Comfortable Dental Visits With Sedation Dentistry

During your initial consultation with Dr. Michael Allard in Glendale, AZ he will discuss the type of procedure involved, your medical history and your level of anxiety. Various procedures require various anesthesia techniques. The choice of anesthesia is a personal decision and should be made only after an informative consultation with Dr. Allard.

Not every patient is comfortable in the dental chair, or with the needles commonly used to administer local anesthetic. Some may suffer from dental anxiety due to a bad experience or fear of pain or discomfort. Unfortunately, this can result in avoiding dental appointments until a condition becomes severe. Dr. Allard is committed to your oral health and wants to ensure that everyone is able to get the care they need in a comfortable environment. If you suffer from dental anxiety, schedule an appointment with Dr. Michael Allard at in Glendale, AZ for sedation dentistry. Varying levels of sedation are able to be offered to our patients in our state of the art facility, including:
•  Local anesthesia (numbing)
•  Intravenous (IV) sedation
•  Oral sedation
•  Nitrous oxide (N2O)
•  General anesthesia

Nitrous Oxide (N2O)

Also known as laughing gas, N2O is a popular form of sedation dentistry due to the immediacy of its effects. When the colorless gas is administered through a face mask, you will feel euphoric within five minutes, easing dental anxiety. When the mask is taken away, the effects wear off within minutes, leaving you free to drive yourself to and from your appointment.

Oral Sedation

Moderate dental anxiety may also be eased by oral sedation. With this method, a pill is taken roughly an hour before you arrive for your appointment with Dr. Allard. By the time you arrive at our office, you will feel relaxed and drowsy. This is an excellent option for those who fear dental procedures but are also uncomfortable with the needle used for intravenous sedation.

IV Sedation/General Anesthesia

Administered via an IV, intravenous conscious sedation, deep IV sedation, and general anesthesia are safe methods of effectively treating patients with moderate to severe dental anxiety. State of the art monitoring devices—EKG, pulse oximetry, end-tidal CO2 monitors and pre-cordial stethoscopes, coupled with advanced training in these techniques, allows an optimal environment for maximizing patient care in a relaxed, comfortable environment.

Regardless of the level of fear and dental anxiety, we can provide comfort through various sedation methods. To schedule your consultation with Dr. Michael Allard in Glendale, AZ, contact our office today.
