About Sedation Dentistry
Have you ever thought, “I wish my mouth and teeth could be fixed in one appointment while I’m asleep?” This can actually be pretty close to reality in many cases. Heck Family Dentistry provides multiple options when it comes to sedation. Most people are familiar with nitrous oxide sedation, and while one rarely loses consciousness with this type of sedation, it is sometimes just enough to take the anxiety away to allow the patient to be comfortable.
If because of anxiety, convenience or physical limitations it is necessary for the patient to be asleep, we can provide oral sedation or work with a nurse anesthetist to provide IV sedation so that you can literally wake up, and the work has all been completed. We have obtained all of the required certification to allow us to safely treat you or your family member in this way. We have proper monitoring devices, emergency equipment, medications and procedures. Our goal is to remove any obstacles that would prevent a healthy mouth and the best quality of life possible.
