Sedation Dentistry Near You
We understand that dental visits can be stressful and scary. That’s why we offer sedation dentistry in Legacy. We don’t want the fear or anxiety to prevent you from receiving the treatment you need. Sedation can effectively calm your nerves and allow you to receive treatment comfortably. We offer various types of sedation to accommodate all levels of anxiety.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous oxide or laughing gas is a mild form of sedation that is administered through a breathing mask. Patients will remain conscious but feel more comfortable and relaxed. There are no side effects, and the sedation will wear off immediately after.
Oral sedation provides a more profound level of conscious relaxation. The sedation will be administered through a pill. This is an excellent alternative for patients who have a fear of needles or want to be more relaxed.
IV sedation will provide the deepest level of conscious relaxation. The sedation will be administered through an IV needle and will be constantly monitored by our staff.
Who Can Benefit from Sedation?
Sedation is an excellent option to reduce your anxiety during a dental appointment. There are various types of people who can benefit from sedation, including:
- Those who want to receive multiple procedures in one visit
- Those who have a low pain tolerance
- Those who have anxiety
- Those who have tooth sensitivity
- Those who have difficulties sitting still for a long period of time
- Those who have strong gag reflexes
We provide sedation dentistry near you that is completely safe. Our dentist in Legacy will examine your current medications, allergies, and medical history prior to administering the sedation. Sedation allows you to be calm during your treatment. Patients should arrange a ride to and from our office if they are receiving oral or IV sedation as you can be drowsy afterward.
