What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry offers a comfortable and anxiety-free solution for individuals who may feel apprehensive about undergoing dental procedures. By utilizing various forms of sedation, from mild to deep levels, dentists can ensure that patients are relaxed, calm, and free from distress throughout their treatment. This caring approach not only helps those with dental anxiety but also assists patients with conditions such as sensitive teeth, strong gag reflexes, or a low pain threshold. Furthermore, sedation dentistry can enable dentists to complete complex or multiple procedures in a single visit, ultimately conserving time and minimizing the need for multiple appointments. Embracing this informative and straightforward approach, sedation dentistry is a considerate and compassionate method to address your dental needs, allowing you to achieve that healthy and confident smile with ease.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide sedation is an option to ensure a more relaxing and comfortable dental experience. Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a safe and effective method of achieving conscious sedation, as it helps minimize anxiety and discomfort during dental procedures. Administered through a small mask over your nose, it takes effect quickly, allowing you to feel calm and at ease within minutes while still maintaining the ability to communicate with our dental team. Throughout your treatment, our caring and professional staff will closely monitor your experience, and when the procedure is complete, the sedation effects will wear off rapidly, allowing you to resume your normal activities. 

Not only does nitrous help patients relax and reduce apprehension in general during dental treatments, but it is also very safe and easily reversible even for the most minimal of procedures. Its ability to be quickly adjusted depending on each patient’s needs ensures that an optimal level of sedation can be reached without ever putting them at risk. Additionally, nitrous oxide allows the person being treated to remain conscious during the procedure, avoiding the potentially disorienting side effects that may come with higher levels of sedation. Ultimately nitrous oxide sedation provides effective relief while ensuring both safety and comfort throughout any given dental visit.

Oral Conscious Sedation 

This type of sedation uses oral medication that has been carefully prescribed by our Eagle Dental professionals. The effects of oral conscious sedation can be felt relatively quickly after taking the medication, partially relaxing patients with a sense of comfort and peace. It differs from nitrous oxide in the way that it not only reduces anxiety but produces a light sleep-like state where patients are more relaxed and time passes more quickly. We offer oral conscious sedation to ensure that our most anxious patients feel relaxed and safe during their treatments.

Oral sedation offers a remarkable solution for those who experience anxiety or fear when it comes to dental procedures. This caring and comforting option allows patients to feel relaxed and at ease throughout their treatment. One of the primary benefits of oral sedation is its non-invasive nature; simply taking a pill eliminates the need for needles or more complex methods of sedation. Additionally, oral sedation helps promote quicker recovery time as patients typically have a heightened sense of cooperation during treatment and tend to have less overall fear. Dental services that can particularly benefit from oral sedation include complex procedures, such as root canals or tooth extractions, as well as regular appointments for individuals with dental anxiety. By providing a soothing, informative, and stress-free experience, oral sedation greatly enhances the well-being and confidence of the patient, ensuring a positive dental experience.

We want to make sure that our patients feel seen and heard, which is why it’s important to us that every sedation option we suggest is tailored exactly to your needs as well as your preferences.
