As a method to enhance a patient's comfort and reduce anxiety related to receiving dental care, Comfort Dental Spa is proud to offer sedation dentistry in Farmington Hills.
Sedation dentistry involves taking a patient's comfort into account every step of the way. From providing a warm, comforting environment, to medication options that enhance relaxation, Comfort Dental Spa utilizes every approach possible to make a patient's experience exceptional and anxiety-free. Dr. Askari is a certified sedation dentist by the Dental Organization of Conscious Sedation and is a member of the American Society of Dentist Anesthesiologists.

Our Sedation Dentistry Services
At Comfort Dental Spa, Dr. Aziza Askari and her team of dentists offer a variety of sedation dentistry services. The experience truly begins with our office's relaxing, spa-like environment. Our office is painted in warm, neutral colors and our operatories provide comfortable chairs. Instead of feeling like you are at a medical office, you should feel as if you are at a trip to the spa.
Dr. Askari and her dental team also utilize special tools and technology to minimize discomfort during treatments and procedures. This technology includes the Waterlase dental laser, which uses water and laser energy to remove decayed tooth portions without the need for noisy equipment that may produce anxiety. We also use DentalVibe pulse technology to minimize discomfort associated with dental injections.
Sedation dentistry methods most commonly involve using medications, that are either administered in pill form or intravenously, to help you relax during a procedure and make the time you spend at our office pass quickly. Dr. Askari and her Farmington Hills sedation dentistry staff can discuss your fears associated with dental procedures and can select the most appropriate medication for you. Common oral medications for sedation purposes include:
Each of these medications produces an amnesic effect so that you will not remember much of the time you spend during treatment. While you will remain conscious, you will be entirely relaxed and at ease.
