As long as there have been dentists, there have been those that delay and neglect their oral health due to fear; enduring unnecessary discomfort and pain rather than visit the dentist office. If this sounds familiar, Conscious Sedation Dentistry may be right for you.
Sedation dentistry has been around in one form or another since the mid-1800s when William T.G. Morton administered ether compound to a patient. Sedation dentistry has, luckily, evolved into a relaxing and comfortable option for those that fear dental visits.
Through the use of medication, we pride ourselves on offering our patients state of the art care, in a comfortable and relaxed environment. We tailor the level of Conscious Sedation Dentistry based on each patient’s need and level of anxiety. Best of all, we can perform a wide range of dental procedures in a single visit!
It’s important to discuss your dental fears with Dr. Kussman as we have many options to ensure you get the care you need in as comfortable a manner as possible.
Light Sedation – Relaxing while allowing you to remain awake and alert.
Moderate Sedation – Relaxed and feeling sleepy and less alert, but awake.
Deep Sedation – Relaxed to the point of ‘sleep’, or barely awake.
After the Procedure
Patients report little to no memory of their procedure after the fact allowing many to address issues they might previously have ignored.
We are dedicated to providing you with best possible care available and Conscious Sedation allows us to complete many procedures in the shortest amount of time. We encourage you to contact our office with any questions and get started on the road to optimum oral health today.
