Sedation dentistry is the practice of using sedatives to help a patient feel more comfortable and relaxed for their dental procedure. It can encompass a wide spectrum of alternatives for patients, from a light, oral medicine to a more controllable, IV-administered sedation medication.
At our Wood Creek Dental office in Greenville, we can offer various modes of sedation, but our focus is on IV sedation administered by an anesthesia professional. In this model of sedation, we have partnered with Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) to bring a comprehensive approach to the many considerations of providing sedation in our Greenville dental practice and to maintain the highest safety measures possible.
This partnership allows our dentists to fully concentrate on your dental needs and treatment, while a skilled anesthesia professional is dedicated solely to administering and managing the specific level of sedation needed for your optimal comfort and safety throughout the entire appointment.
Our recommendation for your sedation will depend on your level of anxiety, the length of your treatment, your medical history, and any restrictive guidelines governed by the American Dental Association (ADA).
