Sedation Options in West Allis

Many people avoid going to the dentist because they experienced traumatic care as a child, suffered painful procedures as an adult, or are influenced by the stereotypes they see on TV and movies.  Even when they experience warning signs like pain in the mouth, many people avoid seeking treatment because of the fear they experience.  At our office we understand these feelings and want to help.  Whether you just need a routine cleaning or a brand-new smile, we offer sedation dentistry to make your experience comfortable and relaxing. 

Sedation Dentistry is a Path Free from Fear!

Sedation dentistry is used by many dentists to provide a relaxing, calming experience for patients who are afraid of going to the dentist and/or having dental procedures performed. There are many forms of sedation that can be administered in a variety of ways offering us the flexibility of three levels of sedation – minimal, moderate, and deep – depending on the level of anxiety the patient experiences. 

Oral Sedation

Our office offers oral sedation dentistry.  Oral sedation dentistry allows us to relieve anxiety without the use of needles or intravenous tubes.  Additionally, patients who traditionally have trouble getting numb have no problem when sedated and relaxed.

About an hour prior to the appointment, the patient will be asked to take a small pill that will make he/she drowsy.  By the time a companion accompanies the patient to our office for the appointment, the patient will be feeling relaxed and calm.  We will escort him/her to a comfortable room and cover him/her with a warm, thick blanket.

Once the patient is comfortable and completely relaxed, the doctor and experienced clinical team will complete the dental procedure.  During the entire procedure, the patient’s vital signs will be monitored to ensure their health and safety.  After the treatment is completed, the companion will take the patient home to rest and sleep for a couple of hours after the appointment.

Local Anesthetic

For certain dental procedures, your dentist will need to numb parts of your mouth.  In order to do so, medicine is injected into your gum or inner cheek.  This medicine is called a local anesthetic.

Lidocaine is the most common local anesthetic used in dentistry, however, there are many others.  All types of numbing drugs are combined with other medications to make the numbing last longer.  Numbing usually lasts several hours but wears off over time.

Numbing just the area where dentistry needs to be performed allows the dentist to perform procedures without pain or discomfort.  Because you are still conscious, you can answer prompts and commands quickly and easily.  And, because you have not been sedated, you can usually drive yourself home or go back to work immediately after the appointment.
