What is Sedation (Sleep) Dentistry?

Sleep dentistry is ideal for patients who are nervous or scared to come into the office for treatment. Unfortunately, dental-related anxiety and phobias keep millions of people from visiting their dentist each year. One of the best ways to combat this fear is to be provided with a way that relaxes and calms you down while treatment is being administered. We offer safe, effective and highly beneficial sedative options to each of your patients.

What happens during the Sedation (Sleep) Dentistry process?

We offer a few different types of sedation to help improve your visit here in the office. Nitrous oxide is used to help relax you during treatment. It is administered through a small mask that is placed over your nose. As you breathe in the sweet-smelling gas, you’ll feel relaxed and calm. Oral conscious sedation is administered via a simple pill that you take prior to your appointment.

The pill helps to relax and calm you down while treatment is being done. IV sedation is best suited for patients who want or need to be asleep during their appointment. For all sedative options, we advise patients to have someone available to bring them home from the office.
