Is Dental Sedation Right for Me?
Dental sedation is for anyone who has:
• Very sensitive teeth
• Very sensitive gums and oral tissues
• Low pain threshold (even "little" things hurt)
• Haven't been to the dentist for 5 years or longer
• Complex dental problems
• Embarrassment about the condition of their teeth
• Limited time to complete dental care
Dental sedation is for people who...
• Hate going to the dentist
• Hate needles and shots
• Hate the smell and noises of dentistry
• Have had negative dental experiences
• Are nervous, fearful or dread dental care
• Want to get their dentistry done all at once!
• Want to have no memory of dental procedures!
How Does Dental Sedation Work?
With our technique of oral sedation you should feel no fear, no dread and no pain. Nothing
begins until total comfort is fully achieved.
You are given a pill to take at home, one hour before your appointment. Your companion will
bring you to our office. Upon arriving you'll be seated, your vital signs checked and monitored
by pulseoximitry. Usually another pill is given at this time. When full, complete comfort and
sedation is achieved, then your work begins.
Why Should I Consider Dental Sedation?
Do you have ongoing, unresolved dental problems? Do you
have trouble finding time to see your dentist? Have you been
putting it off for a while... or for a long time? Extensive,
complex dental problems evolve rapidly. Procedures which
typically take between six to eight appointments can be
completed in as little as one visit! With dental sedation, year’s worth of dental neglect can be
overcome in one or two visits... wakeup with little or no memory of what was done.
What Medication is Used? How Safe is it?
Our technique of sedation uses the sedative Triazolam in the lowest dose known to achieve light,
conscious sedation. Your vital signs stay normal. You can "snooze" all the way throughout your
appointment and yet remain responsive and cooperative at all times. The sedation medicine can
be reversed simply and immediately.
Our technique of dental sedation really works! You can "snooze" all the way through your dental
appointment...You will awaken refreshed with little or no memory of what was done. It is safe
and proven 100% successful (in our office) in over 250 cases.
Whether your appointment is long or short you'll wake up refreshed with little or no memory of
