Fox View Dental

How does sedation dentistry work?

Sedation dentistry has helped improve the oral health of millions of people by allowing them to de-stress and get the dental care they need. If you find yourself postponing dental appointments or skipping them altogether, sedation dentistry at our De Pere dental clinic allows you to get the care you need to maintain your oral health.

Whether your dental anxiety is triggered by the sounds and smells of a dental office, injections, the sensations, or a strong gag reflex, sedation dentistry in Green Bay can help you.

When you call to arrange your appointment, let us know that you would like to try sedation dentistry. Dr. Yenchesky will prescribe an oral sedative for you to take about an hour before your procedure. The benefit is that when you arrive at Fox View Dental, you will already feel pleasantly relaxed, drowsy, and ready for your appointment.

Oral sedation won’t knock you out. You will remain fully conscious and aware, but you’ll feel very comfortable, and some of our patients get so relaxed that they even drift off to sleep.

Since the sedative remains in your system for several hours, you will need a friend or family member to drive you safely to and from your appointment. We recommend you go home and take it easy for the rest of the day while the effects wear off.

Sedation dentistry at our Green Bay dental office is a huge benefit for patients who wouldn’t otherwise be able to get the oral health care they need. If you think that a sedative would benefit you at your next appointment, please let us know. Your comfort is our priority!
