Relaxation Dentistry
We understand the anxiety that some patients experience when faced with dental procedures. Dr. Herron and Dr. Farhat offer conscious sedation, sometimes called Sedation Dentistry. All body functions remain normal and the person is able to breath on their own. The patient will be awake and able to respond to commands, but will be in a state of extreme relaxation. Some degree of amnesia is common; the patient does not always remember fragments of their appointment and do not have a real sense of time passing.

Oral sedatives do not provide pain relief, so an injection of local anesthetic will also be administered.

Oral Sedation Medication
Conscious sedation is administered with an oral pill. For this we use Ativan, also known as Lorazapam, which provides a deep level of relaxation and amnesia effect. The patient will take one tablet the night before a dental procedure and one an hour before the dental appointment.
