What is Sleep/Sedation Dentistry?

Oral Conscious Sedation is a minimally depressed level of consciousness which is produced by oral medications that retain the patient’s ability to independently maintain an open airway.

Throughout time, doctors have used sedation as a means to providing medical and dental care to patients who could otherwise not go through those procedures. Even in the beginning of Genesis “the lord caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam… and he took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh.. as he slept.”

A standard of excellence in personalized dental care enables us to provide the high quality dental services our patients deserve.  Dr. Solomon is dedicated to providing the same level of optimal quality care to each patient.  For those patients who have anxiety towards dental procedures, he is able to clam them first and foremost, with his kind, caring, and relaxing bedside manner.  To all to that, he is licensed to provide and administer certain medications that will enable the anxious patient to literraly “sleep through it all.”

Is Sleep Dentistry Safe?

Dr. Solomon is highly experienced at administering the customized oral sedation elements that will allow each individual patient to safely and effectively sleep though the dental procedure.  He is trained to monitor oxygenation, ventilation, circulation and temperature of the patient during the procedure to ensure patient safety.  He has studied guidelines provided by the American Society of Anesthesiology: Practice Guidelines for Sedation and Analgesia by Non-Anesthesiologists.  His area of expertise is recognized by the:

JC (Joint Commission), AAAHC (Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care), and the AAAASF (American Association of Ambulatory Surgical Facilities)

Infection control in also very important to us.  To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
