patients are amazed at how easy numbing can be.
- IV sedation for complex treatments like oral surgery. The medication takes effect quickly as it’s administered directly into your bloodstream. Some patients fall asleep during treatment. Afterward, you’ll have no memory of your procedure.
Purpose of Sedation Dentistry
Preventive dentistry is essential for good oral health. If dental phobia keeps you from the preventive dental services you need, you can benefit from sedation dentistry. You can look forward to calm, stress-free dental visits with sedation dentistry.
Our sedation techniques produce a relaxing, calming effect on our patients so they can view dental care as the positive experience it’s meant to be. By eliminating the fear of dental treatments, sedation dentistry makes it easier for you to get routine oral care to keep your teeth healthy and strong long-term and receive restorative treatments when needed. Coupled with anesthesia for invasive treatments, you can look forward to pain-free, anxiety-free dental services through sedation dentistry.
