Dr. Dondo Dental Excellence offers sedation dentistry in Bend, Oregon, which uses medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. From a simple teeth cleaning to more complex dental procedures, sedation dentistry can help patients with anxiety relax during their appointment.
While some dentists offer full sedation with an IV and general anesthesia, Dr. Dondo offers orally-taken pills for sedation dentistry. Patients take the medication the night before a dental procedure, allowing them to sleep well with less anxiety about their impending dental work. The next morning, another dose is taken and a driver is needed in route to the appointment. While the pill will make you drowsy, you will still be conscious during the procedure.
