Sedation Dentistry

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to never dread the dentist again? That’s only one of the many benefits of sedation dentistry at TenderCare Dental. And if it’s been a while since your last dental visit, our doctors can correct any resulting damage or decay, usually in just one or two visits. Whether you need a cavity filled, dentures fitted, treatment for sore gums – or even cosmetic procedures to whiten your teeth or fix a chipped tooth – you’ll float through it all without the stress or fear you’ve experienced before.

A Safe, Effective Way to Calm Your Dental Treatment Fears

It may sound too good to be true, but at TenderCare Dental, sedation dentistry really does help you relax — or even sleep! — through your entire visit. There are no needles involved; you simply take a small pill prior to your visit.

The great news is that whatever makes you uncomfortable about the dentist’s office — sights, sounds, or smells — you won’t notice them during your visit or be affected by them after you’re finished. And there’s no need to worry that the pill will wear off before your treatment is complete; it provides up to six hours of complete comfort.

Even if you’ve been putting off dental visits for years, the professional team at TenderCare Dental Center can restore your mouth to good oral health in as little as one visit. Because you’re relaxed and at ease, it’s also easier for the numbing medication to take effect if a procedure is required. Comfort, relaxation, and a healthy mouth — all courtesy of sedation dentistry at TenderCare Dental in Portland, OR.

How Sedation Dentistry Works

Sedation dentistry is an effective way to combat dental anxiety, but you may wonder how it works. About an hour prior to your visit, you take a small pill that Dr. Thompson has provided. A companion accompanies you to the office because you’ll be very drowsy by the time you arrive.

Upon arrival at TenderCare Dental in Portland, OR, a friendly team member escorts you to a comfortable room where you’re covered with a thick, warm blanket and placed on a monitor to watch your vital signs. After you’re completely relaxed, our doctor and the experienced dental professionals at TenderCare Dental will give you an exam and perform any needed work.

After your treatment is finished, your companion will drive you home.

So relax! Now you can go to the dentist and receive personal care and attention in a stress-free, comfortable environment. We know that an estimated ten to twenty percent of people avoid going to the dentist for a variety of reasons. Some simply don’t have the time to schedule weeks of treatment in a dentist’s chair. With these special needs in mind, TenderCare Dental has established a dental practice focused on providing compassionate and efficient treatment through sedation dentistry.
