According to the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, 30% of the US population avoids going to the dentist because of anxiety. This all too common “dental phobia” prevents many patients from receiving the dental care they need. Don’t let anxiety keep you from getting oral care.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Oral sedation dentistry is a technique that generally uses oral medications to suppress anxiety, reduce fear, and pain, creating a better dental experience for you. Sedation or enteral sedation is defined as using a pharmacological agent for the purpose of causing anxiolysis and a depressed state of consciousness.

To put it in easy to understand terms, oral sedation dentistry is really taking one tiny pill, an hour before treatment, that puts you completely at ease and in a state of complete relaxation. That’s it!

In addition to oral sedation we also offer Intravenous Sedation. IV Sedation provides a deeper more reliable and controllable level of sedation. The medication, which is administered intravenously, is safe and works quickly and reliable. Throughout the process we’ll continually monitor your blood pressure, pulse, oxygen saturation and respiratory rates ensuring your complete comfort. You’ll remain awake during the procedure but you will be in a heightened state of relaxation.
