Sedation dentistry has worked very safely and perfectly for many patients who used to be apprehensive about going to the dentist. At Cornerstone Dental Arts, you will never be judged or scolded for feeling nervous or afraid, and we are happy to offer a free consultation so that we can discuss the options available and help you or your loved one be on the road to sustained dental health.
At Cornerstone Dental Arts, we are able to perform IV (intravenous) sedation right in the comfort of our Knoxville office. It is a safe, effective, and comfortable way to overcome the most intense dental anxiety and allow you to get the excellent dental care you deserve and need. It can provide almost instantaneous relief from anxiety, and it can enable us to perform a significant number of procedures in a single visit.
IV sedation allows us unprecedented control over relaxation levels, so we can tailor the sedation to your specific needs. Depending on the amount of sedative you receive, you will feel extremely relaxed, drowsy, and you may even fall asleep. Typically, patients can respond to questions and remain conscious, but they do not experience extreme nervousness or discomfort, remembering little about the appointment. Afterward, you must have a responsible adult who can drive you to and from your appointment and spend some time with you until the sedation has worn off completely.
If fear of pain has kept you from visiting the dentist for years, don’t worry, we can help! Sedation dentistry allows even the most nervous patients to have a tranquil dental experience, and you’ll be amazed at what it can do for you. If you’d like to discuss how sedation could help you simply glide through your next appointment, please contact our office today.
