Is Dental Fear Holding You Back? Consider Sedation Dentistry

Are You…

  • In pain especially when you eat?
  • Delaying treatment you need and want?
  • Scared, even terrified, to pick up the phone to schedule?
  • Someone who has trouble with gagging or getting numb?
  • Having trouble finding someone you can trust?
  • Looking to smile again with confidence?

Time Will Fly By During Your Visit

Fortunately, sedation medications have an amnesic effect. That means you’ll have very little, if any, memory of the sights, smells or sounds of your visit.

We Will Work With Your Budget

We’ll work with you to maximize your insurance benefits and make convenient financial arrangements that will be as comfortable as sedation dentistry.

Here’s How It Works

Step 1 – Schedule Appointment
Scheduling your first appointment. Congratulations! This is a huge step.
This is very difficult for many anxious people, so we try to make this as easy as possible.

Step 2 – Welcome Visit
We gather information regarding your health and discuss with you your wants and desires. If you’re comfortable, we’ll take x-rays and look in your mouth. But you will never be judged or embarrassed.

Step 3 – Prepare For Sedation Visit
We’ll give you a prescription for a sedation medication to be taken 2 hours before your first appointment. We will also give you a list of clear instructions on how to prepare for your first appointment.

Step 4 – Arrive For Treatment
Your companion will bring you to the office. Additional medications will be provided to create the ultimate in relaxation. Your experienced sedation team will safely monitor you throughout your entire visit.

Step 5 – Head Home
Going home with your oral health improved. Your companion will take you home and stay with you until you’re completely recovered from your sedation medication.

Step 6 – The Next Day
Most patients feel no discomfort or residual effects from the dental visit and you’ll be thrilled with all the compliments you will get.
