What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry refers to optional treatments that patients can participate in before an appointment or procedure. Sedation dentistry relieves dental anxiety and puts patients into a state of deep relaxation that lasts throughout the entire visit. Patients who participate in sedation dentistry do not sleep through the procedures. You will be awake enough to answer questions, but feel incredibly comfortable even during procedures that may have made you feel anxious before. Sedation dentistry can also help by reducing sensitivity. At our practice, we offer both oral conscious sedation and laughing gas sedation.

Laughing Gas

Patients love laughing gas because it is simple to administer and wears off quickly after the appointment is over. If you choose to use laughing gas sedation, you can drive yourself to and from the dentist’s office.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Patients can also enjoy oral conscious sedation from Dr. Alex. Oral conscious sedation is administered using a small, easy-to-swallow tablet that can be taken before your procedure. With oral conscious sedation, patients achieve a deeper state of relaxation but will have to arrange for a loved one to drive them to and from the office.
