Too many people avoid getting preventive dental care because of their dental anxiety or phobia, at the cost of their oral health. At Imprint Dental, we offer nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation to ensure our patients enjoy relaxing and stress-free dental visits. Dr. Price and his team never spare any effort to provide the highest quality dental care in a caring, understanding, and comfortable environment.

Sedation Dentistry - An Overview

Sedation dentistry can be quite a game-changer. It allows our valued patients to visit the dentist and maintain, restore, and enhance their smiles without stress or anxiety. The following is a look at our conscious sedation options. Regardless of the type of sedation you opt for, we will administer a local anesthetic for your comfort.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation:

Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide mixed with oxygen is inhaled through a mask placed over your nose. This minimal form of sedation takes effect quickly, leaving you feeling relaxed and comfortable. Once your dental procedure is over and we remove the mask, the sedative's effects will wear off immediately, allowing you to drive home and resume your daily activities.

Oral Conscious Sedation:

We'll administer oral medication before your appointment to help you relax during dental treatment. Depending on the dose of medication, the level of sedation can range from minimal to moderate. You may feel sleepy but will remain responsive. Most patients remember very little of their treatment. The effects of oral sedation will linger, so you'll need to have a friend or trusted family member drive you home.

Are You a Candidate for Dental Sedation?

Dr. Price may recommend sedation for the following reasons:

  • You have a deep-rooted fear or phobia of the dentist resulting in severe anxiety or panic attacks
  • You require complex or lengthy dental procedures
  • You experience extreme pain or sensitivity during dental treatment
  • You have a hard time getting numb or staying numb using local anesthetics
  • You have a strong gag reflex
  • You have a health condition that's worsened by stress
  • You can't sit still for long

Which Sedation Option Is Right for You?

Both nitrous oxide and oral sedation come with incredibly high safety records. Dr. Price will evaluate your unique needs and recommend the form of sedation that’s best for you, depending on your medical history, the treatments you require, and your level of anxiety.
