Sedation offers a peaceful escape from the jitters and discomfort often associated with dental visits. It allows you to calmly and comfortably glide through your appointment.

The Benefits of Dental Sedation

  • It Reduces Anxiety  

    Since sedation reduces anxiety and fear, you relax and feel at ease during your dental procedure.

  • It Helps Manage Pain

    Whether you have a low pain threshold or are undergoing a more invasive procedure, you can use dental sedation to manage pain and ensure a comfortable experience in the dental chair.

  • It Increases Comfort During Procedures

    The sedative reduces anxiety and manages pain, increasing your comfort levels during your procedure. The positive experience will make you more likely to continue with recommended dental treatments.

  • It Promotes Faster Treatment

    When you’re relaxed and comfortable during your dental appointment, you can undergo more extensive treatments in a single visit and reduce the number of visits needed.

  • It Improves Your Oral Health

    Sedation can improve oral health by reducing anxiety and making dental treatments more tolerable. You’ll be encouraged to seek regular dental care after giving dental sedation a try.

Different Types of Dental Sedation

  • Nitrous Oxide

    The dentist administers nitrous oxide or laughing gas through a small mask over your nose. You’ll immediately experience its relaxing effects but remain conscious and able to respond to verbal cues throughout your procedure.

  • Oral Sedation

    You’ll receive oral sedation by taking a pill, usually about an hour before your procedure. Its effect is mild to moderate, and you may feel drowsy or groggy. Additionally, you may not remember much of your procedure.

  • IV Sedation

    IV sedation provides a more rapid onset of action than other sedation methods because the dentist delivers the medication directly into your bloodstream through an IV. Although you’ll stay conscious throughout your procedure, you’ll have limited memory.
