Are you nervous about going to the dentist? You don’t need to be nervous about coming to Allen Dental. We offer several types of sedation to relax our patients.
Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry
Are extremely anxious about visiting the dentist? We can administer an oral sedative to relax you before performing any restorative dental procedure. Safe and effective, Oral Sedation allows you to remain awake and aware, but your anxiety will be reduced for any dental procedure.
I.V. Sedation Dentistry
IV Sedation, the deepest form of sedation, is also known as I.V conscious sedation or “twilight sleep”. Dr. Allen and his team are specialty trained to offer this type of sedation. It is particularly good for patients with strong gag reflexes, high dental anxiety or for those patients requiring multi-visit procedures that can be done in the same visit such as multiple crowns or root canals. IV Sedation is also used in most oral surgery procedures and requires more planning on the patient and doctor’s part. The patient will be groggy after the procedure and as such,will need a friend or family member to drive them home as well as monitor them for the next few hours.
