What is sedation dentistry?
For Dr. Derek Lowe and our dental team, helping all of our patients have a positive experience is one of our first priorities. We recognize that many of those who visit our dental office experience fear and anxiety when they visit the dentist, and are often held back from receiving the necessary treatments due to these unsettling feelings. We never want you to go without a beautiful, healthy smile and are pleased to offer sedation dentistry in Fairbanks, Alaska, to help you feel relaxed. Sedation dentistry is the field of dentistry that encompasses all of the methods and medications used to keep you free of pain and comfortable before, during, and after any dental treatment.
What is oral sedation?
Oral sedation is our favored method of sedation dentistry, although it is not the only form of sedation available. Oral sedation is a form of conscious sedation, which means you will remain awake throughout the treatment process. Taken in pill form, oral sedation can be ingested up to a day before the treatment or right before. Our dentist and team will work with you to help you feel confident in your medication and sedation. If you would like more information about all the forms of sedation and anesthesia we offer, please contact our dental office today. We would be happy to answer all of your questions. We always hope to foster a positive experience at Alaska Dental Arts.
