Helping patients stay relaxed and comfortable during their appointments is very important to us at Cherry Blossom Family Dentistry. Sedation Dentistry dentistry refers to the dental discipline that specializes in reducing patients’ pain and discomfort, and to help patients reduce anxiety or fear about receiving treatment.
There are several dental treatments and procedures that warrant sedation methods. But if you are feeling particularly nervous or anxious about treatment, please let us know! We can provide sedation even if it for a treatment or procedure that isn’t listed above. We want you to feel comfortable and stress-free when you visit us here at our dental office, so you can get the treatment you need.
Our sedation dentistry services include:
This sedative is applied directly to the site of treatment through an injection. Once injected, it will block pain receptors and numb the immediate area. A local anesthetic will have no effect on the patient’s consciousness but may reduce their anxiety during treatment.
Patients will remain awake under oral sedation, but they will experience reduced anxiety or fear for a few hours under the effects of their prescribed drugs.
This sedation method is administered through a mask that is worn over the nose. When inhaled, laughing gas will make you feel relaxed and anxiety-free. You will remain awake during your treatment, and the effects of the laughing gas will wear off quickly after you stop inhaling it.
