Feeling nervous or scared about going to the dentist? Sedation dentistry may be the answer. There are different levels of sedation including: Inhaled Nitrous Oxide, Oral Conscious Sedation (pill), IV Sedation, and General Anesthesia. Depending on one’s level of anxiety and the type of procedure being performed, would help determine what level of sedation would be best suited.
Cedarwood West Dentistry offers all levels of sedation. With proper preparation and thorough medical history, IV Conscious Sedation is extremely safe and effective for the highly anxious/scared patient. It typically provides a level of amnesia so you may not remember the procedure at all. For procedures such as Impacted Third Molar extractions, Implants, or extensive dental treatment, IV Sedation is an excellent method of care. If general anesthesia is the method of choice, a Dentist Anesthesiologist can be arranged in our office and work together with Dr Seheult.
Dr. Seheult has over 10 years experience working with Sedation Dentistry. If you would like more information about sedation dentistry, please call our office at (406) 892-4348.
