Sedation Dentistry

Anxiety-Free Dentistry

People of all ages can experience dental anxiety, which is why we strive to make your dental visits as stress-free as possible. Please share your feelings and concerns with us so we can help you receive the treatment you need at a pace that makes you feel comfortable.

Oral Conscious Sedation

For patients with moderate to severe dental anxiety, we offer oral conscious sedation. This involves taking a carefully-prescribed sedative shortly before your visit. By the time you arrive at our office, you will feel significantly relaxed.

  • With oral conscious sedation, you can stay awake while still feeling significantly calm and relaxed.
  • The effects of the prescription sedatives are usually mild. For safety reasons, it is necessary to have someone escort you to the appointment and back home after the visit.

IV Conscious Sedation

Intravenous (IV) conscious sedation provides a deep state of relaxation—deeper than most other forms of sedation dentistry—without requiring you to be completely asleep. Though you will feel significantly calm and relaxed, you will still be awake, aware of your surroundings and able to communicate with our team.

  • Most patients report having little or no memory of treatment while under IV sedation.
  • We can complete almost any treatment you need with IV sedation, from crowns and fillings to deep cleanings, extractions and wisdom teeth removal.
  • Recovery usually takes about 15-20 minutes, but you will still feel very drowsy. For this reason, we ask that you arrange for someone to drive you to and from your appointment.

 

IV sedation isn’t just for people with severe anxiety. It can also make dental visits easier for people who have a strong gag reflex, need multiple, complex procedures or cannot get sufficiently comfortable with nitrous oxide alone.
