Dental Anxiety? Choose Conscious Sedation or IV Sedation

Sedation.jpgDoes going to the dentist cause you extreme anxiety? If so, then IV Sedation Dentistry may be the solution to your fears. At Clearwater Family & Sedation Dentistry, we are dedicated to patient comfort and will do all we can, including providing conscious sedation, to ensure your visit is a pleasant one.

What Is IV Sedation Dentistry?

When you choose our sedation dentistry option, we will deliver sedation drugs via an IV. Throughout your procedure, you will be asleep, in a state of deep relaxation. While you sit back and relax, we will perform the dental work you need.  You will be completely unaware of the procedure being performed.  Our Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist is there to meet all of your sedation needs and keep you comfortable throughout your stay with us.

Who Should Consider Sedation?

IV sedation dentistry is the ideal choice for those who are fearful of the dentist or who have sensitive teeth. It allows you to receive the crucial dental care you need to maintain a healthy, clean mouth, without anxiety or undue stress. If the thought of going to the dentist causes you anxiety, call Clearwater Family & Sedation Dentistry to discus conscious and IV sedation dentistry options.

We are a full service dental office that has all a comprehensive list of procedures and treatments, and we offer quick appointment availability. If you want a dental team that uses the latest technology to keep you comfortable throughout your visit, give us a call to schedule your appointment.

FAQs

What is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry refers to the use of medications to calm and relax a patient before and during a dental appointment.  

What type of sedation do you use?
At Clearwater Family & Sedation Dentistry, we employ a Certified Nurse Anesthetist that can administer IV sedation, putting you asleep in order to achieve complete relaxation.
We also offer conscious sedation, which is prescription medication that you would have filled at your pharmacist.  These medications offer a sedative effect and they also offer an amnesic effect allowing for our patients to remember little or no amount of their visit.  With either type of sedation, it is required to have a driver.  

Is sedation dentistry safe?
It is both safe and effective when administered by a trained professional.  With every patient, we discuss all the risks versus the benefits of sedation for you as an individual. 

 

"They are the BEST! I love coming here!"

"About 1 1/2 years ago, I was referred by a truck driver to see Dr. Battikhi. It was the best thing I ever did. My teeth were really bad and Dr. Battikhi suggested implants for my bottom teeth. Dr. Battikhi and his staff are wonderful, fun, kind and caring people. They are the BEST! I love coming here! Thank you all for everything you have done for me!"   ~ Gloria G.
