WERE SOME OF YOUR PREVIOUS dental experiences a nightmare? That will never happen at our office! We are pleased to offer new safe oral dental sedation techniques mean that you can have dental treatments done quickly with little or no discomfort. If you are nervous or fearful about dental treatment, sedation can help relax you, making your experience more pleasant and pain free.

Conscious oral sedation allows us to calm the natural fears that so many people endure facing dental treatment. The process involves taking a sedative about an hour before your procedure. When the medication kicks in you will find yourself beginning to feel extremely relaxed and will drift into a just-before-sleep-like state. And when you become coherent after treatment, you will most likely retain no memory of your time with us at all.

  • STEP 1: PREPARING FOR YOUR SEDATION VISIT. We'll give you a prescription for a sedative to take the night before your appointment, guaranteeing a good night's sleep and that you will wake up relaxed.
  • STEP 2: ARRIVING FOR TREATMENT. Your companion will bring you to the office, and additional medications will be provided to relax you even further. You will be able to communicate with us normally, yet time will feel non-existent and you will be completely relaxed and in control.
  • STEP 3: GOING HOME. Your companion will take you home and stay with you until you have completely recovered from your sedation medication.
  • STEP 4: THE NEXT DAY. Most patients feel no discomfort or residual effects from their visit, and your teeth will be healthy and your smile beautiful!
We've found that patients who make the switch to sedation rarely go back to the "old way" of anxious visits, and that over time, even the most fearful begin to lose some of their anxiety. In the end, it's a win-win for everyone because we're able to provide you with the quality care you deserve, and you'll be able to maintain a healthy and functional smile.
