Sedation DentistryHow sedation dentistry from your periodontist in Lexington can help you

If dental appointments make you uneasy, you are not alone. Many people suffer from a very real fear of dental appointments, but don’t be afraid! Sedation dentistry can help you have a virtually worry-free appointment. Dr. David Rosen in Lexington, MA, wants to share how sedation dentistry can help you. He proudly serves residents of Lexington, Northwest Boston, and the surrounding areas.

Dental anxiety and fear aren’t all in your head. In fact, dental fear produces some very real physical symptoms including a racing heartbeat, shortness of breath, sweating, and other symptoms. The truth is dental fear can make you procrastinate and not get necessary dental work completed, which can lead to problems with your smile and your general health.

When you choose sedation dentistry, you will enjoy important benefits like these:

  • A comfortable appointment
  • A relaxing experience
  • Getting more dental work completed in a shorter amount of time

Dr. Rosen offers several options, depending on the level of sedation you want to achieve. Consider:

  • Oral sedation taken as a pill; if you need to be mildly to moderately sedated, but are still able to respond to questions.
  • Intravenous sedation which is injected directly into a vein; the sedative effects of IV sedation are immediate and profound. You may not remember your appointment.

When you choose sedation dentistry, it is vitally important to bring someone with you who can drive you home after your appointment.
