Frequently Asked Questions about Sedation Dentistry
Will I be asleep during sedation dentistry?
This depends on your form of Sedation. You will be able to choose from Oral Sedation which will place you in a relaxed, tranquil state or IV Sedation where you will be sleeping comfortably.
Why do people choose Sedation Dentistry?
Some people elect Sedation Dentistry because they have sensitive teeth or exaggerated gag reflexes, while others have limited time for a visit or want to avoid discomfort and anxiety during their visit.
Will I be able to drive to or from my dentist appointment?
No. You will be taking tranquilizing medications, and such drugs will impede your ability to drive. Therefore, ask a friend or family member for help with a ride home after the appointment.
Is Sedation Dentistry safe?
Absolutely. You will be monitored at all times by Dr. Shifman who has been trained and certified to make sure that you are not in any danger. You will never be alone and the procedure is safe.
