Sedation

Choosing sedation dentistry allows you to relax sufficiently in order to get the dental treatment you need. Whether you have been unable to get dental work due to anxiety or another issue, Walden Dental has the solution for you. Talk to the dentists in our Chandler, AZ, office today about your options for sedation dentistry.


Sever Gag Reflex

Everyone has a gag reflex — it’s our body’s way of preventing us from choking. However, some people have an extremely sensitive gag reflex. It can be triggered by dental tools or simply anxiety. Regardless, if you suffer from a severe gag reflex and are unable to tolerate dental treatment, your dental health can suffer. Our dentists in our Chandler, AZ, office can help, with sedation dentistry.

Dental Anxiety

Do you have dental anxiety or dental phobia? Whether it’s due to a bad experience you once had with a dentist or an unknown reason, dental anxiety prevents you from getting the dental care you need. Walden Dental can help. Our dentists offer several different methods of dental sedation to help you relax enough to receive the dental treatment you need.

Fear Of Needles

Many people suffer from a fear of needles. This keeps them from receiving the health care they need, such as inoculations, blood tests and dental work. At our Chandler, AZ, dentist’s office, we routinely use needles to administer anesthetics before restorative dentistry and cosmetic dentistry procedures. If you require dental work and are afraid of needles, our dentists can relieve your anxiety with dental sedation.

Extremely Sensitive Teeth

Many people have sensitive teeth. This problem is often easily remedied by using a special toothpaste. When it’s not, however, getting even a dental cleaning can be painful. If this sounds familiar to you, sedation dentistry can help. The dentists at Walden Dental can administer a sedative before your procedure so that you will be comfortable throughout your dental visit.

Oral Sedation
Nitrous Oxide (N2O)
IV Sedation
General Anesthesia

With this method, you will take an oral sedative roughly an hour before your appointment with Dr. Walden. This will help you feel completely relaxed throughout your visit but does require that a companion drive you to and from your appointment. Drowsiness may last for several hours.

Nitrous oxide is administered via a facial mask and begins to work within minutes. The odorless gas will deliver a feeling of euphoria that will last until the mask is removed. The effects wear off immediately, allowing you to drive home after your appointment.

When you opt for IV sedation in Chandler, AZ, Dr. Walden will administer medication intravenously to alleviate your dental anxiety. This method allows you to remain able to follow instructions during the procedure but have no memory of the procedure afterward.

Rarely utilized for dental anxiety alone, general anesthesia is incorporated into treatment when patients are immune to IV sedation drugs, in cases of extensive dental surgery, or for patients who are unable to respond and cooperate with the dentist. With this method, you will sleep through the procedure.

A Little About Sedation

Relief From Dental Anxiety With Sedation Dentistry

Does the thought of going to the dentist make you feel anxious? You are not alone. Those with dental anxiety or fear of needles find these issues interfere with their ability to get the dental care they need.

Our dentists provide options for sedation dentistry to make treatment possible for patients with all kinds of challenges.

A Little About Sedation

Types Of Challenges

  • Severe gag reflex: A severe gag reflex can prevent you from being able to have dental tools inside your mouth.
  • Fear of needles: Dentists deliver anesthetic by needle, meaning dental work becomes impossible in patients with a fear of needles.
  • Dental anxiety: Many patients are afraid of the dentist. Sedation dentistry can help you relax.
  • Allergies: If you are allergic to anesthetic, you can get dental work done under sedation instead.
  • Extremely sensitive teeth and gums: Dental work shouldn’t hurt. If you have sensitive teeth and gums, sedation dentistry makes getting dental work possible.
  • Complicated or extensive dental treatment: It can be hard to undergo hours of treatment to receive the dental care you need. With sedation, it’s much easier.
  • Medical or behavioral problems: Adults or children who find it hard to sit still even for short periods can benefit from sedation dentistry.
