Comfort & Sedation
We’ll ensure your comfort during any treatment
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.
Conservative and minimally invasive
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 for placing dental implants or treating severe periodontal disease, we keep you comfortable by using minimally invasive procedures in combination with IV or oral sedation if 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 Periscope
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.
Oral sedation will relax you and allow you to doze lightly during your treatment. You may be woken at any time, and many patients feel as though they’ve taken a relaxing nap.
For longer procedures, or for patients who experience trepidation about treatment, we offer IV sedation. This form of conscious sedation allows you to relax and doze in the same manner as oral sedation. Dr. Bakuri is certified in and experienced with IV sedation procedures.
We don’t want our patients to ever be in pain, and go to great lengths to assure they are not.
