Sedation Dentistry

leave anxiety at the door

Sedation dentistry is the solution for many of our patients who experience great anxiety at dental appointments. Anxiety is a very real emotion and we take it very seriously. That’s why our team takes your comfort very seriously, and we try to recognize as well as take care of your  needs as or before they occur.

Levels of Sedation:

 

Oral Conscious Sedation

Experience stress-free and pain-free dentistry
Oral conscious sedation includes a prescription for a specific medication
Easy to take pill before appointment
Mild side effects allow the patient to relax fully for a few hours
**We find that oral medication is the least predictable of our three options, because we can only estimate how long the sedative will remain effective and how profound it will be.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Effects of nitrous are very pleasantGreat for patients with mild to moderate dental anxiety
So safe and effective that it can even be used for children
Comfortable/ Easy to wear nasal mask
Patients may safely drive home after dental visits

General Sedation

Incredible way to control pain
The deepest level of sedation available
Very very safe application
Ambulatory anestesia unit used for deployment
Same technology in treatment as outpatient or hospital setting
Very low levels of nausea post treatment

IV sedation

Ideal for patients who want to go to sleep and wake up and it’s done
Undergoing treatment such as wisdom teeth removal
Complete several procedures in a single visit
Administered by an experienced dental anesthesiologist

 

Post Treatment

Following treatment with oral conscious sedation or IV sedation, there is typically little recollection of treatment. We recommend that patients are driven to and from our office by a trusted friend or family member and the patient remain supervised for the remainder of the day, while the effects of sedation wear off. Sedation dentistry in Oklahoma City from Dr. Schmidt will change the way you feel about going to the dentist. For more information about our services, or to schedule a consultation, call 405-563-7097.

The team at Reflections Dental is professional, helpful, compassionate and skilled from Veronica their Dental Assistant to Lindsay their Treatment Coordinator to Dr. Marie Bockus DDS. everyone on their team has been wonderful. Dr. Kimberly Greenlee DDS helped me when the veneer on my front tooth needed to be replaced. I was so frantic when it broke unexpectedly. Even though I was a brand new patient they worked me into their schedule that same day to install a temporary veneer so I could resume my job. I work as a fundraiser so my worst nightmare would be meeting with a donor with half of my front tooth missing. When it came time to create and put on the new veneer Dr. Greenlee was so patient with me. She graciously answered all of my questions and made sure I was completely comfortable with the entire procedure. Her attention to detail and desire to get the color matched perfectly to my other teeth was much appreciated. My family members have commented how well this veneer was made, matched and installed. I like to think of myself as a happy person who loves to laugh so everyone who meets me sees my smile so the appearance of my teeth is important to me. I am grateful to the entire team at Reflections Dental for not only replacing my veneer with an exquisite match, but also for taking care of my teeth and mouth all year long. I would highly recommend Reflections Dental to anyone looking for a high quality dentist with hearts for their patients well being.read more

I was recommended to this office by a friend and I am so glad I made the switch! They are very caring, gentle and efficient. I have been to other offices that are impossible to get an appointment with, but at Reflections I was able to have my first appointment within a week of calling the office. The front desk staff is incredibly kind, prompt and knowledgeable. They take time to explain your bill to you and don't force you into anything that you aren't comfortable with. I have worked with two different hygienists so far and both ladies did an outstanding job! While at my appointment, I was chatting with my hygienist and she was able to recall everything we spoke about and relay it correctly to the dentist when she came in the room to do her exam. When you leave this office you feel like you're leaving a friends house (a friend that knows a lot about your teeth, haha!). I wish I could give them more than 5 stars!! Can't recommend them enough! Thank you, Reflections!read more
