How Sleep Dentistry Works
Sleep dentistry is ideal for patients who feel nervous or fearful about undergoing dental procedures. It allows these patients to receive the care they need without any undue stress; indeed, without their even being aware of the procedure as it is taking place.
Sleep Dentistry Techniques & Levels
Relaxation with Sedation
Sedation dentistry involves tranquil, mild sedation, and is ideal for mildly anxious patients. Although you will remain awake and we will rely on freezing to eliminate tooth pain, you will nonetheless experience a pleasant, comfortable, stress-free dental appointment with sedation.
These techniques produce a "barely aware - don't care" state, as well as profound comfort and zero pain. You will have little to no memory of your session. This type of sedation is a good choice for those who are comfortable with only a mild awareness of their procedures.
The term says it all. Safe, sophisticated gentle anesthesia eliminates consciousness altogether during the dental procedure. You simply sleep through it all, completely unaware. Many of our patients come to us specifically for complete sleep dental treatments.
