Sedation Dentistry – The Fine Art of Painless Appointments

sedation-dentistryWhat comes to mind when you think of going to the dentist? Day in and day out, millions of people across the nation have dental work done, and yet, for some, dental appointments remain a genuine source of anxiety. Whether due to past painful experiences or simply worry over the unknown, to you, the fear is real and that’s all that matters. Thankfully, San Antonio sedation dentistry expert Dr. Kenneth Krueger understands these fears and does all he can to ensure your visit is pain-free and comfortable.

Anesthesia Tailored to Your Needs

At KRK Implant Center, we offer a variety of anesthesia options. While advanced anesthesia may be required for more extensive procedures, you are also able to select anesthesia based on your personal comfort level and preference. The available options include:

  • Local Anesthesia: all patients receive a base local anesthesia to ensure numbness in the mouth prior to the start of any procedure. In contrast to some practices, we employ very gentle injection techniques to minimize discomfort.
  • Oral Anesthesia: typically used in conjunction with local anesthesia, at your preference, we can prescribe oral medication to take before your procedure begins to assist in your relaxation and allow you to fall asleep while receiving treatment.
  • Conscious IV Sedation: for particularly involved procedures or for patients who experience considerable anxiety while undergoing dental treatment, we recommend conscious intravenous sedation. This method is very safe but effective in allowing you to relax. It’s also well suited to those wishing to have multiple procedures done in a single appointment.

Rest Easy in the Hands of Experience

Sedation methods aside, there’s something to be said about knowing you’re in the hands of an experienced physician. Dr. Krueger has over 30 years of experience in periodontics to put your mind at ease, but more than that, he genuinely cares about the quality of your experience and takes the time answer your questions before any treatment begins.
