All you have to do is simply take a little pill, and most of our patients say it feels as though they have slept through the entire procedure and that they do not remember a thing about their appointment. Sedation dentistry has ever been easier or more accessible.
We have the latest dental technology, perform minimally invasive dental techniques, but many of our patients still suffer from a great fear of the dentist. Their past bad dental experiences and fear of pain can cause great stress and anxiety before they even walk through our doors. Many times, just walking through the front door of the office for the first time, is the most difficult part of getting their dental care completed. If you happen to be one of the millions of people who have ignored their dental problems because of anxiety and fear, you can now take a deep breath and relax. Dr. Weaver understands your concerns and offers sedation dentistry Hendersonville for a uniquely exceptional dental experience. He has personally provided patients with over 3,000 sedation dentistry experiences. His office team has provided over 5,000 total sedation dentistry patient experiences.
Here at our practice, we find that our patients can safely have years of dental work completed in one visit. We find that even very long visits in the dental chair can be comfortable for patients choosing the sedation dentistry option. It makes everything easier.
How does all this work?
Typically, you will take medication before your treatment appointment. The amount and type of medication will be determined at your initial consultation. Our goal is to have you feeling very sleepy, but still able to respond to verbal stimulus when needed. While you’re under the effects of sedation, Dr. Weaver and his expert team will perform the dental procedures for that visit, and afterwards, you will find that you have little or no memory of the procedure! With sedation dentistry, many procedures can be performed during one dental visit alone. In one visit, years of problems or neglect can be corrected in a relatively short period of time.
