Oral Sedation

Oral sedation dentistry allows Dr. Min to create a safe and comfortable dental experience for patients who have avoided the dentist out of fear or who might have time restrictions.

Dr. Min has been trained to implement sedation can effectively help a patient become as comfortable and relaxed as possible using well established and proven protocols with a variety of sedation medications administered orally and sublingually (under the tongue). These protocols can be customized for the patient’s individual emotional and physical needs.

Sometimes referred to as ‘relaxation’, ‘sleep’ or ‘anxiety free’ dentistry, this comfortable care is now offered by thousands of trained dentists all over North America.

What is the First Step?

Simply call or email Hill Crest Dental. Dr. Min will answer any questions you have and ask you some simple questions to help ensure you get the care you want and deserve. When you’re ready, you can schedule a time that works for you for your welcoming visit.

This is when our staff will gather information regarding your health and discuss with you your wants and desires. If you’re comfortable, they will take x-rays and look inside your mouth. But you will never be judged or made to feel embarrassed.

Knowledge about oral sedation treatment is not only powerful, it is empowering. It is important to talk to Dr. Min about your fears and concerns during your consultation before any dentistry is performed. It is critical that you provide us with an updated health history including any medications you are on, including vitamins and supplements. Factors like smoking and alcohol consumption can alter the effectiveness of sedation medications, so be sure to tell us about any habits you may have.
