Put Your Dental Fears at Ease with Sedation Dentistry

There are hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world that routinely avoid scheduling appointments with their dentist or periodontist due to dental anxiety or fear. Unfortunately, this often means they don’t get the dental care they need until their condition worsens. At Benchmark Periodontics, we strongly believe that every patient should have access to getting the care they need in a safe, comfortable environment. That is why we are happy to offer all of our patients sedation dentistry options that will allow them to take control of their oral health while feeling confident about their dental appointments and treatments.

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

With sedation dentistry, our patients often say that their appointments are more enjoyable, enabling them to have a better experience. If you choose to take advantage of sedation dentistry at your next appointment, you can enjoy the following benefits:

• Reduced levels of dental anxiety or fear
• Calm, relaxed state for a more enjoyable dental experience
• More complete dental care
• Complete more in one appointment

Our Sedation Dentistry Options

Local Anesthetic

Sedation Dentistry

Local anesthetic is a common form of sedation dentistry used for many different treatments. A numbing medication is injected directly into the gum or cheek of the treatment site to numb the nerve and prevent the pain signals from reaching the brain. The numbing effect typically lasts for hours following the completion of treatment, but it allows patients to overcome dental anxiety by providing them with a pain-free procedure.

Oral Sedation

Sedation Dentistry

Oral sedation is a safe and effective form of sedation dentistry. With this option, you will take an oral medication in the office to allow you to enter into a relaxed, euphoric state. For your safety, we ask that someone bring you to and from your appointment with this sedation.

IV Sedation

Sedation Dentistry

Intravenous (IV) sedation is an effective sedation dentistry solution for patients that experience extreme dental anxiety or fear, or those that need to undergo more complex treatment plans. When IV sedation is needed, a certified anesthesiologist will come to our office to administer the sedation and ensure your safety throughout the treatment.

Enjoy a pain-free experience while getting the periodontal care you need!
