Sleep sedation is a safe, comfortable way to have your teeth taken care of. With sedation dentistry, as it's commonly called, you won't feel pain or discomfort...you may not even remember having your teeth worked on.
Sleep sedation is not like general anesthesia, which is extreme and unnecessary for smaller dental procedures. Sedation dentistry is also referred to as "oral conscious sedation". We will prescribe a pill to take an hour before your appointment, and then an additional pill(s) once you arrive...depending on your level of anxiety.
Your heart rate and oxygen levels are carefully monitored throughout the procedure.
