“A very pleasant experience…”
Marleton, New Jersey
Are dental fears and anxiety keeping you away from the dentist? Dental phobia affects a significant portion of the population, causing many to avoid dental visits due to apprehension. At Briglia Dental Group, we understand these concerns and offer sedation dentistry services to provide a relaxing and anxiety-free experience. With over 18 years of expertise in oral sedation and dental IV sedation, West Chester, PA, sleep dentist Dr. Ron Briglia has successfully helped numerous patients in Chester County receive the dental care they need while ensuring their comfort.
Sedation dentistry, also known as dental sedation and sleep dentistry, refers to the use of medication to help patients relax and remain calm during dental procedures. The level of sedation can vary, ranging from minimal sedation or conscious sedation, where patients are awake but relaxed, to deep sedation, where patients are almost unconscious but can still be awakened if necessary.
The type of sedation used will depend on the patient’s level of anxiety and the complexity of the dental procedure. The sedation process is carefully monitored by experienced dental professionals to ensure safety and optimal patient comfort. At Briglia Dental Group, we offer IV sedation and oral conscious sedation.
IV sedation, or dental IV sedation, involves the administration of sedative medication intravenously to induce a deep state of relaxation and comfort during dental procedures. This type of sedation is particularly useful for patients with severe dental anxiety or those undergoing complex and lengthy treatments. With IV sedation, the medication takes effect quickly, and the level of sedation can be adjusted as needed throughout the procedure.
As a conscious sedation method, IV sedation allows you to remain conscious, but in a deeply relaxed state. You may not remember much of the procedure afterward due to the amnesic effect of the medication. Dental IV sedation provides patients with a safe and comfortable experience, allowing them to receive the necessary dental care without anxiety or discomfort.
Oral conscious sedation, or oral sedation, involves the use of oral medication to induce a state of relaxation and calmness during dental procedures. Patients typically take the prescribed medication in the form of a pill or liquid before their appointment. The medication helps to reduce anxiety, fear, and discomfort, making it easier for patients to undergo dental treatments. With oral conscious sedation, patients remain conscious throughout the procedure but experience a heightened sense of relaxation.
The medication has a sedative effect, allowing patients to feel more at ease and less aware of the dental work being performed. Oral sedation is a popular choice for patients with mild to moderate dental anxiety or those who have a difficult time sitting still during dental procedures.
