Sedation Dentistry

Your Little Rock Sedation Dentist

At Tracy T. Windham DDS General Dentistry, Dr. Windham and his team understand that some patients may be nervous about visiting the dentist. We want to make a visit to our office as comfortable and pleasant as possible for each one of our patients. That’s why we offer sedation dentistry at our Little Rock office for patients who need extensive dental work done and for patients who are apprehensive about dental treatment.

IV Sedation Dentistry In Little Rock

As your local Little Rock dentist specializing in sedation dentistry, we understand that a phobia or bad experiences in the past can make some patients worrisome about visiting a dental office, which is why we use advanced sedation techniques to help you get the dental treatment you need. One sedation technique we use is intravenous sedation (IV), also known as monitored anesthesia care. IV sedation is a type of anesthesia that relaxes a patient through an IV, so it goes to work quickly. The effect is having no awareness of your procedure.

Before using a sedative or anesthetic, it is important to tell our staff about any medications or medical treatments you are receiving. Before having any sedative or anesthetic, Dr. Windham will talk to you about the process of sedation and pre-and post-sedation instructions.
