Licensed sedation dentist Ramon Bana, DDS provides in-house “sleep dentistry” options that allow patients to feel more relaxed and at ease during their dental procedure. Sedation dentistry in Miami, FL is a perfect option for anyone experiencing phobia, previous dental anxiety, or large treatment needs.
While not actually asleep, sedation dentistry does use prescription strength medications to help our patients relax to the point where they feel as if they’re daydreaming. The amnesic effects cause most people to forget much of their appointment. You’ll need to have a trusted friend or family member accompany you to this visit. Or, choose lighter inhalation sedation (“laughing gas”) to ease your mind, without the lingering drowsiness afterward. You can even drive yourself home!
Even if you’re not generally nervous about seeing the dentist, Ramon Bana, DDS may recommend dental sedation if you need a more complex oral surgery (such as wisdom tooth removal or dental implant placement) or require multiple procedures being completed in fewer visits.
Your comfort allows Dr. Bana to perform your care more efficiently, providing you with shorter and less frequent trips to the dentist.
Each of our patients is carefully screened and a medical form is completed to ensure that we rule out any potential risk factors that may influence the outcome of your care. Be sure to share any recent hospitalizations, surgeries, and medications being taken, so that we can arrange the most appropriate type of sedative medication for your situation.
Avoiding the dental treatment that you need only allows your oral health condition to progress, becoming more painful and expensive to correct. Thanks to sedation dentistry in Miami, FL, you’ll be able to catch up on the care you need rather than avoid the dentist altogether.
