Talk to Us
If you hate coming to the dentist talk to us about your concerns. Sedation is a great technique that can help. We’ll recommend the type of anesthesia or sedation that’s right for you.
Overcome Dental Anxiety
Fear shouldn’t stand between you and your dental treatment. From mild concern to extreme anxiety, speak up! We can help.
For long procedures which require you to have your mouth open wide, sedation will keep you comfortable while the time flies by. For procedures which require IV sedation, time will pass in an instant. Sedation has an amnesiac effect, you don’t remember what happened.
Tailored for Your Needs
Do you have a sensitive gag reflex? Chronic restlessness? Does local freezing just not work for you? Sedation can be used strategically to make sure proper treatment is available to everyone.
Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a candidate for sedation dentistry?
If you find yourself anxious and nervous about receiving dental work, sedation dentistry will likely be a good fit for you. With that said, rest assured that we talk to each and every one of our patients to understand their medical history to decide if sedation dentistry is the right option for you.
What if I am being nervous about being put to sleep?
Most sedation dentistry options don’t actually involve patients being put to sleep. Rather sedation dentistry allows patients to feel extremely relaxed. You may not even remember any of the procedure once it’s over. At our practice, we are here to guide you every step of the way and ensure that you are calm and at ease.
Will I need someone to drive me home if I receive sedation dentistry.
When sedation dentistry is involved we always stress the importance of having a friend or family member pick you up. It is important to let the sedation wear off and for your body to rest before returning to your regular routine.
How long does it take for sedation to wear off?
If you are going to be participating in sedation dentistry we would advise taking the day off to recover. A good rule of thumb is to set aside 24-hours to return back to your regular routine.
Is Dental Sedation covered by my insurance?
You must speak with your insurance provider to find out if they cover sedation dentistry. After your initial consultation, we can provide you with a quote to take to your insurance provider.
