In addition to the use of traditional local anesthetic, the doctors at Progressive Periodontics offer the option of conscious sedation. Conscious sedation is a safe, drug-induced state in which you are conscious and pleasantly relaxed, yet free of fear, anxiety and apprehension. Many patients have no memory of their dental appointment. Our doctors are certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support and have performed sedation on thousands of patients. Conscious sedation is different from general anesthesia, with much less risk, while being extremely effective.
Progressive Periodontics also offers oral sedation as well as nitrous oxide gas to help our patients overcome anxiety and make treatment more pleasant and comfortable.
