Sedation Dentistry

Some patients are terrified to have Dental treatment. Some patients have an exaggerated gag reflex and find it impossible to relax during dental treatment.

We use Oral Sedation procedures to provide a relaxing and anxiety-free experience for certain anxious people receiving dental treatment who have a high fear of dental treatment. It enables individuals too afraid to go to the dentist or with other issues (an exaggerated gag reflex) to receive the dental care they need while avoiding the common apprehension known as dental phobia.

Oral Sedation treatment for dentistry is now the most common technique used in the United States and Canada to quell patient fears. The technique used is easy and requires no IVs to administer.

Best of all an oral medications will be used and allowed to work for about an hour before a dental procedure. The medications usually create such a comfortable experience, that most patients do not remember the visit; it is as if they slept through the treatment.

Oral sedation dentistry maintains a level of consciousness in the patient for safety and cooperation with procedures. Sedation is a process used to establish a relaxed, easy and calm state through the procedure. Our sedative medications are usually used in conjunction with Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas) for a more pleasant dental experience.
