Relaxed Sedation Dentistry

So You No Longer Need to be afraid….Relax with Sedation Dentistry

Dental fear is a hidden phobia—the monster in the closet that no one wants to talk about. Many people are embarrassed to admit their fears and even more afraid to confront them. Often times not even loved ones are aware of their apprehension. Worse yet, these people may have never known that oral sedation dentistry was an option.

When Dr. Cook first started practicing, she was amazed to discover how many people were afraid and embarrassed to go to the dentist. They would come to Dr. Cooks’ office trembling or teary-eyed, with their hearts pounding in their chests like a drum. After sitting down with countless patients all experiencing the same symptoms, Dr. Cook recognized that something needed to be done to help them. That’s when she decided to obtain training in safe and effective oral sedation dentistry.

Dr. Cook is now offering sedation dentistry. Dr. Cook and her team received their training from DOCS Education and is one of the only local dentists to offer this valuable and highly effective treatment.

While these methods and medications cannot make fear magically disappear, they can give patients the confidence and peace-of-mind to experience dental procedures in a whole new way. Hours pass like mere minutes and more dentistry can be performed in a single visit because the dentist is able to work more efficiently. It is a win-win for both the patient and the dentist.


Now Scheduling Consultation Appointments


Sedation Information

• Sedation will provide you a way of getting your dental work done while totally relaxed and completely comfortable.
• Sedation is achieved with the use of various oral sedatives (i.e. triazolam, midazolam, lorazepam and hydroxyzine) and nitrous oxide or what is commonly called laughing gas.
• Sedation is NOT general anesthesia.
• Sedation allows you to be conscious and responsive.
• You will be very sleepy and relaxed.
• You will be able to verbalize your needs and wants.
• You will be monitored during your entire appointment with blood pressure and pulse oximetry.
• Someone will be with you at all times.
• The sedatives used are amnesiacs – you will have little or no memory of the experience.
• The sedatives used relax your nervous system so you will feel little discomfort and will probably not need any pain medication post-operatively.


Financial Information

• The doctors will provide you with a comprehensive treatment plan and will have advised you concerning fees and scheduling.
• Your total fee for each sedation appointment is due at least 2 weeks prior to your appointment.
• If the fee is not paid 2 weeks in advance your appointment
