We’re Portland’s sedation dentistry experts and that’s why we’re called Sleep Dentistry Defined. The availability of sedation during dental appointments can have a profound effect on patients who are afraid of the dentist or avoid the dentist because of the anxiety they typically experience.

Sedation dentistry, also known as sleep dentistry, allows you to be completely relaxed during routine or major dental procedures, waking when everything is done, without the trauma that some associate with going to the dentist. This is especially useful for patients who want to have major work done, as a seven or eight hour procedure can be done while sedated, without the patient being subject to the sounds or sights of the procedure. With the extra comfort of sedation, you can have the work you need performed easily and painlessly and enjoy the beautiful smile you deserve.
