For the procedures Doctor Cochrane specializes in, most patients do not require sedation but some have significant dental fears and prefer to be sedated.
Dr. Cochrane predominately uses oral sedation (Enteral Sedation) techniques that are effective and significantly safer than Intravenous (I.V.) sedation techniques. Doctor Cochrane is University trained in this method.
When visiting the office for a teeth cleaning or other minor procedures you have the option of Nitrous Oxide Sedation.
