If you’re interested in Oral Sedation, we are one of the few offices in our region that offer experienced sleep services. Having dental anxiety is perfectly understandable, but there is no reason for your fear to keep you from having a great healthy smile. Your comfort is important to us!
Sedation dentistry is really all about your comfort. We offer a few different methods of sedation, anywhere from a sedative that you can take before coming in to calm your nerves, to conscious sedation administered in the office by Dr. Learn, who has his D.O.C.S membership, or complete intravenous sedation which is performed under the care of an experienced anesthesiologist.
With complete sedation you will have no awareness of treatment during the procedure. Your pulse, blood pressure and respiration are all monitored, and the anesthetics used allow for a quick recovery. Once you are comfortable and more relaxed we still administer the necessary local anesthetic to make sure that the teeth are numb.
Dr. Learn’s DOCS (Dentist Oral Conscious Sedation) Education supports the mission of the DOCS Educations mission: to create a safe and welcoming dental experience for many people who avoid seeking dental care due to fear
