Everyone can benefit from Sedation Dentistry. Over 35 million Americans have some level of anxiety when it comes to going to the dentist. We understand that your fears may have kept you from a dentist, but there is no need to feel embarrassed. We are not here to judge you; we are here to help you and encourage you so that you can have the confidence a beautiful smile can bring.
Oral Sedation Dentistry protocols have been used safely for over 30 years with millions of dental procedures. Before starting any treatments, Dr. Patel will review your medical history and explain how Sedation Dentistry can work for you.
Most patients feel no discomfort whatsoever during their treatment and feel surprisingly good afterward. You’ll receive just enough sedation so that you’ll be completely unaware of the treatment, as you would if you were asleep. At the end of the treatment, you’ll have little or no memory of your dental visit. You will feel just fine. For your safety, we do require that you have a family member or friend drive you home. We’ll review your insurance coverage and, if necessary, make financial arrangements to ensure you get the dental care you need. Before starting any treatment, we review your medical history, and we monitor you very closely while you’re under sedation.
We understand your fears, anxieties and medical needs.
Our Treatments Include:
- Injections you cannot see or feel
