Sedation dentistry is an aspect of dental care that Dr. Gordon can use to help relax and calm patients of all ages. Your dental anxieties are likely to disappear at Gordon Dental of Leawood with our second-to-none service. We encourage you to call our team if you feel you may need sedation dentistry in Leawood, Kansas. We look forward to your visit with our dentist. Sedation dentistry is a wonderful choice for patients who feel anxious or nervous about their dental treatment. Sedation dentistry involves using a sedative medication to help you feel more relaxed and calm during your visit.
Administered as a pill several hours before your surgery, this sedation will relax you and put you in a sleepy state. After surgery the effects will linger, so patients will need someone to drive them home.
Sedation dentistry will help you feel more comfortable during your treatment. Our experienced dentist and dental team will ensure that your entire treatment is safe. Each member of our team is highly trained, and we will carefully monitor you during your visit. If you have chosen oral or IV sedation, please be sure to have a friend or family member available to drive you to and from your appointment.
If you suffer from dental anxiety, if you have had negative experiences at the dentist in the past, or if you simply feel nervous about your treatment, sedation dentistry can help you feel more at ease. Sedation dentistry is also a good choice for patients who have difficulty getting numb or who have an extremely sensitive gag reflex.
