This technique, coupled with the sensitive care and attention of our team members, can help even the most anxious patients feel comfortable at Beauchamp Dental.

Regardless if your fears stem from past traumas or simply discomfort at medical offices, we will work to understand your needs in order to best assist you.

Why Sedation Dentistry?

You might have never pictured your dentist’s office as a relaxing place, but you may think differently after a sedation dentistry procedure. Anxiety-free dentistry can be achieved with a simple pill that relaxes your body and makes your very drowsy without causing you to become unconscious – so it’s essentially like you’re asleep! Sedation dentistry can be combined with a number of dental services, so patients who require cosmetic, restorative, or even emergency dental care can receive it, stress-free.

How It Works

Sedation dentistry is an extremely simple procedure. Prior to undergoing your dental treatment, you will be instructed to take a small pill via the mouth.

The medication is completely safe and is a mild sedative that will help to relax you and help your body loosen up for treatment.

The treatment is called “conscious oral sedation”, which simply means that you will be conscious during treatment, but you will be lightly sedated so you will not feel pain, anxiety, discomfort, or any negative symptoms you might otherwise experience at the dentist. You will begin to feel the effects shortly after taking it, and then Dr. Beauchamp will begin. Patients regularly report that the procedure feels like it only lasts a few minutes and they have little recollection of extent of the treatment.

Who Is an Ideal Candidate?

Sedation dentistry is recommended for patients who experience any of the following:

  • High levels of fear, discomfort, or anxiety
  • Fear or trauma from past dental experiences
  • Sensitive teeth, gums, or gag reflex
  • Complex or extensive dental troubles
  • Difficulty achieving numbness with topical or local anesthetics
  • Aversion to needles, shots, or dental instruments
  • General dislike of dental office or similar medical environments

Our main concern is ensuring our patients are comfortable before undergoing treatment. Your safety and satisfaction are of utmost importance to us, and we will do everything we can to help you feel comfortable during all your oral health appointments, whether it for routine teeth cleaning or a restorative treatment like implants.

Sedation dentistry is a delicate procedure and should never be performed by an under- qualified practitioner. You should only trust a board-certified dentist like Dr. Beauchamp to perform dentistry procedures under conscious oral sedation. Don’t cut corners or seek cheaper alternatives when it comes to your oral health! At Beauchamp Dental, we will work with patients in Doral and surrounding cities to help develop a plan that can help tackle all your dental needs without breaking the bank.
