Patients may develop anxiety or even outright fear regarding the dentist’s office for a number of reasons. Maybe you had a frightening experience at a younger age, or maybe you’re simply uncomfortable with the sights and sounds associated with the space. At Premier Dental Care, we do everything we can to ensure that our patients feel truly comfortable. Sedation dentistry is available upon request to help you reach a genuinely relaxed state throughout treatment here in Oak Hill, VA.
How Does Sedation Dentistry Work?
Dr. Bakhtyari will prescribe an oral medication, which you will be directed to take at a certain time before your appointment is set to begin. Please arrange for an escort to bring you to and from our office, as it will be unsafe for you to drive or travel alone. Once the effects begin, patients should feel very calm. Although you will remain technically awake throughout your procedure, it’s likely that you won’t remember anything about what you experienced later on. After resting for the remainder of the day, you should feel completely back to normal.
