What is Sedation Dentistry?

Dr. Muse wants to ensure all of our patients are relaxed and comfortable when they visit us at our Lafayette dentist office. Your happiness is our top priority. That’s why we are proud to offer anxiety-free sedation dentistry, to help you get the dental care you need in a relaxed and comfortable setting. Who knows, you might even come back and see us again!

Sedation dentistry is a fantastic solution for patients who suffer from mild to moderate dental anxiety. With sedation dentistry at your Lafayette dentist, your hesitations, concerns, and fears will melt away, allowing you to sit back, relax, and feel good about getting the oral care you need. We offer sedation dentistry for all types of appointments, from checkups and cleanings to more extensive procedures.

How does sedation work?

Sedation can be administered in many forms and potencies, depending on your level of anxiety and the treatment needed. The medication comes in the form of a pill that you take about an hour prior to the appointment or can be administered by your Lafayette dentist at your appointment. You will need to arrange for transportation, as you are not to operate a motor vehicle the day of your appointment.

You will start to feel very relaxed and euphoric, and will sleep right through the procedure – you will be done before you can say “aah” and will have little to no recollection of your time in the chair. Many patients find sedation can actually eliminate their fears of the dentist and provide the most comfortable dental visit they never thought was possible.

Is Sedation Dentistry right for me?

While sedation dentistry is primarily helpful for patients who have some form of dental anxiety, there are a few other cases in which it can be beneficial. You might want to consider sedation dentistry if you:

  • Fear the dentist
  • Have a strong gag reflex
  • Have a sore or stiff jaw (TMJ)
  • Have trouble getting numb
  • Are embarrassed by your condition
