Sedation DentistryFor many patients, a trip to the dentist creates an overwhelming sense of panic or anxiety. It is that fear that has kept so many people from getting much-needed dental care. To help patients relax, Dr. Griffin offers a revolutionary option called conscious sedation. Conscious sedation dentistry, available at our City Center office in Newport News, allows maximum comfort during dental treatment and is extremely safe. Sedation dentistry helps the patient enter a complete state of relaxation, where he will be virtually unaware of any treatment. The patient is gently awakened after treatment and has no recollection of any discomfort.
Sedation dentistry allows for a faster, more comfortable dental visit. Dr. Griffin may complete multiple long procedures - even years' worth of dental work - in just one convenient appointment. A wide variety of procedures and treatments can be accomplished with the aid of sedation dentistry. At our City Center Newport News, Virginia, office, Dr. Griffin can place porcelain crowns, porcelain veneers, or dentures while a patient is sedated. All of this can be accomplished without any discomfort.
Dr. Griffin and his team have completed special training and coursework to receive his credentials in conscious sedation dentistry, so you may rest assured that you are in the hands of educated and knowledgeable professionals.
