Dr. Kennedy is an affiliate instructor at the University of Washington, where he treats patients with a dental phobia with sedation techniques. Using the latest tools and techniques, we strive to make your experience as comfortable as possible.
What Is Sedation Dentistry?
Through sedation dentistry, we can keep patients comfortable and relaxed. Dental anxiety is a common fear among many adults. All it takes is one bad experience with the dentist when you were young, or even as an adult, for many patients to neglect keeping up with their regular dental cleaning and checkups.
Sedation dentistry allows Dr. Kennedy to perform the necessary procedures without being interrupted. We use nitrous oxide to bring patients to a dream-like state. This state will enable patients to answer Dr. Kennedy, and be aware of the procedure but not worry or stress over it.
Dr. Kennedy controls the amount of sedation a patient receives, and when the procedure is over, it only takes minutes for the nitrous oxide to clear. Patients can drive themselves home again without fear of falling asleep or being confused.
