Am I a candidate for sedation dentistry?
You may be a candidate for dental sedation if you suffer from dental anxiety, dental phobia, or a condition that renders you unable to control your movements.

What is sleep dentistry?
Sleep dentistry is another name for sedation dentistry. With the use of a simple sedative pill, you can be asleep and easily spend 3, 4, 5 or more totally comfortable hours in the dental chair and wake up not even remembering you were there! This form of sedation is officially called "conscious sedation" since you can be aroused very easily to go to the bathroom, or have a drink.

Is dental sedation safe?
A study performed by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research found that dental sedation is safe if administered in the recommended doses by trained sedation dentists.

Does it hurt? Are there any needles?
Patients who have been sedated and have extensive dental treatment usually experience little discomfort the next day. Because your reflexes are still functioning normally, we still use local anesthesia - you just won't remember it!

How long will I be asleep?
It depends on your needs, but usually ranges from two to six hours.

Are there any side effects?
Drowsiness the day of your appointment is to be expected. Some feel slight nausea, but that is due to the fact that they have not eaten. Normally, patients feel fine after eating and taking in some fluids.

Will I be able to drive?
You should not drive until 24 hours after your dentist appointment. We require that someone bring you to our office in the morning and take you home after your appointment
