We are pleased to offer oral sedation dentistry for our patients who are extremely anxious or who need a large amount of treatment in one day. Dental phobia is a real and acknowledged condition and if you avoid dental appointments because of stress and anxiety, as a certified oral sedation dentist, Dr Rozema can help you.
Dr. Rozema will prescribe medication that will make you feel very drowsy, but not put you to sleep. When you arrive at the office, you will be taken to a comfortable room with a warm blanket and neck pillow. Depending on the amount of treatment to be completed, you may be given more medication and will feel completely relaxed and comfortable throughout the procedure. Our well trained staff will be with you during the entire process attending to your needs. Because of the sedation, you will need to have someone bring you to the office and pick you up at the end of your appointment. All of the effects of the sedation will be gone by the next day and you will have little memory of the process.
Sedation dentistry is ideal for the highly fearful patient whose anxiety has caused them to neglect their mouths, or for the very busy patient who wants to avoid multiple appointments for the dental treatment they need. Call Dr. Rozema to schedule your oral sedation consultation. We will be happy to answer your questions and to provide the care you need comfortably and stress free.
