Sedation Makes Dentistry Easy
Local anesthetic helps block the sensation of pain. It is injected directly into the treatment site and often used in conjunction with other forms of sedation.
Commonly known as “laughing gas,” this sedation dentistry option is applied via a mask worn during treatment. It is quick to take effect and gives you a light, drowsy feeling.
Taken as a pill before treatment, oral sedation will cause you to feel sleepy and calm. You will likely not remember much of your treatment, but will still be able to respond to our doctors.
We can bring in a professional anesthesiologist to provide advanced IV sedation. This is administered intravenously and is the ultimate in relaxing, dream-like sedation dentistry.
Reasons You May Need Sedation
- Negative past dental experience
- Fear or anxiety of dentists
- Gag easily
- Afraid of needles
- Require surgery
