Sedation dentistry is a type of dental practice aimed to alleviate the anxiety and fear that some people have when they undergo invasive or extensive dental procedures. Dr. Kuchar is one of the only trained and certified sedation dentists in the RI and MA areas. Sedation dentistry involves expert administration of an oral or IV sedation agent, which dulls the senses of the patient without resulting in unconsciousness during the procedure. This type of sedation is used for invasive or extensive procedures. For regular cleanings, a much light form of sedation is available in an inhaled, gas form, but does come with an extra charge.
