Sedation Dentistry

We understand that dental anxiety can prevent some individuals from seeking the dental care they need. That’s why we are proud to offer various forms of sedation dentistry to ensure your comfort and relaxation during dental procedures.

Intravenous Sedation (IV Sedation): Also known as “sleep dentistry,” IV sedation is the gold standard form of sedation we offer. This method is ideal for patients with extreme dental anxiety or those who prefer a higher level of comfort during treatment. With IV sedation, the level of sedation is tailored to your specific needs through carefully administered intravenous medication. Many of our patients choose IV sedation for oral surgery procedures, as it allows for efficient and prompt treatment, leading to improved post-operative healing.

Oral Conscious Sedation: If you experience mild to moderate dental anxiety, oral conscious sedation can help you feel more at ease. This form of sedation involves taking a prescribed pill before your dental procedure to induce a relaxed state. Oral conscious sedation provides optimal results for patients who may feel nervous or anxious about their treatment.

Laughing Gas (Nitrous Oxide): Laughing gas, or nitrous oxide, is a light form of sedation suitable for individuals with mild dental anxiety, including younger patients. Administered through a comfortable breathing mask, laughing gas helps alleviate anxiety and create a more relaxed and comfortable dental experience. We commonly use this sedation option for our younger patients to ensure they feel at ease during their dental visits. At Orchard Smiles Dentistry, your comfort and well-being are our top priorities. We will discuss your sedation options and determine the best approach to ensure a calm and stress-free dental experience. Our compassionate team will guide you through the process and address any concerns you may have.
