Part of our world-class dental experience is helping you relax and rest easy during treatment. If the idea of dental surgery makes you or your family members apprehensive, nervous or anxious, we can help. Working together with you, we create a personalized sedation plan to help you settle in while we perform your dental surgery.
Conscious sedation focuses on treating anxiety and helping patients feel comfortable during treatment.
For more complex cases, IV sedation helps the patient rest easy during treatment.
Exparel is a non-habit forming pain management option administered during oral surgery to provide long-lasting pain relief. It can reduce or eliminate your need for opioid pain medications post-surgery.
All patients who experience dental anxiety may benefit from our personalized approach to sedation. If you or your family members have any of the following fears or concerns, please ask our team about sedation dentistry:
As board certified Periodontic specialists and highly trained oral surgeons, sedation dentistry is foundational to our world-class patient experience. We work together with each patient to determine the sedation approach that best matches the surgery and the desires of the patient.
Administered by trained professionals, sedation dentistry has been proven to be safe and effective for dental treatment. Without sedation, the patient’s blood pressure tends to rise. With sedation, studies show that surgery becomes safer by reducing blood pressure during the procedure.
Recovery time from sedation is dependent upon the method used. Because sedation causes drowsiness, we always recommend that you arrange transportation to and from your treatment. After sedation, you should not drive, drink alcohol, or operate machinery.
