What is Sedation Dentistry?
If fear has kept you from coming to the dentist, sedation dentistry allows you to sleep while the work is done. Dental sedation allows for multiple procedures to be completed during a single visit.
- Dentistry while you sleep!
- Relaxed, comfortable care, in the familiar surrounding of your dental office
- No memory of the procedure
- Completely eliminate anxiety and stress
- No discomfort and save time by performing comprehensive and complete care in one visit
How Long Do The Effects of Sedation Dentistry Last?
For most patients, the effects of dental sedation last between 2-4 hours, so we require you to have someone drive you home from our office.
Conscious Sedation: Am I Really Asleep?
We call it sleep dentistry because most patients do tend to fall asleep. However, it is really a conscious sedation as you can still respond to verbal commands from the sedation dentist. Even the most apprehensive patients have been ecstatic with the results of sedation dentistry.
