The days of painful, anxiety filled dentist visits can be a thing of the past. Sedation dentistry helps people who are afraid or uncomfortable get through their procedures with ease. Let us walk you through our process.
At the consultation we will gather information regarding your health history and discuss your treatment goals. X-rays will be taken and a complete treatment plan will be presented.At this appointment, we will determine if you are a good candidate for sedation.
During the pre-op appointment, we will begin preparing by taking all your vital signs, answer any and all questions and fill out paperwork. You will be given a prescription for a sedative to take an hour before your next appointment to guarantee you are at ease upon arrival.
By the time of arrival with your required companion, the medication you were given at your pre-op appointment will begin to take effect. At this moment, the sedation team will escort you to the operation room and record any and all vital signs. Once the full effect of the medication has been reached, we will determine whether any additional medication is required. During your appointment, you will be monitored and carefully attended to until the procedure is complete.
Once your appointment is complete, your companion will take you home and stay with you until you are completely recovered from your sedation medication.
The majority of patients feel very little discomfort or residual effects the following day. The doctor will follow-up within 24hrs to check-up on you, and answer any and all questions you may have. Relax and enjoy your new smile.
