Sedation Dentists

If you are someone who cringes at the sounds in dental offices and has a fear of needles, someone who has sensitive teeth or someone who is immune to the numbing effects of typical freezing techniques you might be a candidate for sedation dentists.

Sedation dentists allows patients to become drowsy and, in most cases, sleep right through their cosmetic dental surgery procedures. The actual process involves

patients taking an analgesic or sedative about an hour before their procedure. [Pullout:

] When the medication kicks in the patient usually becomes extremely relaxed and drifts into a sleep-like state.

When they become coherent after surgery most patients have no memory of their procedure at all.

If you are ready to embrace healthy teeth and gums, relax, with sedation dentists you will drift away into dreamland and wake up with a sparkling, new smile.

Choosing A Sedation Dentist

Inquire about the type of monitoring equipment that is used while performing a procedure with sedation including: a pulse oximeter, oxygen equipment and reversal medication agents that aid in case of an adverse reaction.

Inquire about the dentist's participation in organizations that provide ongoing education for sedation dentistry and other related procedures such as the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology, or the American Society of Dental Anesthesiologists.

Review the Informed Consent form for details about the procedure, equipment, advantages, and risks associated with the treatment. All experienced sedation dentists will have a comprehensive form and will be willing to spend time with you to discuss any aspect of sedation dentistry.
