Valium: This drug is a benzodiazepine that is used for short term anxiety attacks as well as dental sedation therapy. It works on receptors in the brain to depress the anxiety centers so that you will have the courage to get your dental work done. We can use drugs such as valium in order to sedate you and have you in and out of the chair in no time. We can also use a combination of other drugs as well in order to get you the correct level of sedation.
Versed: Versed is also a drug that is in the same class as valium. It is also a benzodiazepine drug that is able to depress the anxiety centers in the brain as well. Its use is for short term anxiety and it is highly effective in making sure that you are not anxious when you come through the door.

Intravenous therapy is a powerful and much more effective means of sedation therapy. Because the drug is directly pushed into the venous circulation, and directly into the circulatory system it has instantaneous effects on the patient. The level of the drug can also be much more effectively predicted as there are direct correlations between the amount of sedation given intravenously and the levels to be expected in the body. It is the most accurate and effective means of achieving your comfort. Let us give you the most relaxing dental experience you have ever had.
Propofol: This is a powerful anesthetic agent that is able to make you as comfortable as possible during your procedure. It is a procedure commonly used during surgeries in the hospital. It is a safe agent that can make you relaxed to the point that you will not know you had a procedure. Your smile will be perfected in an instance.
Demerol: Demerol is a medication that is used in various different dental procedures for its effectiveness. It works on opioid receptors to make your comfortable during any procedure that you may be pursuing.
Ketamine: This is an agent that is the most powerful during sedation dentistry. It is a last resort for patients who are not able to be sedated to a comfortable state. It is only to be used by dentists who are certified in sedation therapy. Our dentists are sedation dentistry certified and are able to administer this drug safely and effectively so that no matter what, you will feel no anxiety during your dental procedure.
