Sedation Dentistry

Most forms of dental sedation will leave you drowsy but conscious and able to voluntarily move and speak. Dental sedation will put you into a deeply relaxed state. You may find that time passes faster, and you may not even remember parts of the procedure when it is over, but you will be conscious the entire time.

You should plan to spend the rest of the day at home relaxing after you have sedation dentistry. If you opt for nitrous oxide, you will feel normal within a few minutes and can resume your regular schedule.

For most adults with no serious health issues, sedation dentistry is perfectly safe. We will review your medical history to determine if sedation dentistry is an option. You will be closely monitored throughout your visit to ensure you are safe and comfortable during sedation. Some conditions may prevent certain forms of sedation dentistry, but other options may exist. Contact us for an evaluation.
