You'll be sedated just enough to be unaware of the treatment, as if you were relaxing. You'll wake up refreshed, with little or no memory of what was accomplished with sedation dentistry.

Because you are completely comfortable, we can do years of dental treatment in one or two visits. We can replace crowns or dentures, restore sore gums to good health, whiten yellow or stained teeth, fix a chipped tooth, and more.

How Does Sedation Dentistry Work?

Commonly Asked Questions...

Who Is A Candidate For Sedation Dentistry?

Tell me about how sedation dentistry works

We work closely with a excellent medical anesthesiologist. He makes sure that you have a pleasant experience!

With safe and proven techniques, patients receive sedative drugs which work rapidly to create a relaxed state that is maintained and monitored throughout treatment. Beyond creating an optimal environment for you, the patient, dentistry with IV Sedation also allows us to complete multiple procedures in one appointment..

An IV is started by the anesthesiologist allowing all medications for relaxation to enter your body. You will not remember or be aware of any procedures or especially “getting numb.” You breathe on your own. This is not like the hospital anesthesia where a machine breathes for you.
