Why Is Sedation Dentistry Important?

SEDATION

Care Instructions

Pain Management

Following surgical procedures there may, or may not, be discomfort – this is dependent on your threshold for pain. You will be provided with medication for discomfort that is appropriate for you. In most cases, a non-narcotic pain regimen will be given. This consists of acetaminophen (Tylenol) and Ibuprofen (Advil). Alternating these medications can be as effective as a narcotic, without the side effects associated with narcotics. If a narcotic has been prescribed, follow the directions carefully. Should you have any questions about these medications interacting with other prescriptions you are currently taking, PLEASE contact the office and/or your pharmacist prior to taking them.

Education and Experience

The Watterson Way

Dr. Scott Watterson

Many people would define cosmetic dentistry by what they’ve seen on “extreme makeover” type shows. However, subtle changes can be just as effective at improving a smile, as well as someone’s confidence about smiling.

Many have the misconception that all cosmetic services are incredibly expensive or long, drawn out procedures, which discourages them from moving forward with what they truly want.

Dr. Watterson uses the most conservative treatment possible, while pursuing your maximum health and function. Our cosmetic care is specifically tailored to your needs, concerns, and how you want your smile to shine in the end.

Serving as a general dentist for 25 years, I have developed and curated a passion for cosmetic dentistry in all its facets. I believe that form follows function and that is the basis of my practice. When your teeth are able to function the way you need them to, beautiful form naturally follows.

My desire is for the work of my hands to reach beyond the individual to impact everyone who is graced with their smile.

I can’t say enough great things about Watterson Dentistry. All of the staff treated me very well. They are so personal and make you feel at home. If you’re looking for a new dentist get on over there.

Great staff! They make you feel like part of the family. If you dread the dentist due to concern of discomfort, you don’t have to worry if you are seen here. I have had the deep cleaning below the gum line, routine cleanings, and I am now receiving orthodontic treatment. I am very happy that I chose Dr. Watterson and staff.

Where does a dentist go when he needs work done in his own mouth? I go to my U of M Dental School classmate, Dr. Scott Watterson. Why? I can trust him (and you can too) to do what is proper and do it well. It doesn’t hurt either that he has a top-notch support team!
