Get Sedation Dentistry
For some people, it’s not possible or practical to overcome dental anxiety on their own. That’s what sedation dentistry is for. To help people with this level of dental anxiety, Las Vegas sedation dentist Dr. Polley offers multiple sedation options.
Oral Sedation: This is a relatively low-level sedation that helps people with mild to moderate dental anxiety. You’ll be aware of what’s going on, but you won’t care about it very much. It’s simply a pill that you take either before you visit our office or even once you arrive. You’ll have to have someone drive you after you take your sedation medication.
Deep Sedation: For people with more severe dental anxiety, deep sedation is an IV sedation approach that causes you to lose consciousness. You’re not completely out, but you won’t have much awareness of what’s going on.
General Anesthesia: Dr. Polley is one of the few dentists in Las Vegas certified to offer general anesthesia at his dental practice. This helps people with the greatest dental anxiety, as well as those with long and/or invasive dental procedures. You’ll be completely unconscious during the procedure and will wake up only after the procedure is complete.
