Sedation Dentistry

A life changing experience.

There is a lot of talk these days about Sedation Dentistry. It has become a life changing experience for many.  Millions of people avoid going to the dentist each year because of fear, anxiety, negative childhood experiences, or a bad gag reflex to name just a few.  Sedation dentistry is an alternative to traditional dental treatment. When your body gets into the anxious mode it releases hormones and chemicals that can leave your muscles tight and tired.  While sedated, your body is relaxed.  Afterward, you feel refreshed and relaxed. You can get more dentistry done in one visit making it convenient and less stressful. Sedation may be a more appropriate alternative for people who are nervous or apprehensive about dental procedures or who require complicated or lengthy treatments.

During sedation you will remain conscious (unlike general anesthesia) but you will be in a very relaxed state. Your vital signs are constantly monitored. When your visit is over you will feel refreshed and have little memory of the procedure.

If you have avoided going to the dentist because of fear, anxiety, or a negative childhood experience, consider sedation dentistry it could be a life changing experience.
