Sedation dentistry can change your dental experience! There are many benefits of sedation dentistry that can help you work towards a healthier smile. We offer both nitrous oxide sedation and IV sedation depending on your needs. Both sedation options work differently but produce the same results, improved oral health and a more confident smile!
Reasons For Sedation Dentistry
There are many reasons for choosing sedation dentistry. If you have dental fears and anxiety, sedation dentistry can help you relax and feel completely at ease throughout any visit. Whether you have a dental check-up or are in need of dental treatment, your visit can go smoothly with the help of sedation. Sedation can also help your dentist accomplish a lot in just one visit! If you are in need of lengthy treatment, your dentist can work on your smile while you are comfortable and relaxed.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous oxide sedation is one of the most common forms of sedation. This type of sedation works by placing a mask over your nose during your visit. The sedation is administered through the mask and begins to work within minutes. With nitrous oxide sedation, you will not be bothered by sounds or smells during your visit. You can also respond to your dentist if needed. You will feel no anxiety and your visit will be over before you know it! Once the mask is removed, the sedation will begin to fade and you will be able to resume your normal activities following your visit. Sedation can be used for children, teens and adults!
IV sedation is typically used for more extensive treatments and lengthier visits. IV sedation is administered by one of our trained team members. With IV sedation, your dentist is able to adjust the level of sedation throughout treatment. After your treatment is finished, it is highly recommended that someone is there to drive you home, as the effects of IV sedation take a little longer to wear off.
