Dental Sedation

Macomb Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, located in Shelby Township, Michigan, is dedicated to providing a comfortable and anxiety-free experience for our patients. We offer various sedation options to ensure relaxation and minimize discomfort during oral surgery procedures. Led by Dr. Joseph Hildebrand, our experienced team prioritizes patient comfort and safety throughout every step of your treatment.

We understand that dental and oral surgical procedures can cause anxiety and apprehension for many individuals. At Macomb Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, we offer sedation options to help alleviate fear and ensure a positive treatment experience. Our goal is to create a calm and relaxed environment where you can receive the care you need with minimal stress.

Our sedation options include:

1. Local Anesthesia: Local anesthesia is commonly used for numbing the specific area being treated. It eliminates pain and discomfort during the procedure while allowing you to remain awake and aware.

2. Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas): Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a safe and effective form of sedation that helps you relax during the procedure. It is administered through a mask, and its effects wear off quickly, allowing you to resume your normal activities after the procedure.

3. Oral Sedation: Oral sedation involves taking prescribed medication prior to your appointment to induce a deep state of relaxation. Although you will remain conscious, you may feel drowsy and less aware of the procedure.

4. IV Sedation: Intravenous (IV) sedation is administered directly into your bloodstream, allowing for deeper sedation and a more profound state of relaxation. This form of sedation is carefully monitored by our trained anesthesiologist to ensure your safety and comfort.

During your consultation, Dr. Joseph Hildebrand will discuss your sedation options based on your individual needs and the complexity of your procedure. We will consider your medical history, anxiety levels, and treatment requirements to determine the most suitable sedation approach for you.

Our team of highly skilled professionals will closely monitor you throughout the entire procedure, ensuring your comfort, safety, and well-being. We prioritize open communication and encourage you to ask questions or express any concerns you may have about sedation or your treatment.
