No matter how gentle we promise to be, we still see patients who are terrified of any kind of dental work. Even a simple checkup can make people tremble with fear.
Oral hygiene and dental care are essential to your body’s health. We want to ensure that you get the treatment you need – without the anxiety you would normally feel during a visit.
Sleep sedation is a safe, comfortable way to have your teeth cared for. With sedation dentistry, as it’s commonly called, you won’t feel any pain or discomfort – in fact, you might not even remember the treatment you’ve received!
Also referred to as “conscious sedation” , we start a intravenous line and proceed to administer sedation drugs to keep you comfortable and relaxed during your dental procedure. The length of time for sedation varies depending on the procedures. Most patient’s state they only remember starting the sedation and then being in our comfortable recovery room.
Your heart rate and oxygen levels are carefully monitored throughout the entire procedure. Before you know it, you’ll be ready to go home – with a healthy mouth and a bright smile!
