Going to the dentist strikes fear in many patients for a number of reasons. They may have had unpleasant or even traumatic experiences as a child, neglected their teeth for many years, or be completely embarrassed about the appearance of their smiles. Sedation dentistry, offered in our Little Rock, Arkansas, office, gives patients the chance to receive the dental work they need in as little as one visit – without panic or anxiety.
How Does Sedation Dentistry Work?
Smile Arkansas makes sedation dentistry very convenient and safe for our patients. About one hour before arriving at our practice, you will take a small pill, which will make you feel very drowsy by the time you are ready for your appointment. Once the effects of the pill set in completely, you will fall into a very deep state of relaxation. You will not be unconscious, but you will not be aware of what is going on around you. Members of our highly trained staff will carefully monitor you the entire time you are sedated, checking your vital signs and ensuring that you are comfortable.
