Growing up, our doctor used to be afraid of the dentist. Today, the dental fears he experienced as a child have made him a more compassionate dentist and an expert in sedation dentistry!
For our patients who have dental anxiety, sensitivity to sound or light, special healthcare needs, or simply need extra support to stay relaxed during their dental appointment, Dr. Shafagh and his team offer the top sedation dentistry services near Havertown, PA, and beyond. Dr. Shafagh has experienced the same dental anxieties faced by so many patients and is here to help with safe, personalized comfort dentistry services.
At HaverCrown Dental, we work with each patient to determine the most effective level of sedation for their individual needs. We're committed to keeping your best interests in mind with every treatment!
Sedation Dentistry Options
Our Havertown, PA dental office offers the following levels of sedation:
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation is delivered in pill form, taken prior to dental treatment to produce a mild to moderate sedative effect. Patients may feel drowsy, or if moderately sedated, may fall into a light sleep. HaverCrown Dental offers oral conscious sedation as a customizable sedation solution to help patients stay relaxed.
Laughing gas, or inhalation sedation, is a form of light sedation typically offered to patients who experience mild anxiety during dental treatment. It takes the form of a colorless, odor-free gas, administered through a safe, comfortable breathing mask.
Dr. Shafagh will determine the safest amount of laughing gas for you, ensuring your maximum comfort. With this form of sedation, you can expect to be fully relaxed while still fully awake and able to follow instructions.
