Whether our patients require a single filling or are looking to have their entire smile restored, sedation dentistry can help patients achieve optimum dental health in the most comfortable way possible. However there are cold hard facts patients must know about Sedation Dentistry and Sedation Dentists says Dr. Atcha: What is Sedation Dentistry? It has become very popular for dental practices to market the terms sedation and sleep dentistry. Sedation or sleep dentistry have different meanings to dentists and patients. Most patients do not know that there are different levels of training that dentists are legally required to obtain in order to provide basic to advanced levels of sedation and anesthesia. Dentists can provide oral sedation (pills), conscious sedation (intravenous medications), or general anesthesia (true sleep) provided they are properly trained and licensed. Only a few select dentists like Dr. Atcha in this country are advanced trained and licensed to provide complete anesthesia. "Our patients will not respond or recall even the most noxious procedures". "There are different types of sedation methods that patients should be aware of," says Atcha as there is so much hype about dentist jumping on the Sedation Dentistry band wagon and advertise themselves as sedation dentists. Most dentists that only provide oral sedation advertise sedation with just a single pill. These oral medications are only effective in individuals that are mildly anxious. Very anxious or phobic patients never achieve their desired level of comfort. Oral sedation can actually make an anxious patient more uncooperative. "Contrary to advertised claims, patients are not asleep with oral sedation", Says Atcha “For a patient to be asleep with oral sedation, they must be overdosed! This places them at risk, especially since only minimal patient monitoring is present or utilized in offices that advertise oral sedation." A dentist need only attend a weekend course to be able to provide oral sedation in their practice. A few dentists are trained to provide IV or intravenous sedation for their patients. IV sedation can provide a much better patient experience because medications are administered directly into the bloodstream through an intravenous line. Despite claims that a patient will be asleep, they are legally required to remain conscious. Patients must realize that they will be relaxed but not asleep. Dentists are only required to complete 60 hours of training, pass a test, and pass an onsite inspection to receive a permit. General anesthesia is the only anesthetic state where the patient can be considered completely sleep. Throughout the nation, only a very small number of dentists have residency training, knowledge, and a license to provide patients with general anesthesia like Dr. Atcha at his Center for Implants, Sedation and Cosmetic Dentistry. Medications can be administered intravenously or through gases inhalational agents. Patients are asleep, amnesic and stress free during procedures. Imagine having a root canal and the patient never feel, hear or remember anything! "Dentists


must complete a residency in anesthesiology and pass periodic on site inspections to receive a permit to administer general anesthesia". Says Atcha. Above all else, patients safety comes first as Dr. Atcha and his anesthesia assistant are properly trained in administration of anesthesia and monitoring of the patient from start to finish.
