Sedation Dentistry

We understand many people “hate the dentist”. The fear of the dentist is quite common because our staff is well aware of this we offer Sedation Dentistry. Our office has been properly trained to work with fearful patients in helping them to overcome their fears. Dr. Vu and her staff can help you, but only you can make the appointment. So, please don’t hesitate to call with any questions or concerns you may have.

We offer different levels of sedation for any procedure.

Sedation dentistry for people that have had an upsetting dental experience in that past because maybe you:

  • Don’t respond well to local anesthetics
  • Have a strong gag reflex
  • Have very sensitive teeth
  • Need complex dental work
  • Can’t stand the idea of needles and shots
  • Feel uncomfortable around dental instruments, bright lights, or sounds
  • Have not been to a dentist in several years

Sedation dentistry has been designed to help you relax, feeling calm, and comfortable while your dental procedure is being completed.

Sedation dentistry is also appealing to people whose schedules don’t permit frequent visits to our office. With sedation, we can perform more work in fewer visits.

How does it work?
It all starts with a pill that you’ll take before arriving in our office, so you’ll need someone to bring you and take you home. You’ll be drowsy but awake and responsive, and you’ll remain awake throughout the process – but you’ll feel deeply relaxed and will remember little if anything about the procedure.

How long will I be in this relaxed state?
Your treatment time will vary depending on your dental needs, so your sedative will be adjusted accordingly. After your procedures, you will stay drowsy for up to four hours.
