Sedation dentistry helps patients with extreme anxiety or those that struggle to cooperate with the dentist. Sedation dentistry is an option for all procedures offered by Dr. Blaisdell. While most of our patients do not need sedation, there are some patients that benefit greatly from having this option. Sedation allows you to have necessary dental work done in a timely manner instead of avoiding it. Dr. Blaisdell always uses licensed dentist anesthesiologists in his practice to ensure his patient’s safety throughout the procedure.
Our patients may be under general anesthesia, which is an unconscious state, or under moderate sedation where you are relaxed and comfortable. We have found that simply knowing you’ll be sedated will often reduce your stress significantly. Instead of avoiding the dental care you need because you are concerned about pain, talk to Dr. Blaisdell and his staff about sedation dentistry and see if you’re a good candidate. Putting off procedures today may potentially lead to more invasive work down the road.
