Since 2001, our certified sedation dentists have been utilizing sleep dentistry to treat patients with dental anxiety in Portland and surrounding communities. Our practice evolved with the priority of helping patients with various degrees of dental fear and anxiety. The vast majority of our patients exhibit some form of dental anxiety. Our patients helped us develop a deep appreciation and understanding of dental fear and its impact on their lives.
What Is Sleep Dentistry?
Sedation, also known as sleep dentistry, is an effective way to help you regain healthy, beautiful teeth and overcome your dental fears.
Types of Sedation
At our Portland, Oregon office, we offer various options in sleep dentistry and sedation to accommodate the needs of our patients based on their level of anxiety or fear, including:
- Nitrous oxide – for patients with mild dental anxiety
- Oral conscious sedation – for patients with mild to moderate anxiety
- Light or deep I.V. sedation – for severely phobic or special needs patients
- General anesthesia – for severely phobic or special needs patients
In some cases, we may utilize a combination of both oral and IV sedation. A licensed anesthesiologist administers general anesthesia at our office. Visit our sedation dentistry page to learn more about the options.
We offer you a free sleep dentistry consultation in our Portland office, including a heart-to-heart talk, a physical exam, and x-rays. Call us to request an appointment, or schedule an appointment online.
