Sedation Dentistry

Do you fear dental work? Dentistry does not have to be painful - or frightening.

Sedation dentistry allows you to be deeply relaxed while your dental work is completed. You will still be conscious during dental sedation, but unaware of the pain, unpleasant tastes, noises, and smells associated with dental work.

It's important to know that a visit to Dr. Tim Meyer can be a positive experience, even when treatment is necessary. Millions of Americans, nearly 30%, are afraid of the dentist. They avoid dental care at all costs, even when they are in pain or discomfort. But it no longer has to be that way. Dr. Tim Meyer offers safe, effective, and comfortable treatments to anxious and fearful patients.

Perhaps the greatest advantage of sedation dentistry is its efficiency. Because dental sedation makes you comfortable, dental work that usually takes six appointments to complete can be done in just one visit. This makes dental sedation a perfect option for someone with a busy schedule.

The process of sedation dentistry is surprisingly simple. An hour before your appointment, you will take a small pill called Triazolam. This medicine is a safe, quick-acting sedative with virtually no side effects. Because it makes you drowsy, though, you will need to be driven to your appointment by someone. Upon arrival, you'll be comfortably situated in a room where your vitals will be monitored. Once you are completely relaxed and covered with a warm blanket, sedation dentist Dr. Tim Meyer and his caring team will take care of your dental needs. After your procedure is completed then your companion will drive you home so you can recover peacefully.
