Sedation Dentistry in Appleton, WI
What is Sedation?
Sedation is a technique that aims to pharmacologically alter your central nervous system (CNS) to produce an overall deeper calm and relaxed (sedated) sensation. Sedative drugs (tranquillizers, depressants, anxiolytics, etc.) are used to induce sedation and can be administered by taking a small pill 1 hour before your scheduled appointment. Nitrous oxide is also usually administered to achieve an overall maximum effect.
Dr. Luther is highly experienced in sedation dentistry, extensively trained in both oral and IV sedation as part of his prestigious general practice hospital residency in Seattle, Washington. Seeking his advice, rather than foregoing treatment because of fear and potential pain, gives people the opportunity to undergo critical procedures that they would have otherwise avoided. Just ask one of Dr. Luther’s highly trained staff for specific details.
To help reduce any anxiety or apprehension even more, we also offer cable TV and massaging dental chairs in all of our treatment rooms, along with movie video glasses and Pandora radio headphones if requested. Come watch a sitcom like “Friends” or “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” or a drama such as “CSI:” or “House, M.D.” while you are being treated. They all do an excellent job of relaxing your body and distracting your brain!
