Sedation dentistry is a safe and effective way to take the stress out of dental work. It is an excellent option for high-fear patients, who otherwise might not receive dental care at all. It is also becoming increasingly popular among patients who are simply seeking a more pleasant and convenient dental experience. Sedation dentistry can offer the ability to get more treatment done in a single appointment.

What is dentistry sedation?

Sedation dentistry is also called sleep dentistry, although you will not actually go to sleep. Dental sedation results in a state of relaxation, and reduced awareness. It may be used for adults in minor or major restorative or cosmetic work.

What does it involve?

We use conscious oral sedation, you will be provided with a gentle, yet effective prescription sedative. As it takes some time for the sedation to take effect, the doctor will give you instructions as to the exact time the sedative should be taken. It will be necessary for a companion to drive you to and from the office. You are relaxed, and possibly drowsy, when you arrive for the appointment. The doctor may provide additional sedative, dependent upon the circumstances. Our friendly team will make you feel at home in our comfortable office.

You can listen to music or watch movies while Dr. Suh completes your dental work. It will be over before you know it! After your appointment, the effects of sedation will gradually fade away. You will need to take the rest of the day off work, and arrange transportation home.
