What is Sedation Dentistry?

It’s a secret most people don’t know. It’s almost like having someone go to your dental appointments for you. Sometimes you won’t remember the treatment. You won’t fear the experience and may be more likely to stay current on routine and essential dental treatment. When you don’t miss your dental appointments, you look and feel your best. Our team administers safe, commonly-used sedation. The sedative can be administered by inhaling through your nose. 

You won’t go to sleep as you might with general anesthesia, which carries a higher risk. You’re always conscious. You’ll be aware of what is happening. You have the ability to respond to the dental team as they monitor you. They’ll routinely check to confirm you’re comfortable. 

There are generally three categories of sedation: light, moderate, and deep. Sedation dentistry often includes moderate conscious sedation for routine dental treatment such as:

  • Dental cleaning
  • Cavity filling
  • Root canals


Is Sedation Dentistry Safe for Everyone?

We use safe, industry-standard sedatives. Almost everyone can benefit from our services. Sedation dentistry may be safer because the dental team monitors you during treatment. It’s less stressful on your body and can prevent anxiety, rising blood pressure, and high heart rate.
