Sedation Dentistry or Dental Sedation
For some patients, dentistry can be rather difficult to endure. Perhaps there was a difficult dental experience early in life, or maybe a low threshold of discomfort. Whatever the reason, such patients can be very well-served through the enhanced comfort available with sedation dentistry.
For many patients, a trip to the dentist creates an overwhelming sense of panic or anxiety. It is this fear that has kept so many people from getting much-needed dental care. To help patients relax, Dr. Griffin has received advanced training, including advanced cardiac life support, so that he can offer a revolutionary option called conscious sedation. Conscious sedation dentistry, available at our City Center office in Newport News, allows maximum comfort during dental treatment and is extremely safe. Sedation dentistry helps the patient enter a complete state of relaxation, where he will be virtually unaware of any treatment. The patient is gently awakened after treatment and has no recollection of any discomfort.
