Sedation Dentistry FAQs

Sedation DentistryComplex dental treatments, that often require six to eight appointments, can be done in as little as one! All while you relax.  You take a small pill prior to treatment, no intravenous tubes or needles. You will have little or no memory of the experience. You won't remember any sounds or smells.

Will I feel any pain?
Most patients feel no discomfort whatsoever during their treatment and feel surprisingly good afterwards.

Will I be unconscious?
No, you will be in a deeply relaxed state, and you will be responsive.

Will I be monitored?
Yes, one of our team is always with you and your vital signs are monitored during the entire visit. You are never alone.

How long will I be relaxing?
Depending on your needs, from two to six hours.

Will someone need to accompany me?
Yes, due to the sedative effects of the medication, you will need someone to drive you to our office and home again.
