Effortless Endurance

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
