What is sedation dentistry?

At Great Grins, we understand that many patients feel nervous, anxious, or even scared about visiting the dentist. We want to ensure that each visit to our office is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. To reach this goal, Dr. Susan A. Vanstone offers sedation dentistry in Richmond, Kentucky. Sedation dentistry involves using safe, effective sedatives to help you feel calm and relaxed during your time at our office. We offer oral sedation to make your visit as laid-back as possible.

Oral sedation involves taking a sedative medication in pill form before your appointment at our office. This will help you feel more relaxed during your visit. You will take the pill about an hour before the procedure, and it will make you feel a little drowsy. There is no need to fear – this will make you feel relaxed while still being awake. Be sure to have a family member or friend available to drive you to and from our office.

With sedation dentistry, you can feel confident that your visit to our office will be positive and comfortable. We welcome you to call us today to learn more about how we can make your dental experience more enjoyable.
