Are you in desperate need of dental care, but too afraid to go to the
dentist? Are you facing extensive treatment which you cannot fathom without
being "out"? You are not alone. For our patients who need that
extra help to relax, we offer oral sedation.
How It Works
First, we review your medical history. If cleared by your MD, you are
given a pill to take one hour prior to your dental appointment. You will
need a companion to drive you to and from the dental office. The pill
works quickly to create a relaxed state so you will be drowsy when you
arrive. During treatment, your vital signs will be monitored while you
are in a sleep-like state. You will be able to respond to any given commands
or questions, but will not likely recall events while the drug is in
effect. This is ideal for the dental phobic patient.
Beyond creating an optimal environment for you, sedation dentistry allows
us to complete multiple treatments in one appointment. You can relax
while we improve your smile.
