At Dr. Vinson’s office our priority is to make our patients as comfortable and relaxed as possible. We understand that undergoing a dental procedure causes anxiety and uneasiness in many people. To ensure your comfort, we offer IV sedation before major procedures. If anxiety is an issue for you on your dental visits, sedation can certainly help. With sedation, we are often able to get more dental work done in fewer appointments and complete complex dental procedures in less time.
A consultation with Dr. Vinson will be the first step to determine if sedation is necessary and at what dosage. The second step will be your treatment appointment. We have a Nurse Anesthetist present to ensure your safety and comfort. With moderate sedation, you will be conscious so that we may communicate with you. However, you will not remember the procedure.
We love seeing you, but we understand the feeling may not always be mutual. If you have anxiety about a dental procedure, be sure to talk to Dr. Vinson on your next visit and see if sedation is right for you.
