Sedation Dentistry: A magic pill that makes you feel … absolutely nothing!

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation Dentistry is called Oral Conscious Sedation because you will not be under general anesthesia. You will simply spend the day under the effect of a drug, which allows you to relax and rid yourself of your anxiety.

Just relax…

With today’s technology and pharmacology, there’s no reason to experience pain or anxiety with your trip to the dentist.

Dr. Hoffman is considered the original sedation dentist in the Miami area. He has extensive training and decades of experience with oral conscious sedation dentistry. In his practice, he uses sedation techniques for two reasons:

1. Overcoming anxiety associated with a visit to the dentist.
2. More extensive treatment in less time.

Sedation allows for more to be accomplished in just one Miami dentist appointment. Your beautiful smile is completed in a shorter amount of time! Cosmetic Makeovers with porcelain veneers, restorations (crowns, caps, fillings) or implants can be accomplished easily and comfortably during sedation.

How it works?

You take a little pill just before you come to our Aventura office. Your fears will evaporate into thin air. As an added bonus, many patients say they actually forget their entire experience. The time spent in the dentist chair will feel like mere minutes. Of course, everyone’s experience is different.

You take a little pill…

While treatments are being performed, you will be closely and constantly monitored with high-tech medical equipment. Additionally, Dr. Hoffman and/or one of his experienced dental assistants will be at your side the entire time. Not only is sedation dentistry pain-free and stress-free, it is extremely safe!

Preparation – before your actual appointment
• 12 hours before your appointment, you are not allowed food or drink (water is the exception)
• The mild sedative will be taken in tablet form just before your appointment. This has a calming and relaxing affect on you
• Please arrange to have someone drop off and pick you up from your appointment. You will not be able to drive

Appointment day
• Your treatment won’t begin until you are completely relaxed
• If you require further sedation, another pill will be made available
• Not only will someone will be with you at all times, but your blood pressure and pulse will constantly be observed

• Please ensure you have a ‘ride’ home following your appointment
• You will be unable to work for the remainder of the day
• You will have little or no memory of your treatment
• Ask for assistance when you require it. Basic common sense should prevail
