Some patients suffer anxiety over any kind of dental work. Just the idea of sitting in the dental chair is enough. We have a solution to relieve your fear. Conscious sedation dentistry is an easy way to relax and have your treatments taken care of without the concerns.
It is a simple matter of taking one pill an hour before your appointment. By the time you are sitting in the dental chair, you are feeling very relaxed. You reach a level of sedation where you are unaware of the work being performed but still capable of answering questions when asked. Your vital signs are monitored during the treatment. After completion of your dental work, someone drives you home. You are completely alert within an hour or so.
It's important to know you maintain a level of consciousness, as some patients worry about lack of control. Oral sedation provides a happy medium of the ability to relax combined with enough awareness to be able to speak. You simply won't have any anxiety.
When only lighter sedation is needed, we offer laughing gas, or nitrous oxide, to keep a patient comfortable throughout treatment. This is a complimentary benefit we offer to any patient who desires it.
