Oral Sedation Dentistry

Sedation safely reduces anxiety and increases comfort

At Tryon Family Dentistry, we understand that our patients may be fearful of going to the dentist because they fear any pain or discomfort associated with dental treatment.

What is Sedation Dentistry

Oral sedation dentistry involves the administration of sedative drugs via an oral route, generally to facilitate a dental procedure and reduce a patient’s anxiety related to the experience.

Why We Use Sedation Dentistry

  • Relieves anxiety
  • Increases comfort
  • Eases Odontophobia
  • Effective
  • Safe

Oral sedation also aids in reducing memory or the sights and smells of the dental office to avoid recall of any trauma. The sedative effect allows for more dentistry to be completed in fewer appointments, as well as allowing complex procedures to be performed more quickly.

Aftercare

Oral sedation is pill-based, and effects can last for several hours after treatment. For this reason, it is not recommended to drive yourself home after receiving oral sedatives.

“I just left this dentist office and I am so impressed. I was able to complete all my paperwork online so I did not have to arrive early and I had only a short wait time once there. While there I learned of tools that I could use at home and even saw what my smile would look like with Invisalign. I walked away with a good experience and my treatment plan. Friendly staff, extremely clean and I felt thoroughly taken care of. Thank you Tryon Family Dentistry”

“I just moved to the area and needed to find a new dentist. After looking through tons of reviews, I settled on this dentist, and after my visit decided that this place will be my new go-to! The doctor was fantastic. Was so thorough, took the time to explain to me what was going on with my teeth, always checking to make sure that I was doing okay, and was so friendly and caring. I would recommend them to anyone. I’ll be back.”

The Latest in Aligner Technology

What Is Invisalign?

Instead of relying on metal brackets and wires to move teeth, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners custom designed for each patient’s individual treatment plan. The aligners are designed to fit snugly over your teeth so they don’t interfere with your normal activities or your speech. Because they are clear, they are hardly noticeable and provide the utmost discretion during treatment.
