Relaxation Dentistry Is For Real

Millions of Americans are living with a very real fear of the dentist, or some level of dental anxiety. One of the main ways we can address dental anxiety is with dental sedation.

There are three different types of dental sedation (laughing gas, oral conscious sedation, and IV sedation) available at our practice.

Laughing gas is the most universal form of sedation at the dentist’s office. Many patients of all ages are able to benefit from it because it’s readily available at the dental chair and wears off quickly after your treatment.

Oral conscious sedation is a mid-level offering that comes in the form of a pill that you take before you get here. You will have to have someone drive you home because it takes some time for the effects to wear off.

IV sedation is the deepest form of sedation, and it’s often used to help patients who are extremely fearful or those who need extensive dental work. It is also good for gag reflexes or extra-fidgety folks.

Very few dentists in the area are able to offer relaxation dentistry services, so if you think you need it, just know that you can’t count on every dental office to have it. But ours does! Come see for yourself what we can do to help you take back your smile.
