What is involved in having dental work done under sedation?

Before your appointment, Dr. Gray will sit down with you and review your health history, discuss the treatment to be provided, and provide detailed instructions for before and after your sedation dentistry appointment.  You will also receive prescriptions for the medications needed before and during the appointment.  You will need someone to drive you to and from your sedation appointment and to stay with you after your appointment.

During your dental procedure, you will be monitored for heart rhythm, pulse, oxygen saturation, blood pressure, and respiration (breathing).  Dr. Gray monitors more vital signs than required by dental regulations to ensure you remain safe as well as comfortable.  You will be capable of responding to commands during the procedure but in most cases will sleep during the procedure and not remember anything about the dental work.  When the procedure is finished, we bring you out of the sedated state, evaluate your vital signs, awareness, and dexterity, and when you meet certain criteria, your ride can bring you home.  Dr. Gray will give you a call that evening to answer any questions and address any concerns you may have.
