Oral Sedation (Sleep Dentistry)

Oral Sedation DOCS logoSedation dentistry is the perfect answer for anyone whose anxiety about going to the dentist keeps them from enjoying better dental health.  

Anxiety is perfectly understandable.  Everyone experiences it at one level or another, but today there is no reason for anxiety and fear to keep you from having a great smile and improved dental health.  

Sedation dentistry is really all about comfort.  It can start with topical and local anesthesia, completely numbing the area to be treated.  As necessary, “conscious sedation” can be applied, ranging from an oral sedative to aid in calming your nerves to complete intravenous anesthesia under the care of an experienced anesthesiologist.
