Oral Sedation

What is it?

Anxious? Don't worry, we offer oral sedation! If you listen to just about any radio station these days, you've probably heard advertisers talking about the benefits of oral sedation dentistry. At Kennedy Dental Group, we have advanced training in the safe and effective administration of conscious oral sedation.

A pill before your dental work can make your trip to our office completely comfortable and anxiety-free and all with little or no memory of the visit! Conscious sedation dentistry isn't only for anxious, tense or fearful patients. Oral sedation is also particularly convenient for those patients with less flexible schedules, as the deep relaxation reached allows for more comprehensive dental care with fewer office visits. Patients who have had this unique experience say that hours seem to fly like minutes and post treatment discomfort is often completely eliminated.

Ask us about oral sedation dentistry and see if you are a candidate.

What are the benefits?

It allows you to comfortably undergo everything from a simple cleaning to extensive concerns. One of the additional benefits is that the medicine has an amnesia quality which for most patients, tends to prevent almost any memory of the visit.

* Sedation Dentistry enhances effectiveness of anesthetic.
* Sedation Dentistry decreases gagging.
* Sedation Dentistry assist in decreasing joint and muscle soreness.
* Sedation Dentistry allows more treatment to be provided in a shorter time, which could decrease total number of visits.

How long does it last?

For most patients, the effects last between 2-4 hours, so we require you to have someone drive you home.

Am I really asleep?

Most patients do tend to fall asleep, however, you can still respond to verbal commands. Even the most apprehensive patients have been ecstatic with the results.

Safety

We constantly monitor each patient with a computerized pulse oximeter, which measures heart rate, blood pressure and oxygen saturation. We also have a reversal agent on hand that reverses the effect of the medicine in less than 30 seconds. We are caring for patient's everyday using this safe comfortable and relaxing oral sedation method. It's a blessing for our patients. Please call our office to hear what our patients have to say about sedation dentistry. We are compiling a list everyday of happy, comfortable, sedation dentistry patients.
