Patients with Limited Time
Complex dental treatments that often require multiple appointments can often be done in as little as one or two! All while you sleep.
Dentistry utilizing anesthesia or sedation is a safe way to reduce the fatigue of extended dental treatment requiring long visits.
Many patients spend half or even a whole day having their dentistry completed with anesthesia. Many times, more than one doctor or specialist is treating the patient. The patient is not aware of anything!
- You will have little or no memory of the experience.
- You won't remember any sounds or smells.
How Does it Work?
Anesthesia is administered by a combination of a breathing mask and medications. As we give more medication, the patient goes through different states of relaxation. The patient can choose to only have nitrous oxide (commonly called laughing gas) for a very relaxed state. However, the patient is still awake and aware of his surroundings.
As we give medications, the patient becomes more relaxed where he may think he is sleeping but actually does not remember being awake. As we give more medication, the patient gently slips into a state of general anesthesia where he is completely asleep and totally unaware of his surroundings.
