Is Sedation Dentistry For Me?

Personalized Sedation Options

Prescribed and taken orally, oral sedation can be taken an hour before treatment or upon arrival at our office, making for a truly personalized sedation dentistry option. Depending on the type and potency of the medication, our patients may feel anything from a moderate decrease in anxiety to feeling so relaxed they fall asleep in the chair! With this sedation dentistry option, it may be necessary for a friend or family member to provide transportation home.
Administered intravenously, this type of dental anesthesia puts patients into a sleeplike state, though they will remain awake during their procedure. With amnesic effects, many patients who receive IV sedation may forget parts of their care or the entirety of their treatment. IV sedation is an ideal choice for patients with more severe anxiety and those needing more complex treatments. With some lasting effects, patients will need someone to drive them home after their visit.
One of the most popular sedation dentistry options among our patients is nitrous oxide, also known as “laughing gas,” is inhaled through a mask prior to your treatment. Though you’ll remain alert throughout your procedure, you’ll be relaxed and comfortable. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off quickly once your mask is removed, leaving you able to drive yourself home.

Perfectly Matched Sedation Services

Designing uniquely crafted smiles equipped with maximized comfort is our specialty at New Smiles. Dental anesthesia allows our dentists to make every appointment, no matter the treatment, comfortable, safe, and even relaxing. Dental fear and anxiety come in many different shapes and sizes. Since we understand not every patient’s level of dental anxiety is the same, we can adjust our dental anesthesia services to fit your exact needs to a T. For those with more severe dental anxiety or even more complex dental procedures, our dentists may suggest IV sedation to ensure complete comfortability. We can customize our sedation services to match your anxiety and treatment plan for a truly customized process. If you’re someone that struggles with dental anxiety, it’s important to know that not receiving regular dental care can actually cause more serious oral health issues long-term.
