Sedation Dentistry

For some people, visiting the dentist is a source of anxiety. If you are one of those people, there is good news! Thanks to advances in sedation dentistry, it is possible to receive comfortable dental treatment. For your complete comfort, we offer sedation dentistry for any and all procedures.

How Sedation Dentistry Works

Although the anesthetic used in modern dentistry is extremely effective at reducing pain, administering the anesthetic often requires a needle prick that some patients fear. Sedation dentistry enables patients to arrive for their dental appointments completely at ease.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation dentistry allows us to relieve anxiety without the use of needles or intravenous tubes. Additionally, patients who traditionally have trouble getting numb have no problem when sedated and relaxed.

About an hour prior to your appointment, you will be asked to take a small pill that will make you drowsy. By the time a companion accompanies you to our office for the appointment, you will be feeling relaxed and calm. Once you are comfortable, Dr. Shlafer will complete the dental procedure. During the entire procedure, your vital signs will be monitored to ensure your health and safety. After the treatment is completed, the companion will take you home to rest and sleep for a couple of hours after the appointment.

Conscious Sedation

Conscious Sedation is an effective technique for managing moderate to severe dental anxiety. We believe it is a valuable tool for ensuring your complete relaxation during a procedure you may ordinarily not have done due to extreme fear.

During the procedure, monitoring devices are placed that monitor your heart rate, blood oxygen levels, blood pressure and breathing. You will be awake through the whole procedure, allowing Dr. Shlafer to give you directions; however, the medications administered during conscious sedation leave you with amnesia of the procedure. You will remember nothing about your experience!

Our Happy Patients

"I was going to another dentist who didn't quite get it... after switching to Dr. Shlafer I now know how THE BEST DENTIST ever operates! Dr. Shlafer first treated me for a bite-issue that would not go away. Soon after my first visit I was pain-free! Recently I had an area where food often got stuck - after Dr. Shlafer worked his magic I no longer have that issue. I drive all the way from Highland Township to see Dr. Shlafer -- and, it's well worth it. No matter where you live Dr. Shlafer is the ONLY dentist that I'd recommend. Thanks Doc!"

"The staff here is stellar. I've been going here for years now and have never had a bad experience. The women at the desk greet everyone by name, and the doctor remembers everything you tell him about yourself. Everyone here knows what they're doing, a trip here is never a hassle, and they'll always keep your best interest in mind."

"I am a patient of Dr. Shlafer and he has helped me tremendously. I had to have a lot corrective dentistry done and I sought out Dr. Shlafer to take on the challenge. I have told many people that he is a master in his field. He pays attention to the details and is extremely skilled in his craft way beyond normal denistry. I send all my friends and family to him especially if there is something out of the ordinary that needs to be done. He has advanced training and can take on serious issues."
