RELAX...You're in great hands!
Nearly 40% of the population feels nervous or uncomfortable about going to the dentist or having dental procedures done, so much so that they put up with the pain and embarrassment of severely broken down teeth. Dr. Bowen understands the importance of helping patients feel relaxed and comfortable during dental procedures. With IV sedation dentistry administered by a board certified anesthesiologist, patients can sleep through long overdue dental work in a safe comfortable manner. For those patients with mild anxiety, an oral sedative, nitrous oxide and pain free technique may be all that is needed to complete their dental work. The sedation fee is based on an hourly rate which is due at the time of service. Extended payment plans can be arranged with Capital One. If you feel that sedation is necessary for your dental care, give us a call to learn more about our sedation dentistry.
How You May Feel After Sedation
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
During IV sedation, 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.
