Relieve Stress And Anxiety With Sedation Dentistry

Are dental fears and anxiety keeping you away from the dentist's chair? Sedation dentistry at Sleep Dentistry of Portland and Sleep Dentistry of Vancouver might be the solution you've been searching for. We proudly offer a range of sedation options, including nitrous oxide, minimal sedation, IV sedation, and even general anesthesia, to ensure your dental experience is as comfortable and stress-free as possible.

Nitrous Oxide:

Commonly known as "laughing gas," nitrous oxide is a mild sedative that helps you relax during dental procedures. It's administered through a mask placed over your nose, allowing you to remain awake and responsive throughout the treatment. Nitrous oxide is safe, effective, and wears off quickly, allowing you to resume your daily activities with no lingering effects.

Minimal Sedation:

Minimal sedation, usually administered orally in the form of a pill, helps you relax without putting you to sleep. You'll still be conscious during your dental visit, but the anxiety and discomfort will be significantly reduced. This approach is ideal for patients with mild to moderate dental anxiety.

IV Sedation:

Intravenous (IV) sedation is a stronger form of sedation, often used for more complex or lengthy dental procedures. A trained anesthesiologist will administer the sedative through an IV line, ensuring you are comfortably sedated throughout the treatment. You'll remain conscious but may have little to no memory of the procedure.

General Anesthesia:

For those with severe dental anxiety or who require extensive dental work, general anesthesia may be the best option. Under general anesthesia, you will be completely unconscious, ensuring a painless and anxiety-free experience. This level of sedation is typically reserved for oral surgeries or complex dental procedures.

What are the advantages of sedation dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is a game-changer for individuals who have been avoiding dental care due to fear or anxiety. It allows you to receive the dental treatment you need without the stress and discomfort that often comes with it. Moreover, it can be a time-saver, as multiple procedures can usually be completed in a single visit.
