Sedation Dentist in Valrico, Florida
Are you afraid of the dentist? Do you hate the sound of drilling or have a strong gag reflex? Has a poor experience with a previous dentist made you nervous about trying again? Don’t let fear keep you from having the oral health you deserve.
Riverview FL sedation dentist Dr. Bynum helps high-fear patients overcome their dental anxiety through oral sedation dentistry and the scientifically safe and sound methods for calming a patient for dental care.
Oral Sedation Dentistry Procedures
With his sedation dentistry certification, Dr. Bynum has the training necessary to offer the following types of sedation to his patients:
- Relaxation dentistry – this first level of sedation dentistry doesn’t use drugs at all but refers to the calming environment we’ve created in our beautiful dental office. Our quiet treatment rooms and available personalized DVD viewing options make it easy to be comfortable at the dentist.
- Conscious Sedation with Nitrous Oxide – The time-tested effects of nitrous oxide—a.k.a. laughing gas—increases a patient’s tolerance for pain while creating a state of relaxation for the patient.
- Conscious Sedation with Oral Sedatives – If laughing gas isn’t going to be enough, patients can also opt for oral conscious sedation. Taken an hour before an appointment, a small pill containing a sedative such as Triazolam (Halcion) or Diazepam (Valium) will induce a deeper state of relaxation for the patient and permit extensive dental work to be performed. With these proven and safe sedatives, patients will sometimes nod off—a completely natural affect that gives oral sedation dentistry the nickname “sleep dentistry.“
- IV Sedation – For those wishing to have no memory of a dental visit, IV sedation is also available. Administered under careful conditions, IV sedation allows the dentist to complete large and complex dental procedures quickly, while monitoring the patient’s vitals the entire time.
