We understand the fears and concerns some of our patients experience regarding their necessary dental treatments. We’ve taken steps to assist these patients by offering the option of sedation dentistry.
Sedation dentistry is ideal for patients who feel they need a little extra help relaxing. In many cases, sedation dentistry means that patients leave with little or no memory of the dental procedure and virtually no post-operative soreness. With a dose of medication, we can make you very comfortable for any procedure that you might need.
During oral conscious sedation, defined as a minimally depressed level of consciousness, patients actually maintain their own airway and reflexes, which means they can respond to physical and verbal stimuli. Sometimes incorrectly referred to as sleep dentistry, sedation dentistry lets our patients enter a state of deep relaxation, but they can answer our questions or fulfill our requests during treatment.
Our office stays in complete compliance with state and federal regulations that govern oral conscious sedation, so rest assured that your well-being is our number one concern. At your consultation appointment, our dentists will review the treatment plan, and we will monitor your progress every step of the way with the very latest in medical and dental technology. Dr. Browder and our team stay up-to-date with the latest techniques to make oral conscious sedation a safe, pleasant experience. In addition to following all state and federal regulations, Dr. Browder and our staff also maintain an active membership in DOCS, the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation.
