If you’re feeling anxious or fearful about your dental appointment, you’re certainly not alone. But you have options to help you feel calm and comfortable while you’re here! We’re trained to offer custom sedation dentistry in Maineville, OH, including nitrous oxide and IV sedation, which are incredibly safe and provide custom levels of relaxation. Whether you need help reducing anxiety for a hygiene cleaning or more complex surgery, know that you can enjoy a pleasant visit at our office with sedation dentistry.
What to Expect with Sedation
While our sedation dentistry options may alter your mental state—putting you in a calm and drowsy condition—you’ll never actually be unconscious. You may, however, find yourself drifting off into a pleasant and light sleep during your appointment, though you’ll be able to communicate with us and respond to commands. We’ll monitor your vitals during your entire procedure, too, to ensure you’re receiving the proper levels of sedation and are safe. Depending on your level of anxiety and the treatment you need, we’ll help you decide which type of sedation will be most beneficial for you.
Our Custom Sedation Options
While local anesthetic is not a type of sedation, it is a numbing agent we use during every procedure. Local anesthetic works to numb just the tooth and gums that need treatment and is effective at blocking sensations of pain.
Nitrous oxide is a gas that is breathed through a small mask work over your nose. This type of sedation takes effect immediately, putting you into a relaxed and euphoric state. For patients with minor dental anxiety, this is a great option.
IV sedation is the most customizable form of sedation and is administered intravenously. This type of sedation puts you into a highly calm and drowsy state and may even cause you to fall into a light sleep. Our partnering oral surgeon has extensive training in IV sedation and is certified to administer and monitor this option.
