Sedation Dentistry in Charlotte, NC

At Serenity Family Dentistry in Charlotte, your comfort is our priority. When you need dental work that could cause pain, we will make that your visit is as painless as possible. We will guide you through everything you can expect during your procedure.

When it comes to sedation, we will work with you to be as comfortable as you can be. We offer both oral sedation and local anesthesia.

Oral Sedation

Only trained and certified dentists can offer oral sedation to relax patients. Oral sedation is often recommended for patients who are anxious and may be afraid of the dental procedure. These fears amplify if a patient has experienced dental trauma earlier in their life.

A relaxed patient also helps the dentist to accomplish her work quicker as the patient is less fidgety.

Many patients prefer oral sedation over local anesthesia because it is known to have amnesia effects leaving the patient unaware of the dental procedure. It is also important to understand that the effects can linger after your office visit is completed. Arrange to have someone drive you to the office and back home.

Local Anesthesia

Unlike oral sedation, local anesthesia does not relax the patient. Administered with a needle, the anesthesia targets a specific location in your mouth. In that area, the nerves are blocked from sensing the pain giving you numbness. Usually, your dentist will give you a topical anesthetic to ease any pain from the needle.

With a local anesthesia, the numbness wears off pretty quickly after your dental visit.

Ask your dentist about any aftercare that you may need.

Our Happy Customers

"I had my first crown put in this past month. SFD, was forever patient as I was dealing with a cough, and continually had to ask to stop for a moment. The team is kind, sweet, and very thorough in explaining what's going on, and the costs, before any work begins. We were honestly thinking of finding a dentist closer to our home, but the staff at SFD has made this drive worth it for my family."

Jim Jim

"Dr. Attaway and her team are thorough and compassionate. They explain procedures and reasons for treatment plans recommended. I was a patient of this clinic prior to Dr. Attaway's arrival, and am pleased that Debbie and Laura are still there, and the new additions are also very nice."

Erin Erin

"Debbie is a great and personable hygienist and Dr. Attaway is gentle and kind. They were very honest with me about my teeth and how I should take care of them. Dr. Attaway even recommended a new mouth wash so that I could hopefully avoid a cavity. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a dentist."
