Patient Comfort and Sedation
Your comfort is a top priority for our entire team. In addition to friendly, reassuring care, we offer various options for sedation to ensure that you are pain-free and relaxed during all procedures. We don’t want our patients to ever be in pain, and go to great lengths to assure they are not.
Conservative and Minimally Invasive Approach
We take a conservative approach in all our treatment, using non-surgical techniques whenever possible to help keep your treatment as comfortable as possible.
When surgery is necessary, such as when placing dental implants or treating severe periodontal disease, we keep you comfortable by using minimally invasive procedures in combination with IV or oral sedation as necessary. We always numb your gums with a topical anesthetic prior to gently and slowly administering an injection.
Non-Surgical Gum Disease Treatment With the Perioscope
One of the ways we ensure your comfort is by employing non-surgical treatment for gum disease with the Perioscope. We can effectively treat over 90% of our patients without the cutting or stitching that accompanies surgery.
We offer sedation options to help our patients receive the treatments they need without fear or anxiety.
Oral sedation will relax you and allow you to doze lightly during your treatment. You may be woken at any time, and many of our patients tell us afterward they feel as though they’ve taken a relaxing nap.
For longer procedures, or for patients who experience trepidation about treatment, we offer intravenous (IV) sedation. This form of sedation allows you to relax and doze in the same manner as oral sedation, only more deeply. Dr. Bakuri is certified in and experienced with IV sedation procedures.
