Relaxing Sedation Dentistry in Brownstown Charter Twp., MI

Anxiety can appear in many forms—shaking, speech impediments, difficulty breathing—and at any time. We understand the fears and concerns that are associated with dental treatments, especially as a stranger pokes around in your mouth for extended periods of time. Thankfully, with sedation dentistry, the professionals at Jaffe Dental Group can ease your anxiety and keep you relaxed for the duration of your appointment.

Sedation dentistry is typically associated with major dental procedures, such as tooth extractions and root canals, but that’s not all it’s used for. This calming medication can help relieve apprehension for those with a strong gag reflex, extremely sensitive teeth, fear of needles, and more. If you suffer from post-traumatic stress relating to dental care and wish to be sedated during your routine teeth cleaning or other general dental procedures, the professionals at Jaffe Dental Group can make that happen in a safe and effective manner.

Our Dental Sedation Options

There are various forms of sedation on the market, and at Jaffe Dental Group, we only administer the safest and most effective options for our patients. Whether you have extreme anxiety surrounding any type of doctoral procedure or require just a little bit of reassurance, our dentists will provide you with a dental sedation option that best suits your needs.

Nitrous Oxide

Also known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is recommended for patients with mild to moderate feelings of anxiety about dental treatments. We’ll administer the gas through a mask that fits over the nose and ask you to count back from ten. Within a few minutes, you’ll begin to fall into a deep state of relaxation.

Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry

For those who suffer from moderate to severe dental phobia and don’t like being put to sleep for any procedure, oral conscious sedation dentistry is for you. It’s as simple as taking an aspirin and won’t render you unconscious. Instead, you’ll enter a deep state of comfort that still allows you to remain aware of everything and respond to commands from our dental team.

Frequently Asked Questions

Commonly Asked Sedation Dentistry Questions

This will depend on the dental procedure you’re receiving and the type of sedation you choose. Before your appointment, we’ll discuss how long you’ll be sedated and how the process works in more detail.

Side effects from sedation dentistry are very minor. Upon waking up, you can expect to feel groggy and experience a dry mouth, but this will subside as the day progresses. It’s important to have a responsible adult drive you to and from your appointment if you’re receiving sedation dentistry, as you will not be able to operate heavy machinery for the remainder of the day. Additionally, you should avoid any form of alcohol since this can increase your risks of grogginess and amnesia-like symptoms.

The dentists at Jaffe Dental Group will cover all of this information and more before your appointment.

For the most part, yes, anyone can receive sedation dentistry, including children. We do recommend that those who are pregnant or suffer from obstructive sleep apnea talk to their doctor before undergoing sedation.
