Who Should Consider Dental Sedation?
We may recommend dental sedation for patients in a variety of situations, including:
- To relieve dental anxiety or phobia
- To ensure the safety of children who may not be able to understand their dental procedures
- To improve comfort for patients with sensitive teeth, gums, or gag reflexes
- To ensure safety and comfort for patients who have impaired cognition or health concerns that make treatment without the aid of sedation risky or painful
- To complete numerous or complex dentistry procedures in a single visit
Sedation Dentistry Options
Many patients experience dental phobia or anxiety that makes visiting the dentist uncomfortable, but the caring dentists and dentistry team at 21st Century Dental & Sleep Center offer a wide range of sedation dentistry options to ensure every patient we treat feels relaxed and free from pain throughout even the most advanced procedures.
Simply put, relaxation dentistry is about our dedication to creating a dental office environment that is free from stress. Communication is key to helping patients feel confident in their treatment plan to avoid unnecessary stress or anxiety. We take the time to thoroughly explain your oral health concerns, treatment options, and partner with you to create a treatment plan you will feel 100% comfortable with. Throughout your time in our office, you will be treated with kindness and sensitivity. We know that even the gentlest treatment can’t help every patient stay relaxed, so we offer nitrous oxide and IV sedatives to help patients achieve the ideal level of comfort and relaxation during dental care.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous oxide or “laughing gas” has been used for centuries to provide comfort for dental patients. Inhaled through the nose during treatment, the dosage of nitrous oxide can be quickly adjusted to help patients achieve and maintain optimal relaxation throughout their dental care services. In addition to its fast onset, nitrous oxide sedation wears away quickly, so patients can resume their regular daily routine immediately after treatment.

IV Sedation Services
IV sedation allows our team to offer patients a deep level of conscious sedation that can be easily adjusted throughout treatment to allow patients to maintain complete comfort and relaxation. Like nitrous oxide, IV sedation can be adjusted throughout treatment to maintain the optimal comfort level. Unlike nitrous oxide sedation, the effects of IV sedation do not wear away quickly. In fact, it may take 12 to 24 hours for the effects of IV sedation to completely wear off. You should have a trusted friend or family member drive you to and from the office.

What Sedation Service is Right for You?
No treatment is right for every patient. Before we recommend a sedation dentistry option for your treatment, we’ll take the time to review each of your options and help you find the right sedation plan for you. Each patient will receive a personalized sedation dentistry plan that will keep them safe, comfortable, and stress free during the most advanced dental treatments.
