Sedation Dentistry

Dr. Attia is happy to offer Sedation dentistry to his patients up on request. Unlike general anesthesia, which is generally administered in a hospital setting, sedation dentistry is a safe and effective technique which we can provide in our dental office. Oral conscious sedation is the most common. During sedation, the patient is still conscious and breathing on their own while being very comfortable and relaxed. Some patients do fall a sleep but are still responsive to alerts, and most of the time will not remember much details from this procedure due to the medication we use. IV sedation is also available if needed allows us to perform all dental procedures while the patient is in a relaxed state and unaware that dentistry is being done. This technique is very effective for people who are excessively nervous about dental treatment If you afraid of the dentist and/or have a bad experience, please call us, we would love to listen to you and hear about your experience and provide you with the right treatment in most comfortable way.
