Watch and listen above as Dr. Kile explains the different sedation options available to patients at Darby Dental Smiles.
I have had patients tell me that coming to the dentist isn't their favorite thing to do…I get it! For patients who may have a little bit of anxiety or may not really want to be 100% present at their appointment, we do offer sedation. We have different forms of sedation to fit each situation depending on what our patient’s needs are.
We offer nitrous oxide, which commonly is known as laughing gas. We do this on a lot of patients, even children, just to help them relax during their appointment. We also offer oral conscious sedation, which is a prescription that we prescribe. It is a pill that you take once you are at your appointment, and it helps relax you during your appointment as well. Lastly, we offer IV sedation. This sedation option will put you in more of a Twilight so that you really aren't aware of your procedure at all. It can really make your dental experience very pleasant.
I care about you and hope that with these sedation options you will feel better about coming back to have all of your treatment completed. WeCare!
