Calm Your Nerves with Sleep Dentistry in Mesa:

Anxiety Feeling anxious about visiting the dentist? Sleep dentistry, also known as conscious sedation or sedation dentistry, can help calm your nerves and ease your fear effectively.

This procedure is straightforward, safe, and can be administered right in the office. It typically involves taking a pill, inducing a relaxed, dream-like state similar to sleep. Sleep dentistry is an excellent option for alleviating your anxiety.

Our dentists understand that building trust is crucial for successful sleep dentistry. All three dentists at Valencia DC are members of the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation. Moreover, we hold licenses and certifications with the State of Arizona. We genuinely value the opportunity to assist fearful patients and support them in overcoming their fears.

Sleep Dentistry Procedure:

Our dentist will prescribe triazolam, a safe form of oral sedation, for your comfort. You’ll be instructed to take the medication before your appointment, inducing drowsiness. You’ll likely experience temporary amnesia, not recalling the procedure.

The effects typically last two to four hours and are highly effective for anxious dental patients. You’ll need a driver to take you to and from your appointment as you won’t be able to drive until the effects wear off.

For a milder form of sedation, consider nitrous oxide gas. Administered through a mask over your nose, it induces a calm feeling and enhances the local anesthetic’s effectiveness, ensuring a comfortable experience. After the procedure, you can safely drive home from your dental appointment.

Benefits of Sleep Dentistry

After consulting with one of our experienced dentists and determining that sleep dentistry is suitable for you, here are some benefits to look forward to:
  • Little memory of the dental procedure: With a trusting relationship with your dentist, you can relax and drift off to sleep, resulting in minimal memory of the procedure.
  • Enhanced numbing effect: Oral sedation can help intensify the effects of anesthetics, ensuring numbness throughout the procedure.
  • Complex procedures in one appointment: With sleep dentistry, you can undergo multiple dental procedures in a single session, as you’ll be pain-free and relaxed.
  • Painless invasive treatments: Sleep dentistry makes it possible to undergo procedures like tooth extractions or root canals without experiencing any discomfort.
  • Alleviation of dental fear: For those anxious about dental visits, sleep dentistry can help ease fears. Many patients overcome their fears and transition to regular dental treatments without the need for sedation medication.
