There are many people who are not big fans of the dentist, and we completely understand. Whether you had a really bad experience or a long and troublesome procedure, it can leave a lasting effect. However, our team at Barker Dentistry & Implant Center wants to change that perception. We want you to feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible, which is why we offer sedation options.
For oral surgeries, complex procedures, and simply for those with high anxiety at the dentist's office, we provide sedatives to help calm your nerves while preventing pain. They are available in different forms, and the dentist will go over your options before the day of the procedure.
No matter which option we choose, you will still be awake during the procedure but fully relaxed. You might not even remember it happened!
For this method, we will place a mask over your face, which will administer a combination of a sedative and oxygen. As soon as you breathe in, you will start feeling the effects.
We will administer the sedative directly into your bloodstream if we opt for IV sedation. This method is typically referred to as “twilight” sedation.
Before you come in for your appointment, we will prescribe a sedative in the form of a pill. You will typically take it either the night before or the morning of the procedure, depending on the dentist’s instructions.
If you want to experience a dental procedure without all the stress, the team at Barker Dentistry & Implant Center is here for you. With our sedation options, you can expect an easy and comfortable dental treatment. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
