Sedation

Are you one of the 45 million Americans who are missing out on routine dental cleanings, check-ups and necessary dental work because anxiety about or fears of the dentist are keeping you away?


Wake up to a healthy, beautiful smile with amazingly comfortable conscious sedation dentistry.

Oral Sedation protocols have been used safely for 30 years. Our doctors will review your medical history and monitor you closely while under sedation.

Some patients' greatest anxiety is keeping their mouth open, but with the sedation, their awareness and memory of the procedure is completely blocked out.

Frequently Asked Sedation Dentistry Questions

Below we've listed a few of the common questions people ask us about Sedation Dentistry.

Q: Will I be "unconscious" like with General Anesthesia?
A: No. You will be experiencing conscious sedation. You will have full control of bodily functions and reflexes. We also have the ability to bring you in and out of sedation as required. You can respond and communicate should the need arise.

Q: Can I drive or work for the rest of the day?
A: We recommend that you spend the remainder of the day relaxing and taking some time for yourself. Do not do any strenuous work and have a friend or family member with you until the sedation has fully worn off.

Q: Will I really be totally relaxed?
A: Yes! You'll be virtually unaware of the treatment... and very relaxed.

Q: Will I remember anything?
A: By the end of the treatment most of the time you'll have little or no memory of the actual procedure.

Q: Will I feel any pain?
A: Patients experience no discomfort whatsoever during treatment and feel surprisingly good afterwards.
