While trips to the dentist are routine for most individuals, for many, visiting a dentist's office can be a stress-inducing endeavor. The anxiety that accompanies it can lead to some not seeking the essential dental care they need. At Community Roots Family Dentistry, we offer intravenous (IV) and oral sedation dentistry for the comfort of our patients in Brecksville, OH. Our gentle practices, combined with our comfortable office and advanced sedation dentistry techniques, allow all patients to enjoy a calm and anxiety-free experience when visiting us for dental services.
Sedation dentistry is the practice of using a lighter form of the anesthesia hospitals use when performing surgery on patients. However, unlike hospitals where strong anesthesia requires breathing assistance for the patient and closely monitoring other bodily functions, the various forms of mild anesthesia we use to allow individuals to continue breathing on their own. Our sedation methods place patients in a deep, sleep-like state of relaxation so we can provide the care our patients require while they experience no pain or fear. Some patients may be so relaxed that they have no recollection of the dental procedure once it’s complete.
Deciding whether or not you need sedation dentistry for a procedure will be a discussion between each patient and our friendly team. Mild, moderate, or strong sedation can be provided for everything from routine cleanings and preventive care to dental implants and cosmetic dentistry. For patients who have a fear of general dentistry procedures, we want to make even the simplest treatment as comfortable as possible for you. For other patients who typically do not require anesthesia, we might suggest anesthesia when undergoing a complex or lengthy dental procedure. Sometimes, sedation allows us to complete procedures easier and with few appointments by using sedation. At Community Roots Family Dentistry, we want to ensure that all patients are comfortable with the decisions and level of care by our experienced team. We will work to meet every patient's preferences as best as we can.
Patient safety is our top priority at Community Roots Family Dentistry. We follow all guidelines set forth by the American Dental Association regarding the use of sedation and general anesthesia by dentists. Our staff is appropriately trained and educated on proper administration and safety standards, and all anesthesia will be administered to patients by a qualified dentist. You can look forward to a relaxing and comfortable experience while receiving painless treatment at our center for cosmetic and sedation dentistry.
