Sedation

Why We Use Sedation

Our office’s goal is to provide patients with the very best of periodontal and implant surgical care and service.  This entails not merely ensuring patients receive technically excellent periodontal treatment, but encompasses a more holistic view of each patient’s entire experience.  It is not uncommon when patients undergo extensive periodontal surgical procedures that there exist some measure of anxiety and apprehension.  Sedation has several important benefits.  Firstly, sedation has a calming effect that enables you to feel comfortable.  Secondly, sedation can elevate one’s pain threshold to enable minor dental procedures to be performed often without the use of local anesthetic (freezing).

Dr. Novack is proud that his clinic is licensed to safely provide the full range of sedation options including intravenous (IV) sedation for our patients.
