Feel Total Comfort with Sedation Dentistry
We want all of our patients to feel relaxed at their dental appointments. We understand that some patients have
difficulties or anxieties with certain procedures. We offer several levels of sedation dentistry to bring relief
to these patients. It reduces stress and allows for complete relaxation. Also, our practice is one of a few in
the state that is qualified to administer IV sedation. If only lighter sedation is needed, we use nitrous oxide,
often called laughing gas. For those who only need to take the edge off, Valium might be another option.
For the highest level of sedation, we work with a licensed anesthesiologist who administers the medication through
an IV. It gives us full control for an accurate level of sedation that quickly takes effect. Dr. Fairweather is
able to completely concentrate on your treatment while the anesthesiologist monitors your sedation and comfort level.
You won't remember anything during your treatment, and an hour will fly by and seem like a few minutes. This type
of sedation also works well for longer appointments in order to complete more extensive treatment at one time. When
your visit is over, you will have someone drive you home. In about an hour, you will be back to normal.
The Stabident System™
This computer-controlled system allows our dentists to numb only one single tooth, rather than a larger area, in
just a few minutes. The standard anesthesia shot takes between 8 to 12 minutes to take effect. The Stabident system
will work in only one or two minutes, is pain free, and has the same duration as a regular injection.
A Painless Injection using The Wand™ Technology
With The Wand, patients are amazed they can receive an anesthetic injection and not feel a thing! This high-tech,
computerized delivery system is the latest advancement over the 150-year-old syringe. It also provides a highly
accurate level of medication. No longer do patients need to worry about a pinch from shots.
