Experience Dentistry Free From Stress And Anxiety

Experience a stress-free dental journey with the aid of anesthetic and sedation alternatives, meticulously crafted to eliminate discomfort during your procedure. These methods can be customized to your specific treatment plan and personal requirements, guided by your dentist’s expertise. Discover dentistry free from stress or anxiety by choosing the right sedation option for your needs.

The Benefits Of Dental Sedation

Sedation techniques fall into three main categories, each with its own advantages:

Local Anesthesia

At Redwood Dental, our local anesthesia process ensures patient comfort. After reviewing the medical history and explaining the procedure, the dentist applies a topical anesthetic and administers the local anesthetic near the treatment site. Patients may feel a slight pinch or pressure during the injection, but the area quickly becomes numb. Once the anesthetic takes effect, the procedure begins, with patients feeling only pressure or movement. Afterward, the effects wear off gradually, and patients may experience temporary numbness or tingling. Local anesthesia at Redwood Dental is a safe and effective way to manage pain, ensuring a comfortable experience for patients.

Conscious Sedation

At Redwood Dental, conscious sedation helps patients relax during procedures. After evaluating their medical history, we administer the sedative orally, through inhalation, or via IV injection. Throughout the procedure, we monitor vital signs and the patient’s consciousness. The sedative induces a relaxed state, allowing for a comfortable, anxiety-free experience. Recovery is monitored, with some patients experiencing temporary drowsiness. Conscious sedation at Redwood Dental ensures a safe, comfortable procedure for patients.

Frequently Asked Questions

Conscious sedation during a procedure allows you to remain awake and aware, free from discomfort, and without the stronger side effects and risks associated with general anesthesia. Some patients may experience short periods of sleep.

Conscious sedation combines medications to help you relax (a sedative) and block pain (an anesthetic) during a medical or dental procedure. You will likely remain awake but may not be able to speak.This form of sedation allows for quick recovery, enabling you to return to your daily activities soon after the procedure.

You should be able to return to your everyday activities the next day. Avoid driving, operating machinery, and making legal decisions for at least 24 hours.

Dr. Ameen and his team ensure the process is very safe, as patients remain awake, responsive, and retain their reflexes.

You won’t be able to feel any pain after having a local anaesthetic, although you may still feel some pressure or movement. It normally only takes a few minutes to lose feeling in the area where a local anaesthetic is given.

Local anesthetics are considered safe for our patients at Redwood Dental. Our dentists prioritize your safety throughout the procedure.
