Imagine having your dental procedure performed while you nap comfortably and arouse without any memory of the procedure. Dr. Hardy can do this for you with the use of intravenous sedation.
If you are someone who cringes at the sounds a dentral drill makes, has a fear of needles, have particularly sensitive teeth, or someone who is immune to the numbing effects of typical local anesthetics, you might be a candidate for sedation dentistry.
Be aware that sedation dentistry is not for everyone. However, for those who have been avoiding getting their teeth fixed because of the fear of discomfort, this method can be extremely beneficial. Contact our office to see if sedation dentistry is right for you.
Dr. Hardy also has nitrous oxide, better known as laughing gas, for use during procedures. This is a sedative inhalant that will induce a mild state of euphoria and relaxation which can make dental visits much easier for patients who experience stress when having dental work done.
