Enjoy Easy Dental Care With Sedation

Nitrous oxide has been used in dentistry since the 1800s. Source.
The last thing we want is for you to feel tense and worked up during your dental visit. We’re sure you’d rather feel relaxed and at ease than nervous. To help you get the most out of your smile care, we offer a choice of dental sedation options. With sedation, you’ll completely relax in the dental chair and let your worries float away. We’ve helped many patients through their dental anxiety and would love to do the same for you.

You can take your pick from the following sedation methods:

  • Laughing Gas – This sweet-smelling gas will give you an all-over sense of euphoria and well-being after you breathe it in. You may even experience a tingly sensation over your body as you comfortably lie back without any cares.
  • A Small Pill – Before your appointment, you’ll take an FDA-approved pill which Dr. Despain will prescribe for you. It will help you completely relax and unwind in the dental chair.
  • IV Sedation – If you want to be blissfully unaware of anything around you, IV sedation should be your choice. You’ll be in a twilight state and won’t remember much about your procedure after you wake up.

You’ll also find comforting patient amenities to help you relax and feel at home:

  • Warm blankets to chase away the chill
  • Soft pillows to support your neck
  • Headphones so you can lose yourself in music

Your Appointments Go Smoothly With Sedation

Whichever sedation option is right for you, you will appreciate that it is a simple process. Here is what you can expect:

  • Dr. Despain will review your medical history with you to determine which sedation is right for you.
  • For laughing gas, you simply breathe in the nitrous oxide through a mask. It acts fast and fades quickly.
  • For oral sedation, you’ll take the sedative beforehand. You feel completely at ease by the time your treatment begins. You’ll still be responsive to instructions and commands we give you.
  • For IV sedation, you will come into our office and receive general anesthesia from a professional anesthetist. While you are asleep, we will complete your dental procedure.
  • With IV sedation or oral sedation, you’ll need to arrange for a ride home from a friend or family member. These sedative effects typically last several hours. With laughing gas, you can drive home comfortably.
