Sedation Dentistry near me Putney
If you are searching for a dentist "near me" in the Putney area who offers sedation dentistry, now is the time to connect with Dr. Etienne Potgieter and the team of Gentle Dental Putney. Our practice offers sedation dentistry for patients to provide them a comfortable, relaxing experience when having their oral health care needs met. We understand even the bravest of patients may feel anxiety during their appointments. Our practice has the sedative solutions available to make each experience at the dental office a positive one. We offer two methods of sedation:
  • Oral conscious sedation
  • IV sedation

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation is best used for patients with minor to moderate anxieties. This method utilizes an oral medication that is administered to the patient prior to their visit to the dental office. Patients are awake and relaxed, able to follow instructions, but are not to drive. Patients need to arrange transportation to and from their appointment. When patients return home to rest after their appointment, they often awaken with little to no memory of the visit. This makes it easier for patients to have procedures performed.

IV Sedation

An option for our severely anxious patients is IV sedation. This gives sedative medications through the bloodstream. Many patients fall asleep and are unaware of their surroundings while procedures are performed. This is the strongest method of sedation available in our practice and is done with special monitoring by an anesthesiologist.
