Sedation Dentistry

4

You can undergo any dental procedure comfortably at BLVD Dentistry & Orthodontics with your choice of sedation options.

At BLVD Dentistry & Orthodontics, several solutions are available to create a more relaxed, comfortable dental visit.

Local anesthesia is a type of anesthetic used to prevent pain in a specific area of your mouth during treatment by blocking the nerves that sense or transmit pain and, in turn, numbing mouth tissues. For some dental visits, your dentist may use a sedative, which can induce moderate sedation. Treatments that are more complex may require drugs that can induce deep sedation, reducing consciousness in order to relieve both pain and anxiety.

Dentists use the pain and anxiety control techniques mentioned above to treat millions of patients safely every year. Of course, taking any medication involves a certain amount of risk. That’s why our team will always discuss the risks and benefits involved in any treatment, so that you can make confident decisions about the treatment that is best for you.

Together, you and your dentist can choose the appropriate steps to make your dental treatment as safe and comfortable as possible.
