Sedation Dentistry

Sedation Dentistry … a reason to dream

With sedation dentistry you can regain your health and have the fabulous smile you always wanted

You don’t have to be afraid to go to the dentist anymore

Hours will seem like minutes

Sedation medications have an amnesic effect. That means you’ll have very little, if any, memory of your visit

Recovery is a dream

When your treatment is complete you may be a bit wobbly, so your companion will take you home and stay with you until you’re recovered. You’ll be amazed at how much can be accomplished in such a seemingly short period of time, while you were totally relaxed, and completely comfortable. And best of all, the very next day you will feel fantastic.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is a candidate for sedation?

.Those who need to get more dentistry done in fewer visits

. Fearful or anxious patients wanting little or no memory of the visit

. Anyone with a severe gag reflex, chronic or acute jaw soreness or physical limitations

. People who have difficulty getting numb or simply want a more relaxing experience

Will I be unconscious?

No, but you will be in a deep state of relaxation. You will still be able to breathe and communicate, but you will not feel any pain or anxiety. You may not even remember most of the procedure afterwards.

How long will I be sedated?

Sedation can last from about 2-6 hours depending on the strength of sedative you are given and how long your procedure takes.

Will I be monitored?

Yes, at all times during your sedation someone from our staff will be with you. We also monitor your vitals to make sure they remain at a normal level. Safety is of the utmost importance to us.

Are there any long term effects of sedation?

No. You will feel a little groggy and “out of it” after some forms of sedation, but after a few hours you will feel like yourself again. You will need to have someone drive you home from your appointment in these cases and staying with you.

What procedures can be performed under sedation?

Just about any procedure that we do regularly.

How many appointments will I need to complete my dental work?

In most cases this only takes two appointments. It depends of the complexity of your treatment. The first appointment will be a consultation to check your health history and make sure you are a candidate for sedation, and the next to perform the necessary procedures. This could be done in one appointment, but may require a follow up visit.

Will my insurance cover sedation?

In most cases it will not be covered by your insurance provider. We will review your insurance coverage and let you know if it is covered or not. If it is not covered, we will let you know the cost and, if necessary, we can put together a financing plan for you.
