We recognize that dental visits can be a source of anxiety for many. To address this, we provide sedation dentistry, a service designed to create a calm and comfortable dental experience for our patients. This approach is particularly helpful for those who may feel uneasy about dental treatments.

Understanding Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry is sometimes mistakenly called “sleep dentistry,” but patients are typically awake. This method is excellent for reducing dental anxiety and allows our team to perform necessary procedures while you are relaxed.

Sedation Options at Our Clinic

We offer a variety of sedation methods tailored to our patients’ needs:

  • Nitrous Oxide: Commonly known as laughing gas, this sedative is breathed in through a mask. It helps you relax and diminishes discomfort during the procedure. The effects of nitrous oxide are mild and wear off quickly, allowing you to drive yourself home afterwards.
  • Oral Sedation: This involves taking a sedative pill before your appointment, making you feel drowsy yet awake enough to communicate with our team. You will need to arrange transportation to and from the clinic, as the effects take some time to wear off.

Commitment to Safety

We thoroughly review your medical history and discuss your health needs before considering sedation. Our experienced dental team monitors your vital signs and comfort throughout the procedure, adhering to strict safety protocols tailored to your specific health profile.

The Advantages of Sedation Dentistry

Choosing sedation dentistry can significantly improve your dental care experience by:

  • Minimizing anxiety and discomfort during procedures
  • Enabling the completion of multiple treatments in fewer visits
  • Facilitating easier management of long treatment sessions
  • Assisting patients who have a strong gag reflex

Who Can Benefit from Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is ideal for patients who have dental anxiety, find it difficult to endure lengthy procedures, or have a significant gag reflex. It can also benefit those who require comprehensive dental care but feel uneasy about undergoing multiple treatments. We will assess whether sedation dentistry is suitable for you during your consultation.
