Sedation Dentistry

We offer various sedation options for patients who might be nervous or concerned about treatment. We have treated the most fearful patients comfortably and successfully.

As a trained sedation dentist, Dr. Carr has a variety of protocols available to customize to each patient. So even if you have a unique medical condition, there still may be options. A number of medications that can be taken by mouth have been developed especially for these purposes, subjected to rigorous research and testing, are safe, and have been used for decades. Some of these can even help you remember little of the visit, preventing the sounds and smells from lingering in your thoughts. Other medications sometimes used in sedation protocols include antihistamines and insomnia medications, which aid in creating a relaxing and calm experience.

Dental sedation can offer:

  • Patient relaxation
  • Increased comfort
  • Movement control
  • Patient co-operation
  • Control of gag reflex
  • Little or no memory of treatment
  • Time saving – Fewer appointments needed
