Conscious sedation, oral sedation or ‘sleep dentistry’ is a great option for any individuals who have anxiety or fear when visiting the dentist. Conscious sedation is a minimal level of consciousness that allows the patient’s to be relaxed and calm while still being able to respond appropriately to physical stimulation and verbal command. Sedation dentistry, is also sometimes referred to as relaxation dentistry, and is a way for dentist’s to manage pain and anxiety during dental appointments.
Dr. Spitz has a long history of utilizing sedation dentistry and been using conscious sedation methods since 2004. He is licensed within the state of Massachusetts to administer in-office conscious sedation, and has completed critical continued education classes including; a three-part conscious sedation course through DOCS, Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS).
SmileBoston Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry is also proud to be one of the first offices in the state of Massachusetts to be a part of the Sedation Dentistry Network. SDN is a group of Massachusetts’s dentists that have specific training, experience and licensing to treat individuals with moderate to severe dental phobia issues.
