Oral Sedation Dentistry

Doc, I can’t do it unless you put me under!

  • Has fear caused you to postpone needed visits to the dentist?
  • Do you wish you could have all your dental work completed in a single visit, but have difficulty sitting in a dental chair for too long?

If the answer to these questions is yes, sedation dentistry may be the answer. With medicine to help you relax, the dental work can be performed while you are under mild sedation, eliminating discomfort and anxiety. Our experienced dental team will make you completely comfortable, and we will monitor you very closely while you’re sedated. Most patients feel no discomfort whatsoever, and after treatment you will have little or no memory of your visit.

I’m really just a little nervous.

Don’t let fear keep you from taking good care of your teeth or from having the smile you’ve always wanted. If you or your child don’t necessarily want to be “knocked out,” but are a little anxious, “laughing gas” may be the right solution. Laughing gas, also known as nitrous oxide, can help alleviate mild anxiety by promoting relaxation and raising your pain threshold. What’s more, laughing gas wears off quickly.

What does all of this mean? It means you can come to the office, have your dental treatment completed comfortably, and leave the office typically without any assistance and get on with your day. Be sure to ask at your first visit if you think laughing gas may be the answer for you.
