Who Can Benefit From Sleep Dentistry?
Many people avoid getting the dental treatment they so desperately need because of high anxiety at the dentist’s office. You are an ideal candidate for sleep dentistry if you have experienced any of the following:
Types of Sedation We Offer
Enjoy Total Relaxation at the Dentist’s Office
You simply take a pill about an hour before your appointment that makes you drowsy, and you will be completely relaxed during the procedure. You will need someone to drive you to and from the office.
Sedation drugs are administered intravenously before your procedure. Dr. Amalfitano can control exactly how much sedative is administered into the bloodstream taking the guesswork out of sedation.
A colorless, odorless gas is inhaled. Dr. Amalfitano can control the amount of sedative minute to minute and just minutes after the gas is stopped the patient will feel completely normal and able to drive home.
A numbing agent is injected into your cheeks and gums. This method is also used to eliminate pain in emergency situations.
