Sedation Dentistry

How Sedation Dentistry Works

You are given a pill to take one hour prior to your dental appointment. We ask that you bring a companion who will accompany you to the office. When you arrive, you will be very drowsy. You will relax in one of our comfortable chairs where your vital signs will be monitored. After you are comfortable, our experienced clinical team will take care of your dental needs. When your treatment is completed your companion will return you home where you will continue to sleep.
