Sedation Dentistry

Sleep dentistry allows dentists to help the apprehensive patient, who may have had painful dental care in the past or a traumatic experience in the dental chair, get the anxiety-free dentistry care they need pain-free we can offer all the treatments under oral and IV sedation. IV sedation is works by introducing a sedative agent through the veins putting the person almost to sleep. This is for the nervous  patients  to  reduce their anxiety and  give  them  a  more

relaxing experience.

"Sedation Dentistry" can also be done by taking a sedative tranquilizer medicine and may be supplemented by medicated air to breathe containing nitrous oxide. Instructions must be carefully   followed for "sedation dentistry" procedures because, although it is very safe, you will definitely be sedated.

Be sure someone can pick you up, drive you to the office and hold your arm as you walk into the office. You will be awake but very relaxed, you might be woozy and disoriented, so you cannot walk alone.

After your visit, you will find that you won't remember very much, even though you'll feel fine. You must be accompanied by a responsible adult who can also take you home and keep an eye on you for the next few hours. Even though you may think you feel okay, you could lose your balance and slip and fall, so be sure to take it easy for the rest of the day.

Monitoring devices, some of which evaluate breathing, blood pressure and heart rate, will be employed to help ensure the safety of the procedure.

All aspects of your medical history, including any drugs you may be taking, should be disclosed to the dentist before any dental care.
