Sedation Dentistry

A relaxing alternative is available if you are frightened of dental treatment

Dr. Williams is very experienced in dealing with patients who are fearful of dental treatment. Even if you have experienced uncomfortable or painful dental treatment in the past, we can use Relaxation (Oral Conscious Sedation) Dentistry to help you relax and comfortably obtain the treatment that you need.

With Oral Conscious Sedation dentistry, you will relax, as if you are sleeping, and be comfortable throughout your treatment. You'll be sedated just enough to be relaxed and in control, but without experiencing any pain.

Sedation Dentistry is ideal if you:

  • Are afraid of needles

  • Have had bad experiences in the past with a dentist or in a dental office

  • Have dental phobias

  • Have toothaches or headaches

  • Have missing teeth

  • Fear the pain associated with dentistry

  • Hate drills or the smell of the dental office

  • Suffer from TMJ syndrome

  • Have old silver fillings that need to be replaced

  • Have serious tooth decay that is affecting your overall health

  • Experience constant oral pain

  • Can’t get numb with anesthesia

  • Or simply anyone who wants an anxiety-free and pain-free experience

Oral Conscious Sedation to make you comfortable

With Oral Conscious Sedation, a pill is taken about an hour before your treatment, which will make you feel relaxed and somewhat sleepy. You will, however, remain awake, and will be able to interact with and respond to the dentist. The sedative effects will last through your dental treatment.

Patients that have had bad dental experiences in the past are amazed that they no longer fear going to the dentist because they can be comfortable and relaxed during treatment. Even patients with a moderate to severe gag reflex will find that their gag response is gone when they are sedated. Oral Conscious Sedation makes possible dental treatment that was previously impossible for many patients.
