Sedation Dentistry

Imagine not being afraid to go to the dentist. Imagine being able to accomplish all of your dental care in one appointment. This is what sedation dentistry can do for you. You’ll smile with confidence and chew your food without pain. If you have postponed dental work for years, sedation dentistry can change your life. Sedation dentistry protocols have been used safely for over 30 years with millions of dental procedures. Before starting any treatment, Dr. Van Le will review your medical history and explain how sedation dentistry can work for you. Together, you will decided what level of sedation will result in the most comfort for you.

Oral Sedation

On the day of your appointment, a companion will take you to the office, you’ll take an oral sedation pill, and then our experienced clinical team members will make certain that you’re relaxed and completely comfortable. Nitrous oxide may be administered to supplement the effects of oral sedation. They will continue to monitor you very closely while you’re sedated. Many patients have little or no memory of the visit.

Nitrous Sedation

Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide can be administered to ease the nerves and even to provide immediate pain relief. No preparation is required, and the effects subside immediately once the mask is removed. Nitrous can be used in conjunction with other oral sedation methods to optimize your comfort level. If nitrous is the only form of sedation you receive, you can drive yourself home and continue activities as normal.

We understand your fear and want to help you maintain your oral health and achieve the smile you desire.
