Sedation is a safe and highly effective method of relaxation and has helped millions of people overcome their anxiety when they visit the dentist. This kind of sedation may be the key to a pleasent and comfortable dental care.
For some people, a trip to the dentist can be a traumatic and anxious event. Often, a patient will have had a negative experience in the past at a dental office, or they may harbor a fear of needles and numbness. It is quite natural to be uncomfortable, even anxious, when laying in a dental chair.
Dentistry with mild sedation is used in treatments that require a long time in the dental chair (like dental implants), in patients who have trouble controlling their movements, or in patients with fears, excessive anxiety or dental phobias. We offer oral sedation to any patient who has anxiety about their dental appointment.
With a single dose of an oral medication, we can easily and safely perform dental implant procedures while you are in a state of deep relaxation that simply relieve anxiety or put you in a state similar to sleep.
You will feel or remember very little of the procedure.
How Sedation Works
With safe and proven techniques, dental patients receive sedative drugs which work rapidly to create a relaxed state. Beyond creating an optimal environment for you, sedation dentistry also allows the doctor to complete dental implant surgery in one appointment.
It is performed in our office by a certified anesthesiologist, who will monitor your medical condition throughout all the procedure. We have many patients that have made dental anxiety a thing of the past through oral sedation.
