Sedation dentistry provides a safe and comfortable experience for patients to get the care they need and want. Through the use of oral medications and proper monitoring, sedation techniques allow patients to be relaxed and anxiety-free during dental procedures.
Studies show that 30% of the population avoids the dentist due to fear. Medication taken orally at the office an hour before a procedure enables the fearful patient to be comfortable and unafraid during the appointment, often allowing for more dental work to be performed at one sitting, saving the patient visits to the office and time away from work. Dr. Chad Lyew has certification through California to perform oral conscious sedation and is a member of the Dental Organization for Conscous Sedation (DOCS).
