Do you find yourself struggling to fit dental appointments around your family’s hectic schedule or your busy daily responsibilities?
Yes. There’s good news for you. Having Sedation Dentistry/Conscious Sedation in our Connecticut office enables you to have all your dental care safely and comfortably completed in one appointment. It’s better than having to schedule several appointments and dread going to each one time after time.
What type of sedation dentistry is used in our Connecticut Sedation Dentist Office?
Sedation Dentist, Thomas Peltzer D.M.D., uses Sleep Dentistry/Conscious Sedation as the most common type of anesthesia. Our patients are blissfully unaware while their dentistry being done. Recovery is rapid and comfortable.
Conscious Sedation is a safe and modern technique of sedation dentistry using intravenous medications. Patients are placed in a relaxed comfortable state allowing dental care to be provided without fear or anxiety. There is no memory of the procedure.
Why do so many adults avoid going to the dentist and having necessary dental care?
According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) 37 million Americans avoid dental care because of fear, pain and anxiety. Sedation Dentistry has proven to be an excellent choice for dental patients wanting anesthesia/sedation. Fear of going to the dentist ranks second only to fear of public speaking. Dr. Peltzer in Connecticut has years of experience, advanced training and skill to help you with your fear.
Who provides Sedation Dentistry at our CT Sedation Dentist office?
Sleep Dentistry Conscious Sedation is provided by a highly trained dentist anesthesiologist who fully monitors you throughout the appointment. Medical monitoring equipment is the same as the type used in hospitals.
How closely are patients monitored while under conscious sedation?
A close minute by minute, continuous watch is kept on our patient’s vital signs such as heart rate, breathing, blood pressure, oxygen saturation and more. Special care and continuous monitoring of patients under anesthesia/sedation enhances patients safety, especially for those patients who have special medical conditions.
Are patients able to respond during their treatment with Sedation Dentistry?
Yes. Unlike general anesthesia which renders patients unconscious, Sedation Dentistry….allows patients to respond. This enables completion of treatment in a very short amount of time.
Can children with dental needs have Sedation Dentistry?
Yes, children usually have no recall of the procedure.Sedation Dentistry lessens the child’s awareness of the dental procedure. A happier child maintains a more positive attitude about future dental care.
Does Sedation Dentistry improve recovery?
The majority of patients are pleasantly pleased and surprised because they have little discomfort after the procedure. Dr. Peltzer often reports patients who have Sleep Dentistry usually require less post operative pain medication after surgery. Dr. Peltzer also reports that patients seem to heal better and faster with sedation dentistry.
If a patient has a medical condition, is Sedation Dentistry “in a dental office” a wise choice of treatment?
