RELAX...You're in great hands!
Nearly 50% of the population feels nervous or uncomfortable
about going to the dentist or having dental procedures done. Dr. Smith understands the importance of helping patients feel
relaxed and comfortable during dental procedures. If you feel that sedation is
necessary for your dental care, give us a call to learn more about our sedation
We offer Oral Conscious Sedation. Take a pill
one hour before your appointment and you can relax through your visit.
With oral sedation we can often complete
all your dentistry in one visit.
Oral sedation is very safe.
The pills stay in a patientís system for
several hours after the appointment, so there are few complaints of pain
after procedures are completed.
How You May Feel
Most patients remember nothing about their treatment. A few will remember a
little, usually at the end of the appointment when we are getting them ready to
go home. You will need someone to bring you to our office on the day of your
sedation appointment and you MUST have someone take you home afterwards.
Safety of Sedation
The reason that we use oral sedation is because of its safety. We use monitoring
equipment to monitor your pulse and blood pressure. Youíll be done before you
know it, completely unaware of the time passing, totally relaxed.
