Oral Conscious Sedation Dentist

Dental anxiety is not unusual, for it is quite natural for a person to be uncomfortable when placed in a position in which they feel vulnerable, as occurs in the dental chair. In most cases, simply discussing the planned procedure is necessary to alleviate the patient's fears. When this is not enough, other highly effective and safe sedation techniques can be used to alleviate the anxiety.

Licensed To Perform Oral Conscious Sedation

Dr. Bruno is licensed to use oral conscious sedation for patients who feel they may need a little more than just a pep talk. The patient is given a sedative drug to be taken by mouth before the planned treatment. If the individual has an even greater degree of dental anxiety, he may prescribe an oral sedative to be taken at home one hour prior to going to sleep on the evening before the appointment.

Oral Conscious Sedatives Used

Patients receiving this type of sedation are not permitted to drive a vehicle for 24 hours following their appointment. Commonly administered oral conscious sedatives include:

  • Valium

  • Halcion

  • Dalmane

  • Versed

Oral conscious sedation dentistry is most effective in managing milder degrees of dental anxiety and for the use in patients that have a considerable amount of treatment to lessen the amount of chair time.

Oral Surgery

At Bruno Dental Care, we perform three types of extractions:

This is one in which the dentist can remove the tooth simply by loosening the gums around it, grasping the crown above the gum line, and moving it from side to side until it loosens from the bone.

Unfortunately, most extractions cannot be done by simply grasping and rocking it out. In that case, it becomes necessary to remove the tooth surgically. This involves separating the roots using instrumentation and drilling to make way for a surgical flap that will require sutures.

This occurs when a tooth is not fully erupted into the oral cavity and remains below the gum line. Impacted teeth can present special health problems and are generally removed, much like the surgical extraction above but with the added need of additional soft tissue manipulation.

Cosmetic Dentistry

While traditional dentistry focuses on oral hygiene and preventing, diagnosing, and treating oral disease, cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of a person’s teeth, mouth and smile. Here at Bruno Dental Care, we offer a wide range of options, including composite bonding, porcelain crowns, dental implants, and teeth whitening.

Root Canal Treatment

Root canals and their associated pulp chamber are the physical hollows within a naturally inhabited tooth by nerve tissue and blood vessels. Endodontic therapy involves removing these structures, cleaning, shaping, and decontamination of the hollows with tiny files and irrigating solutions, and filling the canals with a filling material. This process preserves the tooth and enables the patient to save it.

The Dental Care Specialist for Your Root Canal Needs

In most dental practices, it is required that once a patient is diagnosed needing a root canal, the patient is then sent out to a specialist to have the procedure completed. Dr. Bruno has been performing root canals for more than 20 years, and his level of expertise allows the patient the flexibility of having all necessary treatment done within our facility.
