RELAX...You're in great hands!
Nearly 50% of the population feels nervous or uncomfortable about going to the dentist or having dental procedures done.
Dr. Blackmore understands the importance of helping patients feel relaxed and comfortable during dental procedures. If you feel that sedation is necessary for your dental care, give us a call to learn more about our sedation dentistry.
If you require general anesthesia, we have a Board Certified Anesthesiologist who administers anesthesia in our office so that you can receive the dental treatment you need without the anxiety.
We also offer Oral Conscious Sedation. With oral conscious sedation, you will simply take a pill one hour before your appointment so that you can relax or sleep through your visit.
With oral sedation we can often complete all your dentistry in one visit.
Oral sedation is very safe.
The pills stay in a patient’s system for several hours after the appointment, so there are few complaints of pain after procedures are completed.
How You May Feel
Most patients remember nothing about their treatment. A few will remember a little, usually at the end of the appointment when we are getting them ready to go home. You will need someone to bring you to our office on the day of your sedation appointment and you MUST have someone take you home afterwards.
Safety of Sedation
The reason that we use oral sedation is because of its safety. We use monitoring equipment to monitor your pulse and blood pressure. You’ll be done before you know it, completely unaware of the time passing, totally relaxed.
