We are pleased to offer our patients the option of comfortable and safe sedation dentistry. Would you like to have no memory of the treatment you had yesterday?
Patients who benefit from sedation dentistry have:
- Fear or anxiety about being at the dentist
- A hard time sitting still for long periods of time
- A hard time getting and staying numb from dental anesthetic
- BENEFITS OF SEDATION DENTISTRY
- Little memory of the treatment performed
- No sense of time while under sedation
- No anxiety during treatment
Patients who have undergone a procedure using sedation dentistry will tell you it is a simple, relaxing way to experience dentistry.
I AM NERVOUS ABOUT BEING UNCONSCIOUS. IS THIS SAFE?
We use mild sedation techniques in our office. It is administered orally. You remain awake but relaxed and somewhat sleepy through the procedure and breathe on your own, but you will feel a great sense of relaxation. Patients typically recover from sedation within a few hours after the procedure is complete.
It is required that patients who receive conscious sedation have a parent, spouse, or friend accompany them to the appointments because it can take several hours for the sedative to wear off and driving is unsafe and not allowed. You must be monitored by someone for the rest of the day.
At your complimentary consultation appointment the entire process will be explained including costs, if you are interested.
Drug Free Solution
We are proud to offer patients a new, drug free solution that helps relieve dental pain and anxiety, at no extra cost to our patients. The product is called OperaVR, and instead of using drugs to calm dental patients’ fears, it uses technology, harnessing the power of virtual reality to both immerse patients in calming environments and relieve them of their discomfort.
When asked about the experience, one patient said, “I hate seeing tools go in, and wondering what’s happening…within two minutes of putting the headset on, I totally lost track of where I was. When the girl tapped me and told me the visit was over, I didn’t believe her; it had been over 40 minutes."
