If you have avoided dental care due to fear or anxiety sedation dentistry may be be for you. Sedation dentistry allows our patients to experience comfortable dental care while they rest. Dr. Wolff and his qualified clinical staff offer sedation dentistry in a professional, supportive atmosphere. The medicine that is ued is Trizolam. Our patient is given a small blue pill one hour prior to their scheduled appointment. This drug has almost no side effects and does not cause an interaction with other medications the patient may be using. One of the additional benefits of this medicine is that the medicine has an amnesia quality which leaves our patients with little or no memory of their visit. For safety reasons you will need someone available to drive you home after your treatment

Only 1% of dentists in the United States are trained to practice sedation dentistry. Dr. Wolff is a member of "DOCS" the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation. Dr. Wolff has performed sedation dentistry on hundreds of patients with complete success.
During sedation dentistry are highly trained staff along with Dr. Wolff will monitor the patients heart rate, blood pressure and oxygen saturation. We have a reversal agent on hand if necessary, that reverses the effect of the sedation medication in less that 30 seconds.
