Our skill and knowledge in delivering exemplary sedation dentistry allows us to make dramatic improvements to your oral health. However, we recognize that those talents are far less valuable if we cannot perform each procedure in a pain-free and soothing manner. That’s why we have worked tirelessly to provide you with an experience that is not only clinically superior, but also comfortable and relaxing.
We offer the following pain management and sedation options, which can be combined if necessary, to make your visit with us more pleasant:
Anesthetics are used to “numb” the gums and teeth in certain areas of the mouth. Local anesthetics block sensations such as pain, preventing you from experiencing any discomfort as your treatment is being performed.
A mild level of sedation can be achieved with the use of oral medications. A safe dosage of these medications can be administered at the start of the procedure to diminish anxiety and further reduce any sensation of pain. Oral sedation is not designed to induce sleep, but rather to ensure that you are relaxed and carefree during your appointment.
Administering sedatives directly into the bloodstream is a valuable and effective option for many patients. The dosage and type of medication can be controlled throughout your procedure to safely maintain a deep level of relaxation. IV sedation is fast-acting, allowing even the most fearful patient to fall asleep in minutes, producing a mild amnesia effect in which patients are unable to recall the sights and sounds of the procedure.
Prior to the day of your treatment, your options for sedation will be reviewed. Our team will make sure that you are well-informed and confident about your decision. For your safety, you must be accompanied by an adult driver, and it is advised that you avoid driving for 24 hours after you have been sedated.
