Dental “Sleep” Sedation
Are you afraid of going to the dentist or having dental fear or anxiety? Do you feel uncomfortable sitting on the dental chair? Would you rather endure a tooth ache than receive proper dental healthcare? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you have what experts call ‘dental fear.’ We may have the solution you need.
Sedation dentistry refers to the use of sedatives to relax you for your dental procedure. You can count on this service whenever you need to undergo an invasive procedure or deal with your dental fear. There are three types of sedation offering different levels of relaxation:
If your treatment is non-invasive and you only have mild dental fear, you may settle for an orally administered form of sedation. Our dentist will give you a pill that you have to take prior to your operation. In spite of the simplicity of the process, however, oral sedatives are still powerful.
This type of sedation is the most frequently used of the three. It involves the use of nitrous oxide or ‘laughing gas’ to normalize your bodily functions and relax you for the dental treatment. In most cases, you will fall asleep. You may even forget what has happened during the procedure.
Intravenous Sedation (IV)
If your treatment is invasive or you have severe dental fear, you may count on this intravenous sedation to make things easier for you. This form of sedation is administered by injecting the sedative into your bloodstream. The result is immediate and you may relax almost instantly.

Whether you’re having simple teeth cleaning procedure or a complex restoration treatment, you don’t have to worry about any pain or discomfort.
