Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry: the use of pharmacological agents to calm and relax a patient prior to and during a dental appointment.

If you answer yes to any of these questions, having dentistry while you are sedated by Drs. Mark Williams, Kirk Solberg or Clay Miller may be an ideal choice for you.

  • Are you nervous about having dental treatment done?
  • Do you need to have multiple procedures performed?
  • Would you prefer to relax through your next dental appointment?
  • Would you like to have virtually zero pain when our doctors have finished up and have tremendously less postoperative pain? 

According to the Academy of General Dentistry, over 40 million Americans have some level of anxiety when it comes to going to the dentist. For some of them, the fear factor is so great that it forces them to neglect their dental needs.
Imagine not being afraid to go to the dentist and possibly being able to complete all your dental care in one appointment only! Should you need a cleaning, dental implants, bone grafting, extractions, crowns, veneers, or an extensive full mouth restoration, we offer sedation dentistry that will take away your anxiety and will make your dental experience a breeze!

A contemporary method of anesthesia, sedation dentistry is very safe and effective. You can relax through your entire procedure and typically you can have a healthy, beautiful new smile without remembering a thing about your appointment!

Which sedation method is right for me?

We offer nitrous oxide and oral sedation. The dentist will discuss your fears and evaluate your dental needs to determine the best method for you.

Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is inhaled through a nasal mask during treatment. Patients experience feelings of calm, warmth, and safety. The effects of nitrous diminish quickly following treatment, which allows patients to immediately resume normal activities.

Oral sedation patients take a pill prior to treatment and enter a state of complete relaxation in which they can converse with staff but remain blissfully unaware of treatment details. This type of sedation requires that patients have someone drive them to and from their appointment. The relaxing effects of oral sedation diminish gradually. Most people get back to their normal routine the evening of their oral sedation dentistry appointment.
