From dental phobia to dental surgery, there are many reasons patients elect or need conscious dental sedation. We believe that dental work does not have to be anxiety-producing or needlessly painful. Our goal is to perform dental procedures with minimal pain, discomfort and anxiety for the patient.
There are different types of modalities and products used for conscious sedation. In our office we utilize oral sedation. If deeper sedation is required we can refer our patients to a sedation specialist. A decision upon which type of sedation dentistry is right for you will be reached in accordance with your unique dental needs. All concerns will be discussed with you prior to your appointment and during your visits as needed.
Sedation dentistry is endorsed by the American Dental Association and is an effective way to make many patients comfortable during their dental visit. We are specially trained and are certified by our State Board of Dental Examiners to use sedation dentistry in our office. Before using a sedative or anesthetic, we will do a full workup to find out about any medications or medical treatments you are receiving. Before administering any sedative or anesthetic, we will explain the process of sedation and review your pre- and post-sedation instructions.
