Sedation Dentist Wilmington, NC

Sedation Dentist Wilmington NCFearful patients no longer have to be afraid of the dentist. Wilmington area patients can come in to see a dentist in our office to get the treatment they need. Sedation dentistry enables the dental procedures you need to be done easily and painlessly, while you are totally relaxed and comfortable.

Oral sedation has many benefits that make getting your general or cosmetic dentistry possible. Being sedated using oral medications means there are no needles. While you do not actually sleep during treatment, you will be sleepy--sedated just enough to make you totally relaxed and at ease.

One of the best parts is that by the next day, most people remember little to nothing of the time they spent in the dental chair. Gone are the memories of the sights, sounds, and smells of the office that are often so traumatizing.

Who can benefit from oral sedation dentistry?

People who have:

  • high fear and anxiety about seeing a dentist
  • a history of traumatic dental experiences
  • difficulty getting numb
  • very sensitive teeth
  • a need to have more dentistry completed in fewer visits
  • a bad gag reflex

And people who:

  • hate needles (oral sedation uses pills, not an IV needle)
  • don't do well with the sights, sounds, and smells associated with dental treatment
  • are embarrassed about the amount of dental work that may be required

Common questions

Q. Will I be unconscious? A. No, but you will be completely relaxed and comfortable.

Q. Will I be monitored? A. Yes, at all times. Your vital signs will be taken throughout the appointment and you will be monitored closely. One of our team will always be with you and our Wilmington dentist will be there most of the time.

Q. Will someone need to accompany me to my appointment? A. Yes, you will need a companion to drive you to and from your appointment.

Q. How long will I remain sedated after my appointment? A. Each person's recovery time is different based on the medications and dosages that are used. You should plan on relaxing and taking it easy for the remainder of the day after your appointment and have your companion stay with you until you are fully recovered.
