What Is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry involves sedating a patient before performing a dental treatment or procedure. The idea is to relieve patients of their dental anxiety or fear associated with the dental procedure.  Some of the most common types of Dental Sedation include:

  • Nitrous Oxide, also called “laughing gas”
  • Oral Conscious Sedation
  • IV Sedation

Our different Sedation Dentistry methods allow us to provide the best possible dental experience for those who meet the need for it. 

What Is the Purpose of Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is appropriate for young children that have been diagnosed with extensive dental needs, children who suffer health concerns,  or children who are nervous about getting dental work done.

Who is Eligible for Sedation Dentistry?

The determination the need for these forms of sedation is dependent on the amount of dental treatment, age, health, and cooperation of the child.

Dr. Reading will determine if your child is a candidate and what type of sedation is best based on your child’s specific needs.
