We are able to apply light sedation to patients to alleviate anxiety and calm the mind WITHOUT any needles. The patient relaxes in a sleepy, but conscious, state as the work their dental work is done. Often times without the patient even being aware that anything has happened. Our staff works with each patient to determine the level and method of sedation required, with patient health, safety, and comfort always being our primary concerns.
Who Can Benefit
Sedation is not commonly recommended for patients who do not normally mind standard dental procedures because of the added time and expense.
However, sedation can be perfect for patients who are extremely anxious about dentistry, maybe even to the point of putting off needed dental work. Patients with extensive work to be done and very young patients are also good candidates for sedation dentistry. Sedation gives the patient peace of mind while giving the dentist freedom to use the most efficient techniques, without concern about worrying or frightening the patient. Work is often done more quickly with less pain afterward.
Once the patient is thoroughly sedated at the level required for the procedure and patient needs, the procedure is completed. Sedation is maintained throughout the procedure and the patient is allowed to wake and recover in a calm and welcoming environment once the work is complete.
Each patient is unique. We will tailor our approach to meet your emotional and physical needs. We work with methods that exclude the use of needles to make it as comfortable as possible. Each of our staff is thoroughly trained and educated. We use protocols and techniques that have been proven safe with millions of patients worldwide.
