General & Cosmetic Dentist in Washington D.C.
Conscious Sedation Dentistry
in Washington DC
Dr. Jeffrey Singer and his staff will help make your visit relaxing and enjoyable with your Sedation Dentistry visit. Conscious Sedation is a very deep relaxation. You still speak and respond to questions. Your level of consciousness retains the patient’s ability to independently respond appropriately to physical stimulation and verbal communication. (The patient can talk to the dentist and assistants and the patient breathes on their own.)
With conscious sedation, the medication has a very profound amnesic effect – you will not remember the drive to the office, procedures, or the trip back home. You are sedated just enough to be unaware of treatment, as if you were snoozing. You will wake up refreshed, with little or no memory of what was accomplished. Sedation Dentistry allows more involved dental treatments and sixty to eighty percent reduction of dental visits is the norm; and you sleep comfortably.
RELAXATION or CONSCIOUS SEDATION DENTISTRY will be PAIN FREE.
