Reliable Sedation Dentistry That Is Pain-Free


(610) 615 0160

Providing Sedation Dentistry For Over 18 Years In Chester County

Are you avoiding the dentist because of a painful experience? Many people face dentistry with this common fear known as dental phobia. According to the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS Education) thirty percent of the population avoids visiting their dentist due to anxiety or apprehension. Sedation dentistry allows individuals that are too afraid to go to the dentist to receive the dental health care they need.

If you have been avoiding the dentist for years for even the most basic dental care, we can provide you with a relaxing, anxiety-free sedation dental care experience. With over eighteen years of experience in Oral and IV Sedation, Dr. Briglia has helped many, many patients with oral and IV sedation in Chester county. Pain relief is an essential component of modern dentistry, along with achieving a beautiful smile, healthy teeth and infection-free gums.

Best Candidates for Sedation Dental Care:

  • Those with a sensitive gag reflex
  • Patients with complex cases that can be completed in fewer appointments
  • Anyone with anxiety or fear just thinking about going to the dentist as well as fear of the smells and sounds of dental care
  • Those with a fear of needles or injections
  • Patients with past traumatic dental experiences as children or adults
  • Someone with limited jaw opening that makes dental care very difficult
  • Anyone who faces difficulty in getting numb
  • Patients looking for a compassionate and caring dental team who understands dental fear
  • Patients looking for a dentist who understands the fear of going to the dentist (as his own childhood dentist did not use numbing to drill on his baby teeth!)

Primary Care Physician Consulting Prior to Sedation Dental Appointment

We will consult with your medical doctor or specialist to be sure you are a candidate for sedation dental treatment. The team at Briglia Dental Group has been able to treat even the most fearful patients. We use a combination of sedation medications and proven techniques to keep you comfortable and relaxed during the entire dental procedure with little to no memory of the appointment. Many patients choose the sedation dentistry method in order to quickly and painlessly complete complex dental procedures. These include cosmetic procedures, aesthetic smile makeovers, laminate veneers, advanced prosthodontics, and even treatments as simple as basic extractions and fillings. In certain cases, we may schedule a Saturday appointment to avoid delays in patients returning to work.

Call us at (610) 615 0160 to request a sedation dentistry consultation and see what the team can do to give you back your winning smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

So, you may be one of the 10% of people suffering from dental phobia. Well, let us help put your mind at ease. Sedating a patient during a dental procedure is a very safe and effective way to reduce your stress levels while taking care of a variety of dental problems. Briglia Dental Group has extensive experience in dental sedation practices and will review your medical history before any treatment as well as monitor you very closely during sedation. Feel free to give us a call for a no charge sedation consultation to discuss your concerns and to ask us any questions you may have about sedation dentistry.

Conscious sedation is a great option for those patients who need to recover quickly. By combining the proper sedatives with anesthetics, it allows you to be semi-awake, while being very relaxed, totally free of pain with little to no memory of the visit. When your procedure is complete, you should be able to return to your everyday schedule the next day as you will need to relax and recover from the sedation medications.

No, most patients feel zero discomfort during their treatment and very minimal pain afterwards. When you come in for an appointment involving sedation, you can expect everything to follow the plan discussed before your appointment. We’ll make sure you’re comfortable, administer the proper sedation, and begin our procedure as you relax, stress-free. Some patients stay very relaxed while most others fall asleep altogether. You may have a limited memory of the treatment, but more often you won’t remember much of anything.

Simple answer: yes! We guarantee a stress-free, pain-free, relaxing experience during our sedation dentistry procedures.

You will feel groggy immediately after treatment, and a caregiver or spouse will drive you home to relax and recover. Generally many patients feel fine after a sedation appointment but need to be monitored until the sedation medication wears off.  Many patients will sleep when they get home as the sedation medication will continue to be metabolized.

If you gag easily during normal dental procedures, then sedation dentistry will help resolve this problem! Patients don’t have any problems with gagging while sedated.
