Dr. Mohamed Ali believes that all patients should feel comfortable when receiving dental treatment. For individuals who suffer from fear when receiving dental treatment, sedation dentistry can provide both comfort and safety. In addition, sedation dentistry may be beneficial for individuals who:
- Have a low threshold for pain.
- Cannot sit for long periods in a dentist’s chair.
- Have sensitive teeth.
- Require a large amount of dental work.
- Have a bad gag reflex.
- Patients with a health issue such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
At Dr. Mohamed Ali’s practice, IV sedation is available to patients. It is administered through the veins, and Dr. Mohamed Ali can adjust the levels of the sedation throughout the procedure. Because the levels of sedation can be adjusted, Dr. Ali has more control of the effects throughout a procedure.
Our office is unique in its certification to provide this service to patients. With sedation dentistry, patients can relax while dental procedures are being completed. A patient typically awakens from a procedure, or a series of procedures, and does not have recollection of the time spent in the dental chair.
During a consultation with Dr. Mohamed Ali, all of your questions about sedation dentistry can be answered and you can learn if sedation dentistry is a good option for you.
