If you are interested in sedation, please watch the video below which explains sedation and interviews patients who have gone through the sedation process.

Sedation Dentistry Ė You No Longer Have to Be Anxious

Patients no longer have to be anxious of the dentist. Getting the treatment you need can be done easily while you are totally relaxed and comfortable.

Oral sedation has many benefits that make getting your dentistry possible. Being sedated using oral medications means there are no IV needles. While you do not actually sleep during treatment, you will be sedated just enough to make you totally relaxed and at ease. One of the best parts is that by the next day, most people remember little-to-nothing of the time they spent in the dental chair. Gone are memories of the sights, sounds, and smells of the office that are often so traumatizing.

With sedation dentistry, time seems to pass very quickly so hours feel like minutes. Itís a great option if you need a large amount of dental care completed at one time. Oral sedation enables your dentist to work more efficiently and complete more treatment in fewer visits, reducing four or five appointments to just one or two.

Many dental procedures can be completed with the help of sedation dentistry, including crown work, routine extractions, dentures, filling cavities, gum care, tooth whitening, bonding, hygiene, even root canals! It IS possible for you to smile with confidence.


After you have completed a new patient exam and health history, we will schedule a consultation with you and Dr. Droege where you will decide on a treatment plan thatís right for you. He will select the best oral sedation medications and protocol to meet your individual needs. Sometimes a pill is given to take the night before the appointment and/or one hour prior. You will arrive (with your companion) at the office already feeling relaxed, maybe even drowsy. Once there, Dr. Droege will decide whether or not to administer more medication.

Since the purpose of oral sedation dentistry is to make you as comfortable as possible, youíll be encouraged to come to your appointment wearing loose, comfortable clothing. Youíll be covered in a thick, warm blanket to relax with while youíre waiting for treatment to begin.
