Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry is now being offered to those patients that get nervous or experience anxiety when seeing the dentist or for those patients that just want to relax during a more extensive dental procedure. Don't let your fear of the dentist keep you from achieving a healthy mouth.

Sedation dentistry options during your appointment include:

Nitrous Oxide:


Recommended for a short appointment or for those who only experience mild anxiety. Nitrous oxide provides light sedation and tends to give a patient a sense of euphoria. The effects of nitrous wear off following discontinuation and you are free to go about your normal daily routine immediately following your appointment.

Oral Sedation:


Oral sedation involves taking a pill(s) an hour prior to your dental appointment. With this type of sedation you will feel relaxed or may sleep and most patients tend to have little to no memory of the appointment. With this type of sedation you will need a driver to take you to and from your appointment. You should be able to go about your daily routine the next day.

Intravenous or I.V. Sedation:


This type of sedation involves having an I.V. placed in order for medications to be administered. The great part about I.V. sedation is that you don't have to wait around for the medication to take effect such as with oral sedation and we can easily and quickly increase your comfort level by giving additional medications. Intravenous sedation tends to have the best overall sedation results, especially in patients with severe dental anxiety or patients undergoing more invasive dental procedures. With this type of sedation you will need a driver to take you to and from your appointment. You should be able to go about your daily routine the day following the procedure.
