Are you anxious about a visit to the dentist? If so, you might be interested in learning about sleep dentistry. Sleep dentistry uses sedatives, in different strengths depending on your level of anxiety, to help you enter into a serene, relaxed state of mind during your appointment. Pierce Street Dental offers several sleep dentistry options to Birmingham-Beverly Hills residents.
For a moderate level of sedation we can prescribe oral sedatives or anti-anxiety medication. You simply take the pill before your visit to our office and the sedative will keep you calm while you are here.
For patients wanting a mild to moderate level of sedation we offer nitrous oxide. This sedative has been in traditional use in dentistry for over a century. Nitrous oxide sedation wears off very quickly after your appointment.
Please note that all sedatives will impair your ability to drive and may leave you drowsy. You will not be able to drive home from your appointment so please arrange transportation and someone to care for you at home.
