Sedation Dentistry Lets You Sleep Through Your Procedure…
…catch up on years of dental neglect in one or two visits!
Sedation dentistry or sleep dentistry eliminates all your excuses for not going to the dentist. In fact, Shamblott Family Dentistry is a leading Twin Cities sleep dentistry office. With the benefits of sleep dentistry, we take the stress out of a regular trip to the dentist.
If this is a dental emergency, please call the dentist at 952-935-5599 to be seen as soon as possible.
“I have spent way too long away from getting good dental care out of fear. Having good pain relief options puts an end to that. I really appreciate it!”
Benefits of sleep dentistry…
- You won’t feel a thing with sedation dentistry or sleep dentistry. In fact, sleep dentistry relaxes you enough that you’ll be completely unaware that you are at a dentist office. Yet you should be able to go to work the next day.
- You can catch up on years of putting off trips to the dentist in as little as one or two visits. When everything is done, you’ll wake up with little or no memory of the procedure.
- For those with busy schedules, sleep dentistry allows you to take care of complex treatments that usually require up to eight separate appointments in just one single trip to the dentist.
In other words, sedation dentistry or sleep dentistry saves you time! Another bonus is that sleep dentistry reduces the fatigue associated with ongoing dental treatments.
Explanation of sleep dentistry…
When you arrive at our Hopkins office, the first step is to attach monitors to you so that we can measure your breathing, blood pressure, heart rate and EKG.
Next, a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) will start an IV that allows the medications to slowly enter your body. Our patients receive sedative drugs that work rapidly to create a deeply relaxed state that is maintained – and monitored – throughout the procedure.
IV sedation with a CRNA is more predictable and safer then oral sleep dentistry.
