Relaxing sedation/general anesthesia is a proven technique to:
- Provide dental care for young children

- Allow complex dental procedures to be performed efficiently
- Assist patients who may be frightened to cope with the necessary dental treatments
- As an alternative to local anesthetic
- Be cost effective
Awake or Asleep for dentistry... it is your choice.
Oral sedatives or nitrous oxide may be used at Twilight Dental Group to provide dental work for patients who are not comfortable going to sleep. While awake and in control, patients with low-levels of anxiety remain relaxed during their procedure.
Oral sedatives with nitrous oxide or IV moderate sedation are available to those patients who wish to remain responsive during their dental treatment. Under Moderate Sedation patients may or may not recall their experience.
Twilight Dental Group offers the option of sleep dentistry; patients are guided to sleep for their dental treatment and will not recall any aspect of their experience. It is the most common level of sedation we provide.
