"I'm really happy to provide sedation dentistry to my patients because it helps those who normally would not have completed their needed dentistry because of dental anxieties. We are able to accomplish their needed treatment in a comfortable, relaxed setting... leaving them anxiety-free and with no memory of the procedure afterward." Dr. Hodgins, Orlando sedation dentistry expert
Sedation dentistry is a wonderful solution for people who are fearful of a visit to the dentist or those who really value their time and money.
Dr. Hodgins is a certified IV sedation dentist. We chose this method because it is safer, faster and more effective in producing deeper sedation giving you a more comfortable and relaxing experience.
We begin the process by doing everything possible to make you feel completely comfortable; warm blankets, reclining chair, relaxing music. We can also help to take the edge off of any anxiety you may be feeling with nitrous oxide.
IV sedation puts you into a very comfortable, sleep-like state which allows us to proceed with your treatment using local anesthetic. During the procedure vital signs such as blood pressure, blood oxygen level and heart rate, will be closely watched by Dr. Hodgins and his assistant using the latest in monitoring equipment. With IV sedation it is possible to use a reversal medication administered through the IV to bring a patient rapidly out of sedation if necessary which is why this is a safer sedation option than oral conscious sedation.
While you are relaxed and dozing we can complete years of dental work in as little as two visits...saving you both time and money. It's a great option for business people or busy moms who have little extra time to spend in the dentist chair.
90% of our patients have little or no memory of their procedure. You will simply wake up to a healthy, new, beautiful smile. There are no after-effects from the medication and we have found that our sedation patients usually have an easier recovery period.
If you've been putting off years of dental work, sedation dentistry can change your life. Please call us for a consultation; let us show you the difference sedation dentistry in Orlando or Winter Park can make.
