North Auburn Dentistry Sedation Dentistry Services

It's quite common for people to feel nervous about going to the dentist's office. Nevertheless, this fear should not hinder you from protecting your oral health. The staff at North Auburn Dentistry is qualified in sedation dentistry and uses the latest medication and safest dental sedatives to help you feel relaxed.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Also called sleep dentistry, sedation dentistry is completely safe for children and adults to undergo. These drugs reduce your worry for any dental service by soothing your anxieties, rather than causing you to fall asleep the way general anesthesia does. Our sedation dentist has several drugs on-hand to help you rest easy and recover with a brilliant smile.

Oral Sedatives

Similar to muscle relaxers such as Valium, oral sedatives need an hour to start working. Before your appointment, simply take the prescribed medication. By the time you arrive at North Auburn Dentistry's office, you'll feel relaxed and prepared for the dentist's chair. Because of these lethargic side effects, it's important to have a friend or family member take you to and from your dental procedure.

Nitrous Oxide

Laughing gas, or nitrous oxide, helps patients feel at ease while also dulling any pain.

Intravenous Sedation

This sedative is the most useful and fast-acting selection we offer. Our sedation dentists can monitor the amount of sedative given to a patient through an IV. If the dentist scares you more than needles and you need to experience a long or difficult procedure, this is the best route.
