Do you experience high levels of anxiety when visiting the dentist? You may be a candidate for Sedation Dentistry.
A Deeper Sleep
Oral Sedation creates a deeper level of sedation than with laughing gas. Dr. Stuckert will prescribe a medication for you to take before your appointment to reduce anxiety. A wide variety of medications are available for this type of sedation, and Dr. Stuckert will carefully discuss your individual needs to determine which choice works best for you. All these medications are classified as anti-anxiety medications and achieve the same result: reducing and even eliminating the anxiety of dental treatment.
In addition to making your experience more comfortable, oral sedative medications help reduce your memory of the experience. It allows us to complete your treatment in less time and with fewer appointments. While your treatment is performed, Dr. Stuckert will carefully monitor your vital signs to ensure that your experience is as safe as possible. Because the effects of oral sedation last longer than most required appointment times, you will need someone to bring you to your appointment and drive you home after.
