If you struggle with dental fear or anxiety and it has held you back from receiving the treatment you need, contact Dr. Emma Wu and Associates about our sedation dentistry options. We feature intravenous (IV) dental anesthesia for our patients who are undergoing more complex procedures, or those who have serious dental anxiety. Sedation dentistry is a valuable tool in helping patients feel relaxed and comfortable while receiving dental treatments. Dental anesthesia must be administered by a highly skilled and trained professional. Our dental team has the experience you been searching for in sedation dentistry.
This form of dental anesthesia is administered through an IV for the purpose of reducing anxiety and inducing a state of relaxation. Patients often feel as if they are in a dream state, but often remain awake. It is not unusual for some patients to fall asleep while under dental anesthesia. This type of sedation dentistry is often necessary when patients are undergoing more complex procedures, such as dental implants or wisdom teeth removal. Our dentist understands that some patients have a high level of fear or anxiety, and procedures can be overwhelming or uncomfortable, which is why we offer IV sedation dentistry as a convenient solution for many patients.
Don’t let fear hold you back from receiving treatment! Our sedation dentistry options can make your visits comfortable and pain-free. Learn more about IV sedation by scheduling an appointment with Dr. Emma Wu today. If you have been searching for sedation anesthesia near you, contact us right away.
Used for the most complex, invasive dental procedures such as full mouth dental implant placement, general anesthesia is a heavier form of sedation that will leave the patient unconscious. Only specially trained practitioners like the ones we have on staff here at Dr. Emma Wu and Associates can provide this level of anesthesia.
Nitrous oxide (commonly known as “laughing gas”) is inhaled through a mask prior to your treatment. Patients are alert and relaxed throughout the procedure, and the effects wear off quickly. This option allows patients to drive home after versus other forms of sedation dentistry like general anesthesia.
