Unwind and Achieve a Restful Dental Experience with Oral Sedation (Sleep Dentistry) at Dental Elements

Achieve a Dreamlike Dental Experience with Oral Sedation (Sleep Dentistry) at Dental Elements

At Dental Elements, we recognize that dental anxiety can be a significant barrier to achieving optimal oral health. To address this concern, we offer oral sedation (sleep dentistry), a safe and effective method that allows you to undergo dental procedures while in a state of deep relaxation and sleep.

What is Oral Sedation (Sleep Dentistry)?

Oral sedation, also known as sleep dentistry, involves administering a sedative medication orally, typically before your dental appointment. This medication induces a state of deep relaxation and sleep, allowing you to remain comfortable and unaware of your surroundings during dental procedures.

Benefits of Oral Sedation (Sleep Dentistry):

  • Eliminates Dental Anxiety: Oral sedation effectively alleviates dental anxiety and fear, making dental visits less stressful and more manageable.

  • Promotes Relaxation and Sleep: Oral sedation induces a state of deep relaxation and sleep, allowing you to undergo dental treatments without discomfort or apprehension.

  • Amnesia of the Procedure: You will have no memory of the dental procedure while under oral sedation, reducing anxiety and fear associated with past dental experiences.

  • Safe and Effective: Oral sedation is a safe and well-established technique when administered by experienced dental professionals.

Who Can Benefit from Oral Sedation (Sleep Dentistry)?

Oral sedation is particularly beneficial for individuals who:

  • Experience significant dental anxiety or fear

  • Require complex or lengthy dental procedures

  • Have sensitive gag reflexes

  • Have difficulty controlling their movements

  • Have a history of traumatic dental experiences

  • Prefer to sleep through their dental procedures

What to Expect During Oral Sedation (Sleep Dentistry):

  • Consultation: You will have a thorough consultation with our dentist to discuss your medical history, assess your sedation needs, and determine the appropriate dosage of sedative medication.

  • Pre-sedation Preparation: You will receive specific instructions on preparing for your oral sedation appointment, such as fasting for a certain period before the procedure and avoiding certain medications.

  • Sedation Administration: Our experienced dental team will administer the sedative medication orally, ensuring your comfort and monitoring your vital signs throughout the procedure.

  • Dental Treatment: Once you are in a state of deep relaxation and sleep, our dentist will proceed with your dental treatment, ensuring your comfort and well-being.

  • Recovery and Observation: After your procedure, you will be monitored in a comfortable recovery area until you are fully awake and ready to go home.

I had a long overdue deep cleaning, root canal/crown, AND fillings within a month. Dr. Thurman, Morgan, Kathy and staff were very attentive and kind with not ONLY the procedures and explanations but with checking up on me after the root canal. Also great at helping me figure out my insurance coverage and payments. Dental Elements is GREAT.
