We know how challenging going to the dentist can be for some people due to anxiety over shots,
drilling, and procedures. We want you to be comfortable in our care, and we can make that happen
for you with conscious sedation dentistry. Going to the dentist becomes so easy, because with
this type of sedation, you won’t even remember your treatment.
By simply taking one pill an hour before your appointment time, you will begin to relax. As you sit in the dental chair, you gradually progress to a significant level of calmness. You are not unconscious, just unaware of the procedure. You are still aware enough to respond to any questions the doctor may ask. Your vital signs will be monitored during the procedure and when it is completed, someone drives you home. In about an hour, you are completely normal.
This type of sedation also works well for those who can’t get numb with regular anesthesia. And for those who don’t have the time for multiple visits to complete their dental work, conscious sedation makes possible one longer appointment to take care of all the work that needs to be performed.
We also offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) for situations that require lighter sedation.
