Patient Comfort and Sedation
At our practice, you don’t have to be nervous about getting the dental care you need. Our doctors and staff are gentle and friendly. We will listen to your concerns, explain your procedures in detail and take the time to answer any questions you have.
Because your comfort is a top priority for us, we offer an array of amenities to help you relax, including blankets, pillows, music, TVs and a coffee station with drinks. We also provide sedation options
If you are feeling anxious, sedation can help. Through the use of sedation, our doctors have helped many very fearful patients comfortably get the treatment they needed.
We offer both oral and intravenous (IV) sedation. Our doctors will help you identify what type of sedation will work best for you.
Please note: sedation patients will need to be driven to and from their appointment and must have a responsible adult remain with them during the appointment and recovery. This person will need to stay with the patient when they take their tablets, during surgery and for 24 hours after surgery.
With oral sedation, you will be given an oral medication prior to treatment that will cause you to feel relaxed during your procedure. The oral sedative does not cause sleep—you will be aware of your surroundings and able to follow instructions and answer questions during your procedure.
For an even deeper relaxation, Dr. Bhasin is certified to administer IV sedation. With IV sedation, you will be put into a twilight sleep-like state and can be easily awoken as needed. Dr. Bhasin closely monitors the IV sedation during treatment, and he can precisely adjust and control its levels, making IV sedation ideal for longer procedures. Most patients have no memory of undergoing their procedure with IV sedation.
