Sedation Dentistry - Albany, OR

Sedation Dentistry Albany, OR

Dental anxiety is sadly common in patients of all ages. This could be due to a bad personal experience, learned from relatives in childhood, or general anxiety. Whatever the cause, for some, dental anxiety is so severe that it keeps them from receiving the care they need. At Springhill Dental & Orthodontics, Dr. Aman Grewal is happy to offer sedation dentistry in Albany.  Dr. Grewal and her dental team use a number of sedation “sleep” dentistry techniques to help patients feel more relaxed and comfortable during dental treatments.

Our Albany Sedation Dentistry Options

Intravenous Conscious Sedation (IV) -Extreme anxiety can be quelled and a deeper level of sedation can be achieved with the use of IV sedation.  When sedative medications are delivered directly into the bloodstream, you will remain conscious and awake, although you will barely notice the dental work that is being performed during your visit.

IV Sedation can help people overcome their fears because it has such great benefits such as:

  • Medication begins working quickly because it is in IV form
  • Provides a deeper state of relaxation along with an amnesic effect.  Most people do not feel or remember much during their appointment.
  • Faster recovery time because the medication is controlled more evenly.
  • More procedures can be done in one dental visit, thus lessening time in the dental chair, and prevents multiple recoveries.

IV Sedation is generally recommended for wisdom teeth removal, or other reconstructive dental procedures.
