We are unique to the field of General Dentistry. With a Missouri Dental Board Certification in Deep Sedation and General Anesthesia, Dr. Hoffmann places an emphasis on anesthesia and anxiety control for the individual with special needs. Providing care to individuals who are severely anxious, have difficulty getting numb, a severe gag reflex, are mentally or physically disabled , and patients who are unable to cooperate, such as young children , benefit from anesthesia services. Extensive treatment can be completed in as little as one visit for candidates who require a large amount of dental care from years of neglected visits to the dentist.
Our state-of-the-art dental facility accommodates to patients who require Oral Sedation, Deep Sedation, or General Anesthesia for dental care.

What are the levels of sedation ?
Minimal Sedation (conscious) is the lightest level of sedation. It involves a mild sedative, such as a Valium like medication or Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas.) This kind of sedation requires no additional training for the dentist.
The next level is Moderate Sedation (conscious) and is referred to as "Sedation Dentistry ." Moderate Sedation allows the patient to simply respond to question. You are not asleep for Sedation Dentistry. When administered orally (pills), the dentist is required to receive two days of additional training. Intravenous (IV) Sedation requires at least 60 hours of training or a dentist can be trained as part of a residency program.
Deep Sedation or General Anesthesia is referred to as "Sleep Dentistry" (unconscious). Using this method, there is no memory of the procedure. Dentists who provide this method require a two year Dental Anesthesiology Residency or an Oral Surgery Residency. This is the recommended level of sedation for individuals unable to tolerate dental treatment for mental or physical reasons.
When you come in for your appointment , Dr. Hoffmann or Dr. Mayer will decide which level is best for you. We look forward to meeting you.

How Old Is Your Toothbrush?
Replace your toothbrush every 3 or 4 months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed. A worn toothbrush won't do a good job of cleaning your teeth.
