Conscious Sedation – “Sleep Dentistry”
Imagine not being afraid of a dentist appointment. Or how about being able to accomplish all your dental care in as little as one appointment. This is what Conscious Sedation Dentistry can do for you. You will be able to smile with confidence and chew your food without pain. If you’ve been putting off dental work for years, conscious sedation can change your life.
Conscious sedation dentistry has been used safely for over 30 years with millions of dental procedures. Before starting any dental treatments, Dr. Klim will review your medical history and explain how conscious sedation can work for you. Dr. Klim wants you to feel confident about moving forward with dental care.
On the day of your appointment, you’ll take medication – in pill form and then a companion will take you to the office. Our experienced clinical team members will make certain that you’re relaxed and completely comfortable as they monitor you very closely while you are sedated. Many patients feel NO DISCOMFORT whatsoever during and after treatment, and have little or no memory of the visit.
