CBS News Segment – Sedation Dentistry
In this video Dr. Rutherford discusses the many benefits of sedation dentistry with CBS News Anchor Krista Escamilla. Dr. Rutherford describes sedation dentistry as has one of the greatest dental breakthroughs in the last ten years. Sedation, or sleep dentistry, offers patients a safe and easy way to relax during a dental visit and remember little if any of their treatment. Fearful patients who may have avoided going to the dentist in the past can now receive the treatment the deserve.
At The Art of Dentistry we provide oral conscious sedation which is generally safer than being sedated intravenously. A couple of small pills are taken prior to procedures such as tooth colored fillings, root canals, porcelain veneers, and dental implants. The patient can remain conscious and aware, but typically have only a slight recollection of their visit. For more information on your sedation dentistry options please call our office at (432) 367-0202.
