Sedation Services & Information:
We specialize in Sedation Dentistry and Sleep Dentistry, treating people with dental phobias and anxieties. We offer different types of sedation dentistry. These include administering oral sedation, a pill, nitrous oxide (laughing gas), and/or intravenous sedation to deliver a combination of drugs. All this depends on the needs of the patient. In this way the patient and the dentist are comfortable receiving and providing the best possible dental care — safe, and free of stress and pain.
What Is Sedation Dentistry or Sleep Dentistry?The patient (you) are given oral medication about one hour before your appointment. The medicine puts you in a light state of sedation and you safely sleep through your dental appointment. When you awaken your dental treatment is completed.
You need someone to drive you to and from your appointment. Once you arrive, you are allowed to rest comfortably in a warm, quiet room under a cozy blanket. During the entire time you are here, we will closely monitor you to ensure your safety.
The Convenience of Dental SedationComplex dental treatments that often require six or more appointments can be done in as little as one! All while you sleep.

What Is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry makes going to the dentist a dream…Sedation dentistry can put you at ease and virtually eliminates the pain associated with dental procedures. Intravenous sedation is one of several options available to significantly reduce your fears and discomfort.

Benefits of IV Sedation:
Conscious SedationDuring intravenous sedation (IV sedation), an anti-anxiety drug is administered into the bloodstream to achieve a state of "deep conscious sedation." Although you will not actually be asleep, you will enjoy a heightened state of relaxation — and probably won't remember much about the procedure afterwards. Your appointment will be a dream and hours in the chair will feel like minutes.
How It WorksIV sedation will put you at ease so you experience little to no discomfort; however, your sedation dentist will also administer a local anesthetic to ensure that you don't experience any pain. At this point in you'll be so relaxed that you'll hardly even notice.
Throughout the procedure, your breathing, heart rate and blood pressure will be closely monitored. Patients generally recover quickly, although they may feel slightly groggy immediately afterwards. IV sedation is extremely safe when delivered by a specially trained dentist or anesthesiologist like those in the Dental Relaxation network.
How Much Time?Two appointments are usually required. During your first visit, your dentist will describe the benefits and risks of IV sedation, patiently answer all of your questions and give you detailed instructions for the day of your procedure.
Before You ComeOn the day of your procedure, you will need to have another adult with you to take you home. You should not perform strenuous activities, drive a motor vehicle or drink alcohol for the rest of the day. Do not take any medications prior to or following surgery unless your dentist has approved their safety.
