Sedation

 

What if you could have all your dentistry that you have been putting off for years in the conventional dental office in one or two comfortable visits?

What if you could finally receive all of the treatment while sleeping- free of fear and pain?

We specialize in Sedation Dentistry and Sleep Dentistry, treating people with dental phobias and anxieties We offer different types of sedation dentistry. These include administering oral sedation, a pill, nitrous oxide (laughing gas), and intravenous sedation to deliver a combination of drugs. All this depends on the needs of the patient.

In this way the patient and the dentist are comfortable providing and receiving the best possible dental care-safe, and free of stress and pain.

What is Sedation Dentistry or Sleep Dentistry?

The patient is given oral medication about one hour before your appointment. The medicine puts you in a light state of sedation and you sleep thru your dental appointment. It is Safe! When you awaken your dental treatment is completed.

You need someone to drive you to and from your appointment. Once you arrive, you are allowed to rest comfortably in a warm, quiet room under a cozy blanket. During the entire time you are here, we will closely monitor you to ensure your safety.

Complex dental treatments that often require six or more appointments can be done in as little as one!


All while you sleep.

 
 
 

An estimated nine out of ten children suffer from one or more symptoms related to Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB). – JAOS, Bergersen / Stevens

 

These children experience a wide range of debilitating

SDB- related health disorders, such as:

  • ·         ADD/ADHD
  • ·         Lower IQ
  • ·         Chronic Allergies
  • ·         Aggressive Behavior
  • ·         Mouth Breathing
  • ·         Swollen Adenoids & Tonsils
  • ·         Daytime Drowsiness
  • ·         Crooked Teeth
  • ·         Restless Sleep
  • ·         Bedwetting
  • ·         Nightmares
  • ·         Dark Circles Under the Eyes
  • ·         Snoring
  • ·         Irritability
  • ·         Frequent Headaches
  • ·         Arrested Growth
  • ·         Low Grades in Math, Science, & Spelling

 

The HealthyStart® System is an oral appliance therapy that promotes natural growth and development, which addresses the root causes of SDB.  Research has shown that SDB-induced oxygen deprivation is a major contributing factor to the childhood health disorders shown above.

The HealthyStart® System has been specifically designed to promote the proper growth and development of the jaw and airway to optimize airflow and promote proper nasal breathing while straightening your child’s teeth.  As these areas develop many of the symptoms of Sleep Disordered Breathing disappear.  When kids can breathe properly, they can begin to learn, grow, and blossom into their true genetic potential … just as nature intended.

 

 

Many kids with the above health disorders are being “treated” with powerful drugs without evaluating a possible root cause.  Our office can evaluate your child and indicate if there is a breathing and sleeping issue.  Please take the sleep and speech questionnaire to make an initial evaluation of your child.  

Healthy Start not only addresses the root cause of Sleep Disorder Breathing it simultaneously straightens your child’s teeth without braces. Best of all, when treatment begins early, the perfect smiles that the HealthyStart® Appliance System creates are less likely to relapse!

 HealthyStart® creates healthier, happier kids who can breathe.  Rarely has there ever been a single appliance or system with the power to impact your child’s health in so many positive ways. As a parent, you owe it to your child to give them every chance to succeed. Call today for more information on how to help children achieve their full potential.
