Sleep Dentistry for Dental Implants and Bone Grafting

The majority of dental implants and bone replacement procedures can be performed in the office under local anesthesia and IV sedation.

A contemporary method of anesthesia, sleep dentistry is very safe and effective. You can sleep through your entire procedure and wake up feeling refreshed, not groggy (the way you would if you were under general anesthesia). You can have dental implants without remembering a thing about your appointment! The most important thing is that you and I review your current health, medications and past history.

So how does sleep dentistry work? You are given a precisely controlled amount of medication. Some of the medications we use would last only one to three minutes if given as a single injection, but because the IV provides a steady stream of medication, you stay asleep throughout your treatment. When your dental work is complete, I turn off the medication and after just a few minutes you wake up.

I am one of the most experienced sleep dentists in the local area. I have been formally trained in the technique through residency. In fact, I am a sedation examiner for the state of California, which means I observe other dentists technique and pass or fail their certification.
