Benefits of Dental Sedation:

Pain Relief: Dr. Nugent will use local anesthesia to get the area completely numb. However, the sedation medications do have an analgesic effect and help create a profound level of pain relief.

You Maintain Alertness: Most patients feel groggy or sleepy. In fact, most patients will go to sleep during the treatment. But don’t worry, we will not tell anyone if you snore and you will remain conscious and alert enough to communicate with us if you need too. For example, if you are cold you can tell us and we will put a blanket on you.

Safe and Effective: Dental sedation is extremely safe. The sedation medications act quickly and leave your system rapidly. During your treatment you will on a monitoring machine that will display your blood pressure, pulse and oxygen saturation.

Reduces Discomfort: Dental Sedation helps relax you and reduces muscle tension and soreness. It also “compresses time,” and you will think your visit is much shorter than it really is.

Improves the Quality of Care: Because you are not fearful and are anxiety free, Dr. Nugent can concentrate on delivering high quality care and work more efficiently all the while you are comfortable
