Sedation Dentistry

Midlothian Dental Center has some of the most experienced sedation dentists in Richmond, VA. Sedation dentistry is a popular option in dental treatment today. Under light sedation, you will be conscious, but unaware of the treatment. This allows Dr. Gore and Dr. Hoover, an experienced and knowledgeable member of the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, to perform potentially years of dental treatment in only one or two visits. The sedative is carefully administered to last the duration of your visit, proportional to the extent of the dental care you require. After your procedure, you will wake up refreshed  with little or no memory of the treatment. More importantly, you’ll be able to smile with confidence and pride.

The sedation treatment option is simple.  You are given a small pill to take one hour prior to your dental appointment. The medication causes drowsiness  so a companion must drive you to and from your appointment. By the time you arrive, you will be very drowsy. As soon as you arrive, a Midlothian Dental Center team member escorts you into a private room, covers you with thick, warm blankets and monitors your vital signs. A member of the staff will be with you at all times to ensure your safety and comfort throughout the entire procedure. When your treatment is completed, your companion will take you home. Once the sedation wears off, you will wake up refreshed.

Conscious Sedation

Conscious sedation is a combination of medicines to help you relax (a sedative) and to block pain (an anesthetic) during a medical or dental procedure. You will probably stay awake but may not be able to speak. The sedative is carefully administered to last the duration of your visit, proportional to the extent of the dental care you require. Conscious sedation enables you to recover quickly and return to your everyday activities soon after your procedure.

IV Sedation

Intravenous (IV) Sedation is a compound of chemicals that are carefully measured in advance, and administered through an IV in the hand or arm. You’ll lay back comfortably in the chair, and once the sedation is administered you’ll feel intense relaxation. Keep in mind that you are NOT unconscious, but rather in a deep state of relaxation. You’ll be able to respond to Dr. Gore and our nurse anesthetist, but will feel no pain and have no memory of the procedure.
