Then you are not alone. The American Dental Association estimates that
approximately 40% to 50% of the population avoids going to the dentist for this reason.
Fear is not a factor of age, sex, economics or race. If you have anxieties about going to
a dentist, or have sensitive teeth, hate needles, have a bad gag reflex or limited time to
go to the dentist, Sedation/Sleep Dentistry may be right for you.
Sedation/Sleep Dentistry places you in a cozy state of total relaxation.
You will have little or no memory of the experience and no discomfort at all.
We won't start your treatment until you are completely comfortable. Feel free to ask for
sedation to eliminate your anxieties about dental care.
By taking a prescribed sedative an hour before your appointment you will already be relaxed when you arrive at our office.
You must be accompanied to and from the appointment by a friend or loved one. Depending on your individual needs, you will be
relaxed and sedated for a short or long visit. This may allow treatment normally requiring six or eight visits to be accomplished in as little as one.
Sedation/Sleep Dentistry is a very safe and effective way to provide complex dental care with the greatest degree of comfort to adult patients
who have anxieties and fears about their dental care.
No, you will be in a state of light conscious sedation. You will be responsive to verbal directions.
Yes, one of our team is always with you, and your vital signs are monitored during the entire visit.
