Sedation Dentistry

Lose your fear of treatment with “Sleep Dentistry”

Medication to help you relax or even sleep during dental procedures for painless dental care

Sedation dentistry enables patients who may have a low pain threshold, very sensitive teeth, a gag reflex, or moderate-to-severe anxiety the ability to undergo more advanced procedures for teeth and gum health. At Sharon Cobham DMD, we use a Board certified Medical and Dental anesthesiologists to administer an IV sedation that puts you to sleep safely and comfortably, and provides for the ultimate painless dental care.

About Sedation Dentistry

With the help of Sedation Dentistry, Dr. Cobham can create a deep level of relaxation and contentment for patients that will help you receive dental care without anxiety.

What is Sedation Dentistry or “Sleep Dentistry”?

Sedation dentistry, sometimes called “Sleep Dentistry,” is a safe, gentle option used to help patients relax while they are having dental treatment. Medication will be used but you usually remain awake, unless you opt for a general anesthetic which will make you sleep. 

Dr. Cobham will discuss the sedation options with you so that you can choose the one you prefer and which the doctor feels is best suited to your circumstances:

A low level of sedation: you will feel completely relaxed but will not be asleep.

Moderate sedation: you will feel more relaxed, even drowsy and although not fully asleep, you may not remember much afterward.

As well as being sedated, Dr. Cobham will still apply a local anesthetic into your gum so that you will not feel any pain while he works on your teeth.

What are the benefits of Sedation Dentistry?

Being sedated while you have dental work completed brings with it many benefits. Your anxiety will be relieved, you will be less aware or totally unaware of the procedure being carried out and your fear will be a thing of the past.

Who should consider Sedation Dentistry?

If the thought of dental treatment fills you with dread, then sedation dentistry is well worth considering. Whether you have a phobia or something less, by allowing your dentist to sedate you, dental treatment can be carried out quickly and efficiently. Talk to your dentist about sedation dentistry if you have problems with any of the following:

A fear of dentists
Low pain threshold
Very sensitive teeth
A gag reflex that causes problems during treatment
Need to have a vast amount of work carried out
