Once you've experienced sedation dentistry with Dr. Gist, you may see that your anxiety of the dental environment slowly goes away! Fear of dental treatment may come from many different and long lasting experiences.
Our teams goal is to support and encourage you to improve your confidence in having your restorative / cosmetic dentistry accomplished in a predictably safe and comfortable manor. Medications can assist with this process, but the emotional support by a caring dental team that cares about your well being is what changes lives and moves patients past their previous negative dental experiences for the better... and that is the truth!
Our Oral Sedation Protocol is simple, predictable and safe. You will be lightly to moderately sedated using a very safe and time tested oral medication, that is generally taken the night before and the morning of your procedure.
Because you are completely comfortable, Dr. Gist can accomplish years of restorative dentistry in as little as one or two visits. Our Oral Sedation Protocol is perfect for extremely busy patients that also desire to have their dentistry done in as efficient manor possible! Imagine being able to smile with confidence and chew your food without pain. No wonder so many patients say: "Thank you, Dr. Gist. Sedation dentistry changed my life."
