What Is Sedation Dentistry?

Comfort Dental Care and Orthodontics is the only provider with the credentials necessary to perform sleep dentistry. We specialize in the use of sedation dentistry particularly for young children who might otherwise be afraid of the dentist or the discomfort associated with more intensive dental processes, but also for adults who are anxious about getting an important procedure done.

Is Sedation Dentistry Safe?

Sedation dentistry at Comfort Dental Care and Orthodontics is extremely safe, and because we’re the only provider in the area with the credentials necessary to perform sleep dentistry, you know you’re in good hands. We utilize three main types of sedation dentistry, including nitrous oxide, IV sedation, and oral sedation. We always carefully evaluate every patient’s medical history beforehand, which is why you can rest assured that sedation dentistry is a thoroughly painless and safe procedure.

How is Sedation Dentistry Performed?

With our friendly staff, relaxing atmosphere, and ultra-high quality treatment, it’s no wonder so many patients choose the comfy way with Comfort Dental Care and Orthodontics. Nitrous oxide is typically referred to as “happy gas” or “laughing gas” and acts as an analgesic (painkiller) as well as instilling a sense of relaxation and cooperation. It is used in many medicinal procedures on both adults and children.

IV Sedation Dentistry

Do you have any fear or anxiety about going to the dentist? Ideal for those patients who wish to combine a variety of intensive procedures into one visit, IV conscious sedation dentistry using an IV applied by an anesthesiologist is often the best choice in such cases. During these procedures, patients may go back and forth between a conscious and unconscious state, and hours can start to feel like minutes. This method does have some lasting side effects following your procedure and patients will need an escort to return home.

Dental Implants

Among our areas of world-class expertise is our high-level capacity with dental implants, including zygomatic implants, and part of the reason that we are so popular for patients seeking dental implants is because of our tremendous expertise in sedation dentistry and IV sedation dentistry.

Preparing for Sedation Dentistry

There is no particular preparation necessary for sedation dentistry.

Recovery from Sedation Dentistry

After your dental procedure is complete, we will turn off the nitrous oxide and let you breathe normally. This will flush any remaining nitrous oxide out from out of your system, and you will become more alert and normal.

How Much Does Sedation Dentistry Cost?

Dental insurance may cover certain types of sedation dentistry. Check with your provider to see if it is covered by your plan. If you do not have dental insurance, Comfort Dental Care and Orthodontics offers convenient financing  options through CareCredit® and OrthoBanc® to help make sedation dentistry and related procedures more affordable.
