IV Sedation/Non IV Sedation
With Sedation Dentistry, you don't have to be afraid anymore!
Imagine not being afraid to go to the dentist anymore and being able to accomplish all of your dental care in as little as one appointment. If you've been putting off years of dental work, Sedation Dentistry can change your life! You will be able to smile with confidence.
Enjoy the benefits of good health and a beautiful smile!
Oral Sedation Dentistry protocols have been used safely for over 30 years, with millions of dental procedures. We want you to feel confident about going forward with a new healthy smile. Before we start any treatment, we review your medical history and explain how Sedation Dentistry can work for you.
In addition to Oral Sedation Dentistry, we now offer IV conscious sedation in our office. The benefit of IV sedation over Oral Sedation using pills, is that is a much more predictable way of sedating patients. IV conscious sedation bypasses the digestive system and allows the distribution of medication directly to the bloodstream leading to better and more predictable results. This allows for quicker procedures with better results in a safe and comfortable atmosphere
On the day of your appointment, a trusted friend or loved one will bring you to our office. Our experienced dental team will make sure that you are completely relaxed and comfortable and we will monitor you very closely while you are sedated. Most patients feel NO DISCOMFORT whatsoever during and after treatment, and have little to no memory of the visit.
You can reverse years of neglect in just a few hours!
With Sedation Dentistry, most of your dental care can be completed in one or two visits. We can often do extensive treatment with just a couple visits, including:
- Creating a new smile with porcelain veneers
- Whitening yellow or stained teeth
- Fixed chipped or damaged teeth
- Replace crowns or dentures
- Restore sore gums to good health
