Sedation Dentistry in Kernersville, North Carolina

Don’t Let Anxiety Stand Between You & Your Dental Health. Our Kernersville practice aims to provide oral care that not only meets our patients’ physical needs but also prioritizes their overall well-being. We realize that many people experience a great deal of stress when contemplating an upcoming dental procedure. Our team at Infinity Dental seeks to improve the experience for our more anxious patients through providing sedation dentistry.

Sedation Dentistry in Kernersville, North Carolina

Typically, a local anesthetic is applied to the site of the procedure to numb the area and prevent any pain or discomfort from being felt. This anesthetic can then be combined with a more advanced form of sedation if necessary.

If you have questions about sedation dentistry, we have answers. Contact us today to learn more!

The three types of sedation offered at Infinity Dental are:

  • Laughing Gas: This mild form of sedation is inhaled as a gas and helps you relax during a procedure, but wears off quickly afterward.
  • Oral sedation: typically consumed in pill form, the strength ranges from mild to moderate depending on the dose and induces drowsiness or sleep.
  • IV sedation: strong sedative infused directly into the bloodstream through an IV that causes deep sleep.

Get the Care You Need, Without the Stress

At Infinity Dental, we understand your worry – millions of people feel the same anxiety whenever they go to the dentist. However, it is critically important that you are still receiving thorough dental care to maintain full-body health. Because we offer sedative options for procedures ranging from basic cleanings and fillings to much more involved services such as root canals or crown placement, you can be certain that you are receiving the specialized care you need, without the apprehension.

Sedation FAQs

If you have anxiety or fear about going to the dentist you are a candidate for sedation dentistry. If you have a fear of pain, have had a traumatic dental experience in the past, or the sounds and smells of a dental office make you nauseous, sedation dentistry can help you get over your anxiety.

Some people have physical reasons, like a bad gag reflex or very sensitive teeth, which make them a candidate for sedation dentistry as well. If you are not sure if you are a candidate ask your dentist.

No, but you will be in a deep state of relaxation during your treatment. You will still be able to breathe on your own and communicate, but you will not feel any pain or anxiety. You may not even remember the procedure afterwards.

Sedation can last from about 2-6 hours depending on the strength of sedative you are given and how long your procedure takes.

Yes, at all times during your sedation someone will be with you. We also monitor your vitals to make sure they remain at a normal level. Safety is of the utmost importance to us.

No. You will feel a little groggy and "out of it" after some forms of sedation, but after a few hours you will feel like yourself again. You will need to have someone drive you home from your appointment in these cases.

Just about any procedure can be performed with sedation. The sedation is not for the procedure itself, but for the anxiety that accompanies the procedure. Ask your dentist if sedation is available for a particular procedure.

In most cases it only takes two appointments. The first appointment will be a consultation to check your health history and make sure you are a candidate for sedation. The next appointment will be to perform the necessary procedures. This can usually be done in one appointment but may require a follow-up visit.

In most cases it will not be covered by your insurance provider. We will review your insurance coverage and let you know if it is covered or not. If it is not covered, we will let you know the cost and, if necessary, we can put together a financing plan for you.

I got my wisdom teeth taken out at this office, the staff and dentist made me feel so much better about it. I was so nervous but they calmed me down and reassured me everything would be alright. The recovery from surgery was so much easier than I thought. I had a great experience and the people there are so sweet!

Professional and caring dentist and staff. Dr. Bhatti takes the time to explain different treatments and their pros and cons. He spends the time necessary to serve his patients, even at the sacrifice of his and his staff’s free time. One of the hardest adjustments is to work with a new care provider but Dr. Bhatti made it easy.
