Dental Sedation Allows You to Get the Smile Care You Need
There’s no shame in asking for sedation at the dentist office. Surveys show that most people experience at least some anxiety about going to the dentist. Dental sedation will relax you so you can comfortably sit through your exam or procedure. For many people, it is a lifesaver and a necessary part of their dental visit. We offer several types of sedation, including:
- Inhaled Sedation – You’ll breathe in sweet-smelling laughing gas, and almost immediately you’ll begin to feel a lightness and euphoria from head to toe. You may even feel a little tingly in your arms and legs. Inhaled sedation works great for people with mild dental anxiety.
- Oral Conscious Sedation – For a slightly deeper level of sedation, your dentist will prescribe a small pill to take before your exam or procedure. It will make you feel very relaxed and maybe even groggy. Someone will need to drive you home afterward, as the pill will take a few hours to wear off.
- IV Sedation – Our deepest level of sedation will put you in a “twilight” state, so you won’t experience any of the sights, sounds, or smells of your visit. You also won’t remember anything about it afterward. A friend or family member will need to drive you home afterward as you’ll still feel groggy when you leave.
