Sedation Dentistry Bethlehem Township
If you're feeling anxious or nervous about your dental procedure, Charles G. Wolfe D.D.S. offers several modes of sedation that can help calm your nerves while you are in the dentist’s chair.
Depending on the type of treatment / procedure you require, sedation options include:
General Anesthesia | Bethlehem
For patients who are susceptible to becoming extremely nervous or who require a lengthy procedure, general anesthesia is the ideal choice. This will put you in a deep and comfortable sleep, allowing the dentist to perform your procedure without causing you discomfort. This mode of sedation also enables the dentist to work without interruptions, caused by nervous twitching.
Oral conscious sedation | Bethlehem
Oral conscious sedation allows you to stay fully conscious during your procedure. Before your appointment you will need to take an oral sedative that will ensure you are completely relaxed by the time you arrive. The dentist may also add nitrous oxide to increase the calming effects.
IV Conscious Sedation | Bethlehem
This sedation method is administered through an IV. Thus the calming effects can be felt quickly, ensuring you will be completely comfortable throughout the procedure.
Nitrous oxide | Bethlehem
Nitrous oxide is administered through a facemask. It is high effective, while it minimizes pain and discomfort felt during your procedure.
Charles G. Wolfe D.D.S. will perform a comprehensive exam of your oral health to determine which sedation method is best for your needs. Contact us today for more information.
