Oral Sedation

With Sedation Dentistry, you don’t have to be afraid to go to the dentist anymore.  You can experience Sedation Dentistry’s relaxed, easy state where dentistry can be accomplished in just a few visits, in the most comfortable way possible.

Hours will seem like minutes.  Sedation medications have an amnesic effect.  That means you’ll have very little, if any, memory of the sights, smells or sounds of your visit.  When treatment is complete, you may be a bit wobbly, so your companion will take you home and stay with you until you’re recovered.  You’ll be amazed at how much can be accomplished in such a seemingly short period of time, while you were totally relaxed, and completely comfortable.  And best of all, the very next day you will feel fantastic.

Whether it’s a broken tooth that needs to be fixed, yellow teeth that need to be whitened, missing teeth that need to be replaced, or pain that needs to be eliminated, with Sedation Dentistry you can regain your health and have the fabulous smile you always wanted.  At Christopher Chan Dentistry, our team will work with you to maximize your insurance benefits and make convenient financial arrangements that will be as comfortable as Sedation Dentistry.

Here’s How it Works:

Step 1:  Making your first appointment.  This is difficult for many anxious people, so we try to make this as easy as possible.

Step 2:   Welcoming visit.  We gather information regarding your health and discuss with you your wants and desire.  If you’re comfortable, we’ll take x-rays and look in your mouth.  But you will never be judged or embarrassed.

Step 3:  Preparing for your sedation visit.  We’ll give you a prescription for a sedative to take the night before your first appointment to guarantee a good night’s sleep and to make sure you wake up relaxed.

Step 4:  Arriving for Treatment.  Your companion will bring you to the office.  Additional medications will be provided to create the ultimate in relaxation.  Your experienced sedation team will monitor you throughout your entire visit.

Step 5:  Going home with your new smile.  Your companion will take you home and stay with you until you’re completely recovered from your sedation medication.

Step 6:  The next day.  Most patients feel no discomfort or residual effects from the dental visit and you’ll be thrilled with all the compliments you will get.
