Enhance Your Dental Experience with Sedation Dentistry

If the thought of visiting the dentist sends shivers down your spine, you're not alone. Dental anxiety is a common issue that keeps many people from getting the oral care they need. But fear not, because at Sandefer Premier Dental in Denham Springs, LA, we have a solution that can help you relax and get the dental treatment you require - Sedation Dentistry.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is a technique that uses medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. It's a game-changer for those who struggle with dental phobias, anxiety, or even a strong gag reflex. Dr. Clint Sandefer and our experienced team at Sandefer Premier Dental are committed to making your dental visit as comfortable as possible, and sedation dentistry is one of the ways we achieve this goal.

The Different Levels of Sedation Dentistry

At Sandefer Premier Dental, we offer various levels of sedation to cater to your specific needs:

  • Minimal Sedation: You remain awake but relaxed.
  • Moderate Sedation: You may not remember much of the procedure but can still respond to verbal cues.
  • Deep Sedation: You are on the edge of consciousness but can still be awakened.
  • General Anesthesia: You are completely unconscious.

The level of sedation required depends on the procedure and your personal preferences. Dr. Clint Sandefer will discuss your options and help you choose the most suitable one for your situation.
