What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is where you are given a safe medication to soothe you and allow you to undergo dental treatment. At our office we offer a comfortable, pain-free experience with oral conscious sedation. This means that we will work with you and your physician to get a pill prescribed that you can take for your procedure. This pill will help you to feel calm and relaxed during your treatment and you will experience little to no discomfort from the dental procedure. The pill may make you drowsy, so we recommend having a companion to drive you to and from your treatment.

The Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

If you've avoided visiting the dentist in the past due to overwhelming fear and anxiety, you no longer have to suffer. Sedation dentistry makes your trips to the dentist less stressful. The medication you are prescribed will put you at ease, allowing your dental procedure to go swiftly and smoothly. You will no longer fear the dentist.

Your dental procedures will be over with before you know it. When you are sedated for a dental procedure, the dentist can work faster to complete the procedure since you are able to hold still. This is also helpful because it can minimize the number of trips required to finish a procedure. Over time, you will see your fears of visiting the dentist diminish.
