Millions of Americans suffer from some level of dental anxiety. At Phinney Ridge Dental, our team specializes in treating fearful and anxious patients.
Our compassionate team comforts patients who feel stress in the dental chair, and we strive to make their experience as calming and stress-free as possible. When you need some additional help relaxing for your treatment, we offer sedation dentistry in Seattle.
How Does It Work?
#1 Before Your Treatment
Before your treatment, Dr. Bickel will review your medical history and current medication list to determine if sedation dentistry is safe for you. If you are cleared to undergo sedation, we will prescribe an oral medication for you to take before your appointment.
#2 During Your Treatment
Once the medication kicks in, you will feel at ease and relaxed. Throughout the treatment, we will be by your side to monitor your vitals and make sure you remain safe and comfortable. We will also completely anesthetize the treatment area so you don’t experience any pain.
#3 After Your Treatment
Oral sedation can last for many hours, so you will need a friend or loved one to drive you to and from our dental office. After a full night’s rest, you will be able to return to your normal, day-to-day routine.
