Tell me more about sedation dentistry!

IT REALLY WORKS! You really can totally relax throughout your dental appointment.
You take a small pill prior to treatment, no intravenous tubes or needles.
You will have little or minimal memory of the experience. You won’t remember any sounds or smells.

You will be sedated for up to five to six hours after taking the pills. The time you are sedated will vary depending on your needed treatment.

Complex dental treatments that often require six to eight appointments, can be done in as little as one! All while you are sedated.

People who have difficulty getting numb will find that sedation dentistry eliminates this problem.

Sedation dentistry is a safe way to reduce the fatigue of extended dental treatment requiring long visits.

Will I be unconscious?
No, you will be in a very relaxed state, and you will be responsive.

How long will I be sedated?
Depending on your needs, from two to six hours.

Will someone need to accompany me?
Yes, due to the sedative effects of the medication, you will need someone to drive you to our office and home again.

Can the sedation be reversed?
Yes, we can reverse the sedation if required.
