Is fear of the dentist preventing you from getting the dental care you need? You are not alone.
It is estimated that 3 out of every 10 American adults avoid the dentist because of fear and anxiety. Dr. Hoffert offers oral conscious sedation dentistry options to help you feel comfortable and relaxed in our Asheville dental office.
Sedation Dentistry is only administered through close care and guidance to minimize side effects and ensure both your comfort and safety during treatment. It is important to let us know if you are currently taking any medications, either prescription or over the counter.
IV Sedation Dentistry
Dr. Hoffert also offers the option of IV sedation should you desire to be fully sedated during a dental procedure. She received training and certification during her Air Force General Dentistry residency program and has over 10 years of experience administering IV sedation to patients.
Under IV sedation, you will remain conscious, but mostly likely have no memory of the treatment afterwards.
Oral Sedation Dentistry
Oral sedation dentistry is one of the most common techniques in the United States to treat dental phobia. Administered in the form of a pill, this technique will keep you completely relaxed and fully “awake”. Most patients who utilize this form of sedation dentistry have no memory of their procedure.
