About Sedation Dentistry
What is “Sedation Dentistry?” Dr. Bernstein administers safe, commonly used sedatives, either intravenously (I.V. Sedation) or with sedative tablets (Oral Sedation).
Prior to your appointment, Dr. Bernstein will ask you some important questions about your health and he will do a thorough examination of your mouth, including necessary x-rays.
Once the I.V. Sedation or Oral Sedation is administered to you, you will be kept warm and comfortable throughout your appointment and your vital signs will be checked continuously. While you are sedated, you will be thoroughly numbed and all your dental work will be completed. When you recover, you will remember little–if anything–about your treatment.
“Sedation Dentistry” has been used safely in millions of dental procedures. Any dental procedure can be completed while you are sedated and most people choose to take care of everything in as little as 1-2 appointments. Even people who are afraid of cleanings and cosmetic dentistry can benefit from “sedation dentistry.” Imagine waking up with the beautiful new smile you have always wanted!
