Sedation Dentistry

While many people tend to associate dental visits with nervousness or pain, we can take the fear out of dental visits for even the most anxious of patients using the modern advancements in dental sedation available at Bellefonte Family Dentistry. When you come to our office for an appointment, our trained doctors and staff can discuss your dental fears with you and recommend a sedation dentistry treatment that will allow you to receive the treatment you need without experiencing undue anxiety. In fact, due to the deep state of relaxation induced by dental sedation, we can even complete several visits' worth of dental treatment in only one visit and cut down on your time spent shuttling to and from our office.

Now you can actually enjoy—not dread!—your visit to the dentist. Sedation dentistry allows you to be deeply relaxed while your dental work is being done. You will still be conscious, but unaware of any unpleasant tastes, noises, and smells associated with dental work.

While you may not be fully unconscious, you will experience a deep state of relaxation and you will not have any significant anxiety, pain, or fear. You may even sleep through your treatment! During your appointment, you will be monitored at all times. Because it makes you drowsy, though, someone will need to drive you to and from your appointment. Once you are completely relaxed, we will take care of your dental needs. Depending on the amount of work being done, the sedative will wear off in two to six hours. Then your escort will drive you home so you can enjoy the rest of your day.
