Relax while we enhance your smile.
According to recent statistics, over 90 million Americans avoid getting necessary dental care because they are anxious or fearful. For far too many, it is more than being afraid. Some patients have had traumatic experiences in the dental chair; others come from painful pasts and still others are far too self-conscious about the condition of their teeth to talk, much less smile. We understand how fear may have kept you from good care. We are here to help you so you can have the confidence and opportunities that a beautiful smile brings to your life.
Sedation Dentistry... a reason to dream
At Stevenson Dental Care we offer Oral Conscious Sedation to help you manage your fear and anxiety during dental appointments. We can help you relax and enjoy even the most complex procedures, and you may have little, if any, memory of the sights, smells, or sounds of your visit. Oral conscious sedation is administered by taking a pill before your appointment. During the entire time you are here, we will closely monitor you to ensure your safety. We offer sedation at two levels to suit your needs:
- Lite Oral Sedation - This form of sedation is administered with a pill taken an hour before your appointment. You may feel more at ease thinking about your appointment, and more relaxed during your treatment. With oral sedation, the level of sedation varies from patient to patient.
- Moderate Oral Sedation – This form of sedation is administered with a pill before your appointment, and after you arrive for your appointment, you may be given additional medicine by mouth to help you become quite comfortable. Moderate Sedation is a deeper level of sedation than Lite Sedation, and you can be quite sleepy. It is conscious sedation, meaning you can still respond to a question, and your body functions remain normal. You may even fall asleep.
