Oral Conscious Dental Sedation

When undergoing oral conscious sedation, patients will be instructed to take a sedative at a certain time before their appointment begins. An escort who will bring you both to and from your appointment is required. Once the effects have begun, patients should feel very relaxed. They may not even remember much about the actual treatment once it’s finished, which is ideal.

Sleep Dentistry

If you require more significant sedation for your dental procedures, our team can refer you to specialists who can provide advanced sedation techniques called "sleep dentistry." This approach involves the administration of sedatives and pain-relieving drugs through an intravenous route, inducing a dream-like state of relaxation. Upon awakening, patients often feel as if only a few minutes have passed. It is important to arrange for a trusted escort to drive you home after the procedure and to closely monitor you until the effects of the sedation have completely worn off.
