Sedation Dentistry

Concept Dental is pleased to be able to offer our patients the option of Sedation Dentistry. We often have fearful, anxiety-ridden patients who quite frankly do not like the sights, sound or smells associated with their dental visits.

Sedation dentistry is a safe, effective method in which our dentist, Dr. Taylor Berry, can make our patient's dental treatment anxiety free.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is a safe and effective way in which many of our "fearful” patients can eliminate the stress of their dental treatment. Our dentist, Dr. Taylor Berry has several methods in which he will be able to sedate his patients including oral medication, nitrous oxide, and IV sedation. He will thoroughly discuss which sedation option will be ideal which sedation option will be ideal for your particular circumstance.

Is Sedation right for me?

Sedation Dentistry is a viable choice for any patient who chooses an anxiety free dental appointment. Many patients choose this method for these reasons:

  • Fearful of the dentist
  • Previous dental experience was negative
  • Patients who have difficulty with sights, sounds and smells of their dental treatment
  • Having difficulty getting numb
  • Need/want extensive dental treatment with limited appointments
  • Have a bad gag reflex
  • Patients who fear needles and shots

What does Sedation Dentistry feel like?

Patients often describe that they don’t remember anything with respect to their dental appointment, sort of a selective "dental amnesia". Many patients describe it as a "dream experience".

What happens after my appointment?

Our dentist will keep you in the office until he feels you are ready to go home. You will be tired and your driver (usually a family member or friend) will then take you home to relax. Due to the effects of your sedation medication, you will not be allowed to drive. You may still feel the effects of the medication and possibly sleep the rest of the day away. An adult will need to remain with you until the medication wears off. The next day will be a normal one with little or no memory of your previous days dental treatment.

Is this safe?

Dr. Berry is highly trained and experienced in this dental specialty. He has additional training and credentials to allow practicing Sedation Dentistry. Our patient's vitals are monitored closely by the dentist throughout the dental appointment and therefore is extremely safe and is an effective choice for many of our patients.
