We can make you visit comfortable for you. We have different levels of sedation available:
Nitrous oxide or laughing gas is used for low levels of apprehension. You will be awake but not care what is going on. It is immediately reversible with oxygen and you can drive yourself home.
Oral sedation is used for moderate apprehension. You will need to discuss your health history with Dr. Kreg so he can choose a pill that is right for you. The benefit of oral sedation is that your are very relaxed, commonly don't remember anything, and are drowsy. You must have someone drive you here and home. People often say this was their "Best visit ever!" using oral sedation.
IV sedation is used for higher levels of apprehension in an adult or if there is a large amount of work to be done on a child after review of your health history. Ron Keller is a CRNA and provides this service in our office. During this procedure you will be more deeply sedated and not remember anything of the procedure. You must have someone drive you home. You may visit Ron on his website and sleepinsafety.com.
During your initial visit with Dr. Kreg or Dr. Luong we will discuss in depth your options with you. There is no reason in dentistry today for anything to be difficult for you. You will find our caring and knowledgeable staff extremely comforting as well.
