Most people suffer from some degree of dental anxiety. At Legacy Dental, we offer sedation dentistry services to calm your nerves and make your visit as comfortable as possible.
If going to the dentist makes you sweat more than July in Albuquerque, you may want to consider sedation dentistry. Nerves are an understandable side effect, but you shouldn’t risk your oral health by avoiding the dentist for too long. Sedation dentistry professionals at Legacy Dental can help you be comfortable during your next cleaning or procedure.(505) 257-0354
Sedation Dentists in Northeast Albuquerque
Our dentists, Dr. Stewart Anderson and Dr. Derek Lines, are qualified to offer sedation dentistry to our patients. They use the latest medication and safest dental sedatives to help you feel comfortable. We are one of the few dental clinics in Northeast Albuquerque to carry multiple forms of dental sedation to give you the best, most pain-free experience.
What Is Sedation Dentistry?
Dental sedation is usually safe for adults and children. These drugs lower your anxiety for any procedure by calming your nerves, rather than causing you to fall asleep the way general anesthesia does. Our sedation dentist has several drugs available to help you rest easy and recover with a healthy smile.
Similar to muscle relaxers such as Valium, oral sedatives need an hour to kick in. Before your visit, simply swallow the prescribed medication. By the time you arrive at Legacy Dental, you’ll feel drowsy and ready for the dentist’s chair. Because of these sleepy side effects, be sure to have someone drive you to and from your dentist visit.
This sedative is applied through a mask. The gas helps patients feel relaxed and numbs pain. In fact, some patients may feel so relaxed that they fall asleep.
Although each method is different, each type of sedation comes with side effects. The drowsiness and relaxation from these dental sedatives can make operating vehicles or performing other tasks dangerous. Always bring someone to drive you home safely after visiting the sedation dentist. Consult your dentist before returning to work or performing other responsibilities to ensure your comfort and safe arrival home.
