We want you to be as comfortable as possible during your dental treatment, so we are pleased to offer our patients the option of comfortable, safe, and effective sedation dentistry. With sedation dentistry, patients can be completely relaxed during treatment, in comfort, without anxiety.
Sedation dentistry refers to various techniques that can help patients achieve a relaxed state. Sedation dentistry does not mean the use of general anesthesia, however. The drugs used in sedation dentistry render a patient completely at ease, but conscious, so that basic treatments or advanced therapies can be performed with the patient able to provide responses.
Oral conscious sedation refers to the use of a liquid or pill prior to the dental visit. This will put the patient in that relaxed state. Patients will need to arrange for transportation to and from the appointment as they will not be in fit state to operate a vehicle.
IV sedation refers to the use of sedation drugs administered intravenously at the practice. As with oral conscious sedation, patients will need to arrange for transportation to and from the appointment in order to ensure their safety.
