What is sedation dentistry?
Sleep dentistry, also known as sedation dentistry, is a term used to describe various methods and techniques that can be implemented for you so that your dental visit is easy, as well as relaxing.
Is sedation dentistry safe?
Absolutely! Sedation dentistry methods have been used for many years now. The techniques we use are in compliance with the guidelines and standards set by The American Dental Association (ADA).
This is like having dentistry done while you sleep. IV sedation can be accomplished safely and conveniently in our office by a licensed anesthesiologist. Patients most benefit from IV sedation when they are medically compromised, physically & mentally disabled, have high anxiety & fear, have local anesthetic allergies, have hyperactive gag reflex or desire to be asleep during the dental procedure.
A consultation appointment is needed for discussion and preparation prior to the procedure appointment.
