Q. Will I feel any pain during my Sedation Dentistry appointment?
A. Most patients feel no discomfort whatsoever during their treatment and feel surprisingly good afterwards.
Q. Will I be totally relaxed during my Sedation Dentistry appointment?
A. With most Sedation Dentistry methods, you'll receive just enough sedation that you'll be completely unaware of the treatment, as you would if you were asleep.
Q. Will I be left alone during my Sedation Dentistry treatment?
A. No, along with your Sedation Dentist, there will be someone with you throughout the procedure to monitor your comfort and your safety. You can also have a companion present with you at all times.
Q. Will I remember anything after experiencing Sedation Dentistry?
A. Depending on which sedation method is used, you may have little or no memory of your dental visit.
Q. Will I be groggy after the treatment is over?
A. You will feel just fine. For your safety, you may be required to have a family member or friend drive you home.
Q. Will my insurance cover Dental Relaxation treatment?
A. Insurance generally covers a portion of the care. Your insurance coverage will be reviewed and, if necessary, financing can be arranged to ensure you get the dental care you need.
Q. What is the name of the drug that I will be given?
A. There are a number of safe and highly effective anxiety-reducing medications on the market today. For example, a drug called Triazolam is commonly used during Oral Conscious Sedation, or OCS, while Valium is often used during Axiolysis.

What is CEREC?
CEREC means we can quickly and economically restore damaged teeth using a durable ceramic material that matches the natural color of other teeth in your mouth. CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.
What advantages does CEREC offer me?
First and foremost, the restoration can be performed in a single session, usually in about one hour. With CEREC there's no need for us to make an impression and send it to a lab. We won't inconvenience you by asking you to return for a second visit.
Secondly, the restoration is natural looking, because it is made of tooth-colored ceramic material. It's metal-free – no silver fillings to discolor your smile! The ceramic material is compatible with tissue in your mouth and is high-grade, anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant. It allows us to be extremely precise and save more of the healthy part of your tooth.
How does CEREC work?
First, we prepare the damaged tooth by applying a thin layer of reflective powder directly on the tooth's surface. Using a special camera, we then take a picture of the tooth. We work from this photo, which is actually a pin-sharp optical impression of the tooth.
Computer Aided Design technology helps us design the restoration from the optical impression. You can actually watch us design your new restoration on a full-color computer monitor right before your eyes!
Then CEREC creates an extremely precise restoration. A high-speed diamond bur and a disk work simultaneously to mill the restoration out of a solid block of ceramic material. Finally, we bond the newly milled restoration to the tooth using state-of-the-art adhesive dentistry.
Over a decade of clinical research and experience supports the CEREC technology. User input and research have helped the manufacturer improve the product during this time. Dentists have performed over four million restorations worldwide.
