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.
We’re Portland’s sedation dentistry experts.
It’s why we’re called Sleep Dentistry Defined! If you avoid the dentist because of the discomfort you usually experience, sedation dentistry can help you restore your dental health without the anxiety you usually feel at the dentist!
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.
The Benefits of Sleep Dentistry
There’s no need to fret about an upcoming appointment or major procedure if you know you don’t have to endure the sights and sounds of it! Dr. Lampee and our anesthesiologists are wonderful with dental-phobic patients – they’re experts at making sure you are at ease the moment you walk into our office.
All the sedation techniques we use at Sleep Dentistry Defined are safe and FDA approved. They give my most dental-phobic patients an amazing option for fixing major dental issues without the anxiety usually associated with a dentist visit. You don’t need to put off restoring your health any longer! Sedation dentistry is also especially useful for major procedures that require patients to be in the office for six or eight hours.
Makes Visits a Breeze
Even some minor procedures like root canals or crowns can make patients uneasy. That’s why our focus on patient comfort extends to our waiting room, the tools we use, the specialized training that our hygienists and anesthesiologists receive. Knowing you can be sedated for a procedure often makes the decision to have dental work done much easier.
“Had my first appointment for implants on 05/14. Dr. Lampee and the staff are so kind that it made it very comfortable for me. I can’t say that I remember a lot of it—conscious sedation is awesome!”
“It was great. Once I fell asleep I felt nothing. Everybody is just fantastic there.”
“From the moment I walked into the office, I felt welcomed. I had never been a patient of Dr. Lampee and he treated me like I had seen him for years. I have a lot of anxiety going to the dentist, with him cracking jokes and his relaxed manner, the whole experience put me at ease.”
