Sedation by Sedation Dentist in Pittsburgh, PA

Sedation dentist Moon Township, PAYou know how important dentist visits are to maintaining a beautiful smile and improving your overall health. You may just feel too anxious about the prospect of visiting the dentist for your appointment.

Fear of going to the dentist is extremely common. In fact, most people who don’t regularly see the dentist list fear as the primary reason.

At Pittsburgh Dental Spa, our sedation dentist provides the gentle treatment, pain relief, and customer-oriented care you need to feel comfortable.

What Is Dental Sedation?

When you undergo an oral health procedure, your dentist may use a range of pain relieving substances. However, some patients find basic anesthesia ineffective or insufficient. To make up for this inadequacy, we may recommend intravenous, or IV, sedation.

Generally, we perform IV dental sedation for the following situations:

  • Complex or lengthy procedures
  • Patient has difficulty controlling muscle movement
  • Patient has intense gag reflex
  • Patient has severe anxiety
  • Patient has special needs

IV sedation, also known as general anesthesia, puts the patient to sleep. Not only will you feel no pain during the process, but you also won’t remember the procedure. However, you will need help getting home, as dental sedation can cause mild fuzziness for several hours after your appointment.

In addition to intravenous sedation, the Dental Spa offers two alternative pain relief solutions. Read about our other options on the premedication page and the nitrous oxide page. Before your treatment, discuss your medical history and concerns with our staff to determine which option is right for you.
