Sedation Dentistry

For some, just the thought of dental visits causes fear and anxiety. Whether because of previous trauma, significant needs, or other reasons, some patients prefer to utilize care options which allow them to relax and even nap through dental treatment. 

Dr. Wolff and his team are experts in sedation dentistry.  Dr. Wollf has completed rigorous, post-doctoral training with the Doctors for Oral Conscious Sedation organization and is Oral Conscious Sedation (OCS) certified.

With OCS, a pill is taken about an hour before treatment, making the patient feel relaxed and somewhat sleepy. Upon arrival, our team takes great care of the patient and  assesses their  response to the medication.  If additional medication is needed, we administer it at the office.

Before treatment begins, our care team makes certain the OCS patient is comfortable and ready to move forward with treatment. During treatment, most patients fall into a “dozing” state, but remain responsive enough to answer our questions. Throughout the process, our care team monitors blood pressure, oxygen intake and heart rate. Once treatment is complete, a specially trained care team member stays with the patient until he or she is alert and ready to go home with a companion.

If you have put off dental visits because of fear or anxiety, we encourage you to contact our office today.  We believe our gentle approach to care and the options we provide will help you feel better and smile more.
