How our Sedation Service Works

At our practice, we prioritize your comfort and strive to create a positive and stress-free dental experience through our sedation dentistry services. By customizing the sedation approach to your needs and closely monitoring your well-being, we ensure that you receive the necessary dental treatments without anxiety or discomfort.
  • Consultation and Evaluation: The first step in our sedation dentistry process is a thorough consultation and evaluation. During this visit, our dentist will discuss your dental history, any existing anxieties or concerns, and your desired level of sedation. We will also conduct a comprehensive examination to assess your oral health and determine the most suitable sedation method for your specific needs.
  • Personalized Treatment Plan: Based on the information gathered during the consultation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique circumstances. This plan will outline the recommended dental procedures and the appropriate sedation options to ensure your comfort and relaxation throughout the treatment process.
  • Pre-Sedation Preparation: Before your scheduled procedure, our team will provide you with specific instructions to prepare for sedation. This may include fasting for a certain period before the appointment or taking medication as prescribed. It is crucial to follow these instructions carefully to ensure the effectiveness and safety of the sedation.
  • Administration of Sedation: On the day of your appointment, our experienced dental professionals will administer the chosen sedation method. This can include oral sedation, where you take a prescribed medication prior to the procedure, or intravenous (IV) sedation, which is administered directly into your bloodstream. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is another option for mild sedation. Our team will closely monitor your vital signs and adjust the sedation level as needed to ensure your comfort and safety.
  • Relaxation and Treatment: Once the sedation takes effect, you will enter a relaxed and calm state while remaining conscious and able to respond to the dentist’s instructions. Our skilled dental team will proceed with the planned treatments, such as fillings, extractions, or dental implants, while ensuring your comfort and well-being throughout the process.
  • Post-Treatment Care: After the dental procedures are completed, we will closely monitor your recovery in a designated recovery area. Our team will provide post-treatment instructions and guidelines to follow, including any necessary medication or dietary restrictions. We will also schedule follow-up appointments to assess your healing progress and address any concerns you may have.
