Have you been avoiding the dentist for years or decades?
Do you have past bad memories at the dentist that you would rather forget?
We understand. We now offer a solution.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Sit back, relax, and enjoy our patient amenities and entertainment while we treat you to excellent dentistry. Oral conscious sedation will soothe your nerves and give you a euphoric feeling that will last throughout your visit. You will walk out of our office with a stunning and healthy smile, but without memories of the sights or sounds of your appointment.
What is Conscious Sedation?
When you need a little extra help feeling relaxed or you need a more complicated treatment, we may recommend oral conscious sedation. Oral sedation is a pill that you chew that will help you feel comfortable and relaxed for an extended period of time.
You will be conscious during your appointment with oral sedation, but your body will feel relaxed and often sleepy. Dr. Bowman will still be able to communicate with you to ensure you are feeling okay. You will need a friend or family member to drive you to and from your appointment; you can’t drive safely by yourself.
How does oral conscious sedation work? When you come see Dr. Bowman for a consultation, he will prescribe the anti-anxiety pill that is right for you. You’ll take the pill shortly before your appointment, and your anxiety will ebb away.
Although oral conscious sedation patients do not usually fall asleep, they may feel as if they are waking up after their procedure. If a visit lasts a few hours, it may only feel like a few minutes to the sedation dentistry patient. The patient may not have any memory of their appointment after it is over.
Dental Sedation Is Meant to Help You
Sedation dentistry is a great option for patients who:
Put off getting necessary dental work done because of an overwhelming fear of going to the dentist.
Are anxious about the possible pain and discomfort involved with an extensive dental procedure.
Require multiple dental procedures performed (multiple fillings/root canals, implants, etc).
Have a sensitive gag reflex and have difficulties keeping their mouth open for extended periods of time.
Have TMJ pain or tooth sensitivity that makes procedures difficult
Don’t let dental fears hinder your health and smile potential a moment longer!
