Experience Dentistry Free From Stress And Anxiety

Sedation options are available to prevent you from feeling pain and discomfort during your dental procedure. There are several methods available and several may be combined to give you complete coverage. The type of sedation used will depend on your personalized treatment plan, your personal needs and the expert opinion of your dentist or specialist.

Types of Sedation

The different kinds of sedation available at our practice are as follows. We can temporarily numb the small area receiving the work, You can be sedated so you are still awake but completely relaxed, or you can numbed with nitrous oxide. Here’s some more information about each group:

Local Freezing

Everyone is familiar with this reliable standard. We patiently numb the area and then carefully inject a local anesthetic to put a small area of your mouth to sleep. You may feel pressure but will not feel pain.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is used in dentistry to help patients relax during dental procedures. It is administered through a mask over the nose, and the patient inhales the gas. Nitrous oxide induces a mild sedative and analgesic effect, reducing anxiety and pain perception. It acts quickly and is eliminated rapidly from the body. Dentists can control the dosage for a customized experience and to make sure your are properly prepared for the dental work.

The Benefits Of Sedation

Sedation and sleep dentistry are useful options that help us serve patients from all walks of life with many different challenges to overcome. Some of the benefits of sedation dentistry are as follows:

Overcoming Dental Anxiety

Sometimes the fear and worry can feel worse than the treatment itself. Dental anxiety shouldn’t stand between you and the dental treatment you need. If you have mild or extreme dental anxiety or fear is keeping you from seeking dental treatment, please speak up! We can help.

Make Time Fly By

For long procedures that leave you sitting in the chair with your mouth wide open for a long time, sedation will keep you relaxed and comfortable. Your procedure will be over before you know it.

Tailored for Your Personal Needs

Do you have a sensitive gag reflex? Chronic restlessness or restless leg syndrome? Does local freezing just not work for you? Sedation is really helpful in many different cases, ensuring that treatment is available to everyone.

When sedation is involved we always stress the importance of having a friend or family member drive you home and keep you company. It’s important to let the sedation wear off completely and give your body a rest before returning to your regular routine.

    The doctor did a comprehensive exam after a clerical error said I was meant to only have a short exam, the tech was kind and also very thorough. The front desk staff were pleasant and went out of their way to make sure I got accurate estimates without accidentally tripping my insurance company into thinking I’d had the work done already and used up my benefits. They were easily willing to do estimates for two different treatment options for me. I was able to get in for a new patient exam and for my long treatment appointment within a really reasonable time frame. I’m very happy with this whole office. I would recommend them.

    Everyone in here is super nice. Dr Butler is very down to earth and will answer your concerns. Moving from a very great dentist is nerving, however, the staff makes you feel comfortable very quick. Dr. Butler and his assistants are great. They are "light handed" and all procedures are almost painless. 5 stars!

    I thought the Dental Hygenist was outstanding. She was 23 years old (Didn’t get her name) but she did some extra steps that ensured my teeth were clean and unstained.
