Making Your Visit

Whether you have a particularly long procedure scheduled or are simply anxious about dental care in general, you can talk to our team at Healthy Smiles Dental Care of Barton City about sedation dentistry. Sedation helps even the most fearful patients stay calm, and in many cases, it can relax you to the point where you don’t even remember much – if any – of the procedure itself! When you call our dental office, be sure to mention if you think any member of your family could benefit from sedation dentistry in Barton City, MI.

Why Choose Healthy Smiles Dental Care of Barton City for Sedation Dentistry?

Oral Conscious Dental Sedation

Oral conscious sedation, as the name suggests, does not put you to sleep. That said, you will feel sleepy enough to doze off. However, we can easily wake you up, and you’ll be capable of answering our questions. For this type of sedation, you will be given a pill and told to ingest it either the night before or several hours before your appointment. You will need someone you trust to drive you to our dental office. (They’ll need to drive you back home as well, since it can take several hours for the sedative to completely wear off.)

IV Dental Sedation

In the most severe cases of dental phobia, you may want to consider IV sedation. The medication will be delivered into a vein on your hand, meaning it will take effect very quickly. Time seems to pass by very quickly during IV sedation, and you’ll find that it’s difficult to pay much attention to anything that’s going on around you. Unlike oral conscious sedation, we can adjust IV sedation levels as needed during the treatment depending on your comfort levels. Be sure to arrange to have someone else to take you home afterwards.
