WHAT IS A SEDATION DENTISTRY?

If you are in pain or have always been nervous about visiting the dentist, we offer sedation dentistry for patients who are apprehensive. With the use of sedation dentistry you will feel safe, comfortable, and relaxed to receive the dental care you need. While sedation is often talked about as a way to cope with dental anxiety and stress, we can actually use it in a number of different situations. This may include:

  • Make long or multiple treatments easier to complete in a single visit
  • Help those with a low pain tolerance
  • Help those with a sensitive gag reflex
  • Help those who have difficulty sitting still in the dental chair for long periods of time
  • Keep patients with developmental or physical disabilities comfortable

We offer several types of sedation options such as IV sedation, oral sedation, and needle-free sedation such as nitrous oxide, often known as laughing gas. Dr. Feng takes pride in providing a personalized treatment plan for each of her patients.  During the evaluation, she will review your overall health to discuss which sedation option works best for you.

Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is the safest and most convenient form of sedation because the gas takes just a few minutes to set in and leaves your system quickly once the treatment is over.
