Conscious Sedation

Fear of the dentist and dental work is common and something we see in many patients. Many choose to forego regular visits and appointments because of extreme anxiety and apprehension. Innovations in dentistry have come a long way and there’s no more reason for patients to be fearful or feel apprehensive. There is now an easy way to get the treatments you need without the sounds, bad tastes, or thoughts normally associated with visits to the dentist. Cunningham Dental proudly offers conscious sedation in Paducah, Kentucky.

Many patients confuse the different types of sedation dentistry available. While some practices offer sleep dentistry, Cunningham Dental specializes in conscious sedation in Paducah. This process involves the range of sedation where patients stay awake, but have a reduced awareness of what is going on. It’s the best way to get the treatment you need without worrying about any pain or other negative thoughts normally associated with the dentist or dental work. Most patients forget that they even went to the dentist at all!

Nitrous oxide or laughing gas, and oral conscious sedation are the two most common solutions used in conscious sedation dentistry. Both options bring you to a relaxed state of mind and make you less aware of the events taking place inside the dental office.

There are many benefits to conscious sedation – you feel no pain at all and the likelihood of experiencing horrible tastes, gagging, or unpleasant noises or smells drops to almost zero. You will have little to no recollection of what may have been a painful procedure at the end; only a beautiful and healthier smile.
