Patient Comfort

sedation dentistry - Eden Prairie, MIWhile no dental procedure is 100% comfortable, we try to minimize any discomfort you might feel.  Many of our patients make statements like, "This wasn't even painful.  How did you do that?" 

The PerioWest Experience

Your comfort is our priority. We offer the following amenities to make your time with us more pleasant:

  • Keurig coffee and teas
  • Dental chairs with massage
  • Blankets
  • Netflix On Demand in all operatories

Anesthetic and Sedation

The following are some of the latest techniques we use to provide you with as comfortable an experience as possible:

Pre-medication

Patient comfort is one of the most important aspects of care. Different patients have different needs for pain and anxiety control medication. Depending upon the procedure and your wishes, there are many medications we can prescribe.

Patients with certain medical conditions (e.g. valvular heart conditions and artificial joints) may be asked to pre-medicate with antibiotics prior to treatment. We do this with your safety in mind. Please inform us if you have a condition that might require pre-medication.

Injections of Local Anesthetic

The Wand® Computer Assisted Anesthesia System combines patented, state-of-the-art computer-controlled injection technology with Dr. Sanchez's training to achieve more precise injections, improved drug delivery and enhanced patient comfort levels.

Sedation

For those patients who would feel more comfortable with sedation, we offer nitrous oxide to help you relax during your treatment.

We also offer closely monitored conscious IV sedation. Just enough sedation is administered to allow you to be completely relaxed while still being aware of your surroundings. Afterwards, you will not remember your dental treatment.

Your comfort is one of our primary concerns. If you have any questions about anesthesia or sedation, please do not hesitate to discuss these with us.

Patient Safety

We adhere to the highest professional standards of cleanliness, sterilization, and radiation control. Our staff regularly attend safety seminars and are knowledgeable on the latest techniques.
