Sedation Dentistry

Sedation at the Dentist's Office

Sedation dentistry is a wonderful solution for those afraid of the dentist in Idaho Falls, have fears about dental procedures, have a high gag reflex, very sensitive teeth or need extensive dental work. Sedation Dentistry has been called twilight dentistry and also “sleep dentistry” because you feel so relaxed, sometimes you even fall asleep. This form of sedation dentistry is designed to relax you so that you have little or no memory of your visit to the dentist, and lie comfortably while Dr. Anderson, your Idaho Falls cosmetic dentist, completes any necessary dental work.

Alleviated Dental Fears

You will be amazed at how much dental work can be accomplished while you are sedated. Regular dental work that may require four to six visits can be done in one visit. Dr. Anderson, your Idaho Falls sedation dentist, can replace broken crowns, repair chipped or damaged teeth, fix bridges, heal painful gums, whiten discolored teeth and many more services at our Idaho Falls dental practice. Sedation dentistry is a safe way to reduce the fatigue of extended dental treatment that requires a long visit.

There’s no need to be embarrassed about your teeth anymore. Schedule a visit with Premier Dental Care, in Idaho Falls, and will take care of your dental needs in one to two visits.

Frequently asked questions about Sedation Dentistry

Will I be unconscious?

No, you will be very relaxed, and possibly could fall asleep, but you will be responsive, with little or no memory of the dental work.

Will I feel pain or discomfort?

Most of our patients feel no discomfort or pain during the dental procedure, and are surprised when told the dental work is done and their visit is over.

How long will I be sedated?

Depending on what dental work is done, approximately two to six hours. Time moves very fast when you use sedation dentistry and many patients say they feel as if they just sat down, when told the procedures are complete.

Can I drive myself home after sedation dentistry?

No. Due to the effects of sedation dentistry, it is best if you have someone drive you to the dental appointment and home after the procedure.

Am I monitored during sedation dentistry?

Yes, Dr. Anderson and his team monitors you at all times.
