If you fear the dentist or suffer some level of dental anxiety, there's no need to worry any longer. At the Southern Dental Implant Center, we offer oral conscious sedation so that patients can experience a state of calm and relaxation while remaining alert and awake during treatment. Once the treatment is complete and the sedative wears off several hours later, patients have little to no memory of the procedure.
Dr. Collier: So many people have put off much-needed dental work simply due
to fear. Sedation dentistry is the perfect solution for these patients; and
even for those who just want to be guaranteed complete comfort throughout
the entirety of their procedure. At The Southern Dental Implant Center we
have mastered an art of sedation. There are a number of various techniques
that keep our patients completely out of pain, with customized care,
tailored to each person's needs and wants. Those who have put off caring
for their smile because of fear can now be at ease.
A: I think that had been where a lot of the fear had come from. But with
the sedation I was very comfortable during the procedure, and then when it
was all over I have very little memory of even having been there and just a
beautiful result that I was very, very pleased with.
B: I had never heard of this idea of this idea of conscious sedation
before, and it really was kind of miraculous. It is a process by which you
have the ability not to remember what took place during the procedure, and
it makes for a completely, at least, for me, painless procedure.
C: I wanted to be awake and he said it was very normal, that I could
actually stay awake and I did, and during the process if I said at all that
I could feel anything he'd stop and add some more anesthesia and waited.
And it was awesome.
D: The sedation was really easy, He gives you something to relax you before
you get here, and then they take you in the back. But I don't remember
anything about it. That's how good it is. It's just like, OK.
