There are a few reasons for needing sedation dentistry. You might have severe anxiety attacks or suffer from panic attacks when coming into the office. Likewise, you might have issues sitting still for treatment. Regardless of your current problem, sedation can help to improve your experience with us in the office.
The first step is to consult with you and determine what type of sedative is right for your needs. We will then work on providing you with the treatment that is right for you. Nitrous oxide is a popular option that involves breathing in a sweet-smelling gas that puts you into a deeply relaxed state. Oral sedation is ideal for patients who want to simply take a pill prior to their appointment that works to calm them down. Deeper sedation, known as IV sedation, is best for our patients who are undergoing oral surgery. IV sedation is safe, effective and can help to put you into a sleep-like state while in the office.
