sleep dentistry Richmond

If you are dreading some upcoming dental treatment, you may want to consider oral conscious sedation. First off, oral conscious sedation or sleep dentistry is perfectly safe. At White & White, we have been providing sedation since 2004. We offer different levels of sedation and a choice of medication including oral analgesics, nitrous oxide, and IV sedation.

When choosing a type of sedation, it is helpful to consider the type of anxiety (fear of immobility, fear of loss of control, fear of pain, etc), the specific procedure(s) you will undergo, the length of time necessary to complete the treatment, past experiences during treatment, and any complicating health troubles. Call 804-302-5592 to schedule a consultation with Drs. J. Scott White, Pranee White, and John Han to discuss your options.

Perhaps you have a dentist-wary child who needs treatment. For simple dental procedures, topical anesthetics are applied to the gums and other tissues reducing sensation. If your child requires more sedation, nitrous oxide and general anesthesia are both safe options.

Perhaps Mommy is the one who is anxious about her child undergoing dental work. Sorry–we can’t sedate you while your child is being treated–but you can take comfort in the fact that we take excellent care of our youngest patients. We make sure they are comfortable, relaxed, and understand exactly what is going to happen. Our team of child-friendly dental professionals have been putting children at ease since 2004.

Regular dental check-ups are essential for your child’s lifelong oral health, so it is important that your child has a positive experience during dental visits. If possible, don’t let your child know that you have dental anxiety. If he/she already knows, explain why your fears are unreasonable and why you are having treatment regardless of your anxiety. Show them how brave Mommy is because she wants healthy teeth.

We offers full-service dental care including porcelain veneers, wisdom teeth removal, and Six Month Smiles. Thanks for visiting our blog. Check back for more helpful dental specifics from White & White in Midlothian.

Sedation Dentistry in Midlothian Picture the following scenario: You are stretched out in a chair at your Midlothian dentist office holding a remote as you try to tune into your favorite Virginia radio station. A woman clips a paper bib around your neck. Someone switches on a bright overhead light and you see latex-gloved hands moving toward your open mouth. You close your eyes.

As you read this, does your heart start to race? Are your palms sweaty?

If so, you may be a good candidate for sedation dentistry. Oral sedation benefits nervous dental patients in Midlothian every day. Moderate sedation is used for all types of dental procedures such as root canals, dental implants, and wisdom teeth removal. If you are considering extensive restorative or cosmetic dental work, conscious sedation may allow your Richmond dentist to complete multiple procedures in a single visit.

Don’t let fear prevent you from getting the dental treatment you need. Schedule a visit with J. Scott & Pranee White to learn about conscious sedation dentistry.
