Sedation Dentistry Philadelphia – Sleep Dentist
Anxious about visiting the dentist? Don’t let your worries keep you from maintaining your oral health. Dr. Nidhi Shah, Dr. Yoel Calzada-Sanchez, Dr. Kanak Trivedi and Dr. Dilip Dudhat at Advanced Family Smiles provide a comforting and friendly atmosphere for our patients. If you are particularly nervous about an upcoming procedure, our dentists offer both nitrous and IV sedation to help your treatment go smoothly.
Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a safe and effective way to keep patients calm throughout their treatment. The gas is inhaled through a mask, putting patients in a manageable, calm state or even completely unconscious. The effects wear off quickly and work well for children or for patients who would like to regain full function immediately after their procedure.
For a fast-acting treatment, IV sedation can work more quickly than laughing gas or other sedation forms. The medication is injected into the vein and causes the patient to a deeper, more senseless state. This works well for patients undergoing implant, tooth extractions, or any other high-intensity procedures.
These sedation methods help our dentists perform procedures more quickly and safely, and help you have an agreeable, successful visit. Contact our dental office to learn more about sedation dentistry in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
