The Sedation Dental Care Standard
Physicians all over the world have been treating their patients using sedation for over 50 years. It is nothing new for patients to be sedated for operations on knees, feet, wrists, ears, noses, or practically anything else.
Dr. Phillip N. Greer has fulfilled all of these sedation requirements and have also participated in additional training. With our required and additional sedation and emergency training we will make your personalized sedation safe and comfortable. You wouldn't think of having an ear operation or a nose operation without sedation; however, it is acceptable to endure time-consuming, strenuous, noisy, and uncomfortable procedures on the most sensitive, personal part of the body (the mouth) with no sedation. Many patients that are hard to numb, have high gag reflex or very sensitive teeth, attempt to get dental work done without sedation. As a result, some patients have had very unpleasant appointments and avoid further treatment.
How You Will Feel
As you can read in our Patient Testimonials, our patients' perception of this conscious sedation technique are, they feel that they have slept through the appointment. We most commonly hear, "I remember taking some pills and the next thing I remember is waking up with my teeth fixed." Most patients remember nothing about their treatment. A few will remember a little, usually at the end of the appointment when we are getting them ready to go home or making bite adjustments.. You will need someone to bring you to our office on the day of your sedation appointment and you MUST have someone take you home afterwards.
Sedation Dentistry for the Fearful
Dental phobia is a real, often overwhelming reality for thousands of people. Negative previous dental experiences, fear of needles or drills, and severe gag refluxes are just some of the reasons people feel extreme anxiety when thinking about visiting the dentist.

Not only will our staff treat you with delicacy and care, but IV sedation will allow you to experience dentistry in a whole new way.
