Thanks to sedation dentistry thousands now enjoy visits to Ballantyne Center for Dentistry even though they once feared going to the dentist.
Imagine achieving your dream smile COMFORTABLY. It happens every day at Ballantyne Center for Dentistry. Imagine enjoying going to the dentist…
Not only do we use the latest techniques, materials, and technology at Ballantyne Center for Dentistry, we use sedation dentistry.
With sedation dentistry, you arrive at our spa-like practice. We give you a few small pills to take and an hour later you are in a state of complete relaxation. Some of our patients get so relaxed that they doze into a sleep like state. We complete the procedure. You wake up. You go home to rest. It’s that simple; you barely feel anything during the procedure.
Both Dr. Christian Yaste and Dr. Joseph Hufanda are certified in oral sedation by DOCS (Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation). This proven technique means that you remain calm and comfortable through an entire dental visit.
Sedation dentistry involves taking an oral sedative or small pill before coming to our Charlotte, North Carolina practice. You should have a companion drive you to and from your dental appointment. The oral sedation will put you in a dream-like state, where you are unable to feel anxiety or pain, and you will emerge from your visit with little or no memory of your actual treatment.
This form of sedation dentistry does not require breathing apparatus. General anesthesia has significant risks while conscious sedation dentistry provided by trained professionals is safer.
Who is a candidate for sedation dentistry?
Sedation is right for anyone who wants the dental care they need without the pain or fear they’ve come to expect. It is particularly useful if you:
- Have fears that make you delay or avoid proper dental care
- Have had a bad experience with dentists in the past
- Have a strong gag reflex
- Suffer acute or chronic jaw soreness
- Dislike the sights, sounds and smells associated with a dental office
- Have trouble getting numb
- Need a lot of work done, but don't have time for several appointments
- Are embarrassed about the condition of your teeth and want to take action
- Have sensitive teeth
- Hate the sight of needles
- Physical limitations such as back or neck problem
Sedation dentistry has several advantages. First, it helps us meet the goal of providing each of our patients with a comfortable dental experience. We believe that receiving the dental care you need should not invoke fear, anxiety, or stress, and sedation dentistry lets us accomplish this for even the most fearful patient.
Secondly, sedation dentistry is an excellent way to receive all your necessary dental work in just one visit. In many cases, dental work that would normally take three or four visits can be condensed into one, letting patients emerge with a beautiful smile and no memory of their treatment.
Sedation dentistry makes it easy to receive dental implants, crowns, dental veneers, or any other treatment! To learn more about the sedation dentistry options available at our practice in Charlotte, North Carolina, contact our cosmetic dentistry practice today.
